Stephen Curry Signs Supermax Contract With Golden State Warriors

3 min read

As expected, Stephen Curry has indeed resigned with the current NBA World Champions the Golden State Warriors. Many people were speculating that Curry may accept less than the maximum available to him, but why would he? For the past few years Curry has been one of the NBA’s best and most under paid players. In fact, he was the MVP in both the 2015 and 2016 seasons, yet he was playing on a 4 year, $44 million contract.

With a basketball resume that is quickly expanding, and his popularity at an all time high, there was no doubt that Curry would have been offered the “Super Max”. He is now the first NBA player to be offered a contract valued over $200 million. This will now be a new precedence in the NBA, with more players in the near future being offered contracts over $200 million.

How Will This Affect Other Golden State Warriors Free Agents?

The first name that comes to mind is Kevin Durant. It’s been recently reported that he has not opted into his player option for the upcoming 2017/2018 season. This was an expected move as many reports stated he was waiting to see how Golden State handles the other free agents in the offseason.

Another name that is of great significance is Andre Iguodala. As of this writing, he’s actually having meetings with other potential teams, namely the San Antonio Spurs. Logic will tell you that there is no way that Iggy leaves a championship team, but money and playing time could be the deciding factor in his negotiations.

The free agency period has just begun, but already it’s shaping up to be a doozy!
