NBA: Kerr not expecting new arrivals

Steve Kerr says he isn't expecting any new arrivals at Golden State Warriors as the NBA trade deadline approaches.

Golden State Warriors are 5/1 to win the NBA Championship outright and star man Stephen Curry is 21/4 to be the regular season MVP.

New faces not likely

There are plenty of moves that could happen before Thursday's NBA trade deadline, with the window due to close at 8pm GMT, but Kerr says it is unlikely the Dubs will see any arrivals or departures.

"Yeah, I don't think anybody's expecting anything," Kerr said, via NBC Sports. 

"You never say never. I've been around long enough to know that things can happen."

Golden State saw a nine-game winning run ended in comprehensive fashion at Utah Jazz on Wednesday as they slipped to a 111-88 defeat in Salt Lake City.

The Warriors sit in second spot in the Western Conference with a 41-14 overall record and are now three-and-a-half games behind leaders Phoenix Suns, who have a league-best 44-10 record.

Curry content to build within

Meanwhile, Curry doesn't think Golden State need to make any changes to their roster but he feels they do need to raise their game if they are to challenge for the championship.

"That would be the expectation," he said when asked if he thought the Warriors would be quiet on deadline day. 

"[Because we're] Second in the West, a really good record," Curry added when pressed on why he thought no new arrivals were needed.

"We've had some bad nights, we have some things we need to get better at - we understand that we're not playing championship basketball every night. But we have shown and demonstrated that."

Golden State are back in action on Thursday as they entertain New York Knicks.
