Steph Curry golfs with Barack Obama, Jordan Spieth in Dallas

Programming note: Warriors-Mavs coverage starts today at 4:30pm with Warriors Pregame Live on NBC Sports Bay Area.

After the Warriors lost to the Grizzlies on Saturday night in Memphis, they flew to Dallas.

And on Sunday in the Lone Star State, Steph Curry enjoyed some free time on the golf course:

This is not the first time Curry has enjoyed a round of golf with Obama, as the two hit the links back in August 2015.

"My third time actually, so it's old news," Curry joked after shootaround on Monday. "We're always teammates. We're 2-1 now. Much better record than the Warriors."

What was Obama like?

"Same personality, same kind of charisma and vibe around him," Curry said. "Just maybe two or three less secret service members."

Curry and the Warriors face the Mavs on Monday night.

Seth Curry unfortunately will not suit up because of a left leg injury.

Klay Thompson makes his triumphant return to China

Klay Thompson makes his triumphant return to China

The sequel is rarely as good as its predecessor, but convention goes out the window when China Klay is involved.

That's right, Klay Thompson is back in China this summer. He made his first stop in Beijing on Saturday, and will spend the next seven days in the country. Here's his itinerary:

June 23 -- Beijing
June 25 -- Jinan
June 26 -- Zhengzhou
June 27 -- Taiyuan
June 28 -- Guiyang
June 30 -- Guangzhou

How many shots will he air ball? Will he only eat smoky foods? Two countries await those answers with baited breath. 

During the draft, the Warriors tried to trade up to select Jacob Evans

During the draft, the Warriors tried to trade up to select Jacob Evans

With the 28th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, the Warriors selected Jacob Evans.

"When our pick was up, it was clear it was him," Bob Myers told reporters on Thursday night. "There was no debate as far as who we were taking. When it got to us, he was the guy without hesitation."

You could say that the Warriors are lucky to have ended up with Evans.

The front office nearly executed a trade to ensure they got the Cincinnati product.

"We had a number of guys who we were really interested in, but I think as the draft started to continue to go on, it became pretty apparent to us that a bunch of the other guys that we liked were not going to be there," assistant GM Kirk Lacob said on 95.7 The Game on Friday morning. "We actually at one point tried to trade up to get Jacob -- we were getting a little worried that he wasn't gonna get there -- but we were really happy that he ended up with us."

Golden State also tried to buy a pick early in the second round, but couldn't strike a deal.
