NBA training camps officially open Oct. 2 (though teams heading abroad for the preseason are getting a three-day head start). Which players have something to prove before the real games start? breaks down the players to watch at camp.


Like all players drafted in the first round of 2009, Curry is eligible for a contract extension until Oct. 31. The Warriors, though, are eager to see the health of Curry's right ankle before making a long-term commitment, making this a crucial camp for the 6-foot-3 guard. Curry was limited to 26 games in the lockout-shortened season last year but was given full medical clearance on Sept. 20. When healthy, Curry is a devastating shooter with a knack for playing the passing lanes. If he can prove the ankle injuries are behind him, he could have a new contract extension before camps break.
