Steph Curry has agreed to a five-year, $201 million contract extension with the Golden State Warriors — making it the the richest contract in league history.
Curry, 29, is the first NBA star who will sign for the supermax contract, the crossing of a $200 million threshold that eventually will become the norm for the NBA’s biggest superstars.
An eight-year veteran, Curry has been the foundational star for the Warriors, who won their second NBA championship in three years earlier in June.
The Warriors point guard had been on a four-year, $44 million contract, an extension that he signed when there were grave concerns about the sturdiness of his ankles.
Curry, a four-time All Star, finished the regular season averaging 25.3 points per game. He has led the league in 3-point field goals for a record five straight seasons.
