NBA free agency does not appeal to Steph Curry, who is happy and settled at reigning champions the Golden State Warriors.

Curry - the fifth-highest paid player on the Warriors roster - is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2017.

The 2015 MVP and NBA Finals champion, however, has no plans to leave Golden State after helping the Warriors to their first championship since 1975 in June.

"As I am thinking right now, free agency isn't really appealing to me because I love where I'm at, love the organisation I'm playing for, and the Bay Area is home for me and my family," Curry told Sporting News.

"It helps being world champs and you want to continue to build the momentum that we've established and I hope to have a huge part of that in the long term.

"But I think the best approach for me is to try and stay as in the moment as possible.

"Everybody in this league is going to have many decisions to make, and you'll be in a lot of different situations throughout your career, so in order to enjoy the ride, you kind of have to not get too ahead of yourself and just stay in the moment."

Curry averaged 23.9 points, 7.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds and two steals in 80 regular-season games last season.

In the play-offs, Curry produced averages of 28.3 points, 6.4 assists, five rebounds and 1.9 steals to lead the Warriors to the title.
