Stephen Curry, Warriors Reach $201MM Deal

JULY 6, 9:14pm: The Warriors have officially re-signed Curry to his new Designated Veteran Extension, according to RealGM’s transactions log.

JUNE 30, 11:15pm: Now that the free agency period has officially begun, Curry and the Warriors have agreed on the expected $201MM super-max deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tweets.

10:31pm: Although it was never really in doubt, the Warriors and Stephen Curry are on pace to to strike a five-year, $201MM super-max deal after midnight EST, Marc Stein of ESPN tweets.

Notoriously underpaid over the course of the past three seasons, two of which he earned the Most Valuable Player award in, Curry is set to get his long-awaited payday.

There has never been any doubt that the Curry was committed to returning to the Bay Area, nor was there doubt that the franchise was ready to foot the bill. Of note, however, is how quickly the two parties worked to strike an agreement.

While the concept of Kevin Durant leaving some money on the table has been floated, that has not happened in this case with Curry.

    If they lose Iguodala they’ll be beatable. No more help for KD DEFENSIVELY.

      losing iggy does not make them beatable!!! those guys don’t rely on the defense as much as they rely on offense. iggy can be replaced by players such as Roberson if he chose to leave okc. come on dude iggy??? lol

        Roberson is a restricted free agent, so even if he wanted to leave OKC, he wouldn’t really have a choice, and the Warriors wouldn’t be able to afford signing him to a good enough offer sheet anyway

      I would say Klay and draymond are pretty decent defenders

        There’s a market for sports. Would you rather the owners keep all the billions they’re making and the players get payed terribly for putting out good product?

    GSW needs to re-sign Iggy. Steph and Livingston are locked in and Durant is pretty much a lock to re-sign. Iggy is the x-factor for GSW off the bench and is the reason GSW is head and shoulders better than everyone else. If Iggy leaves, then GSW is beatable.

      Can you imagine what real players like Magic and Bird would be worth these days.

      If they were making less- the owners and the league would just be making all that extra money.
      Imagine if there were NO cap! Curry and others would be over $50M per year.

      It starts at $1.50 per dollar and increases from there depending on how far a team is over the cap or how many years in a row they’ve been over the cap.
