Steph Curry: $44 million contract extension 'most favorable' in NBA history

.................................................................

"Stephen Curry is well aware that the Golden State Warriors wouldn't have built a dynasty without him and his team-friendly extension."

"In 2012, Curry, then 24 and entering his fourth season, signed a four-year, $44 million extension with the Warriors."

"At the time, Curry was battling ankle injuries, having played just 26 games during the 2011-12 season."

"There were questions about how he would fare as he got older, and some even viewed the commitment as risky."

"That deal ended up one of the biggest steals in NBA history when Curry blossomed into an MVP, winning the award in 2015 and 2016,"-

-"While the Warriors made back-to-back Finals, winning the championship in 2015."

"Speaking on "The Draymond Green Show," Curry called that extension "maybe the most favorable in NBA history," while laughing."

"Curry's extension — as Green noted — paved the way for the Warriors to build a super-team."

.................................................................

"They extended Klay Thompson and re-signed Draymond Green, with Curry's cap-friendly deal saving them from having to make difficult financial choices with their best players."

"When the NBA's salary cap exploded in 2016, the Warriors then had cap space to sign Kevin Durant outright, adding an MVP-caliber player to a team that had just won 73 games."

"All because their MVP was making $11 million per season."

"Curry has come a long way since that team-friendly deal. In 2017, he signed a five-year, $201 million contract."

"And this past off-season, he signed a four-year, $215 million extension, making him the first, and so far, only, player to sign back-to-back $200 million deals."

"According to Spotrac, Curry will make nearly $60 million in 2025-26, when he is 37."
