NBA star, Stephen Curry of Golden State Warriors, has agreed to a five-year extension deal, worth around $201 million, the richest contract in the league history.
His agent Jeff Austin of Octagon, told ESPN:
Golden State general manager, Bob Myers also confirmed the deal on Friday, saying that the Warriors will finalize the contract once the free-agency moratorium ends Thursday.
‘An eight-year veteran, Curry has been the foundational star for the Warriors, who recently won their second NBA championship in three years.’
Curry, who’s a two-time NBA MVP, four-time All-Star, and a three-time All-NBA first-team performer was drafted to the Golden State Warriors team in 2009, a rookie contract which cost around $12.7m
The basketballer has also been congratulated by his strongest rival, LeBron James of Cleveland Cavaliers, whom he has faced in the past three Finals.
