Stephen Curry was previously on the league’s most bargained contract a 4-year, $44 million contract. But that was before he became the back-to-back MVP, went to three consecutive NBA Finals, won two NBA championships, had the best winning regular season EVER, and broke many individuals and team records. So it was about time he was due for a raise from 11 million a year.
When he became a free agent this year there was no question he’d return to the Warriors, but the question everyone was wondering was how much would he sign back for? Now we know. Stephen Curry just signed the richest contract in NBA history. He signed back to the Warriors for 5 years/$201 million dollars! Undoubtedly deserved for leading a team that’s taking the league by storm. Congrats Steph!
