OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Golden State Warriors have exercised the options on guard Stephen Curry and forward Ekpe Udoh that will keep them under contract through the 2012-13 season.

The moves announced Wednesday were mere formalities on Golden State's promising young players.

Curry averaged 18.6 points, 5.8 assists and 3.9 rebounds in his second season. He is recovering from right ankle surgery but is expected to be ready if training camp starts on time in the fall.

Udoh averaged 4.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.48 blocks per contest in his rookie campaign.
