I guess with his health concerns it's a double edged sword. If he suddenly finds the fountain of health, it's a bargain. If his health detoriarates, this contract is Brandon Roy-esque.

All depends if he can stay healthy... It was a risk for both sides.

Warriors didn't want to wait... If he has a breakout year and stays healthy he would have demanded more money. Got it done, don't have to worry about his contract anymore, just his health.

Risk for Curry obviously because he won't get a max, but that would only happen if he stayed healthy all year and led the Dubs to the playoffs.

Go Warriors. :D

Not bad specially for a an injury prone player.

lol, please

That's the point. Both sides know that Curry needs to prove he can stay healthy. If he makes it through this deal without significant injury, he'll probably get near max on his next one.

as has been said, bargain if his glass ankles can hold up.

It's a bargain, assuming he stays healthy.

I mean just remember you're paying someone 44 million dollars who has paper mache ankles

Stephen Curry told Yahoo! Sports he has agreed to a four-year, $44 million contract extension with the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.

Curry is expected to sign the extension prior to Wednesday's season opener against the Phoenix Suns. A league source told Yahoo! Sports the Warriors initially had contract discussions on a smaller contract extension that would pay Curry $8.5 million in the first year and $10 million in the fourth because of concerns over Curry's lingering ankle issues. But a day after Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson agreed to a four-year, $48 million contract extension, Golden State upped the ante to re-sign Curry prior to Wednesday's midnight ET deadline. Curry would have been a restricted free agent after the season if a deal wasn't reached.

"I'm excited about getting the deal done," Curry said. "Now I can focus on basketball and staying healthy. I always wanted to get it done before the season started. Now I got it done."

Curry was limited to 26 games last season because of his ankle injury. His scoring average dropped to 14.7 points after being nearly four points higher the previous season. His surgically repaired ankle also caused him to miss the end of preseason. Curry, however, is expected to play Wednesday night. The Bay Area Newspaper Group first broke the story of Curry's signing.

"My ankle was a big factor in the [contract extension] number," Curry said. "They had to protect themselves a little bit."


Sad Really. If he just stayed healthy he would've netted a James Harden Maximum Contract Type Money. But $44M is still not chump's change. the talent's there. Talent was never a question with Curry. And he shut those idiots up that criticized his defense before the draft by averaging 1.7 steals over his three year NBA career.

So far Stephen Curry has averaged 17.5PPG, 5.8 APG, 44% 3Pt%, 90% FT%, and 4RPG over his three year NBA career with the Warriors. Talent was never a question, its simply health. Without a doubt Curry is a franchise player if he can avoid the DL.

Sorry guys. I didn't see it. I've been following Curry a long time ever since the Knicks missed drafting him by one draft pick and I guess I couldn't resist a chance to make a thread on him. You can Merge them :)

Once again I apologize guys (:

WTF IS THIS ALL ABOUT!!! A good young player getting a contract that is moderately reasonable? What is this league coming too! He should have been given a disgusting contract for way more than he is worth! Do the GSW have a GM who is actually reasonable and smart?

The world makes no sense to me now. I can't believe DeRozen will be making almost as much as Curry...

Based on this, Warriors would've gave him a max if he could play a game.

I feel this is the fairest of the extensions today. Probably still to much but way below what he's worth on a league scale if healthy.

This is such a horrible contract. Curry has the worst injury problems out of every PG in the NBA and now he's gonna be making $11M/yr?

Ask the Hornets if giving an injury prone player a max contract is a good thing. Hell, the Suns got so close to being screwed over like them!

Curry didn't get max. He got below his market value.

Can somebody tell me why people keep saying Curry is injury plagued? He's only had one injury, and that was in a strike shortened season? I mean, he's missed a few games over his first couple of years, but nothing to be overly concerned about. And his game is about his stroke, not his athleticism. He's a great shooter. One of the best in the league to be frank. He's at 44& from behind the arc on his career! That is amazing!

False. The ankle issue started before last season. Also, he has been twisting it again and again every time he went into the game for more than 10 minutes. Had a surgery.. still twisting it up.

Good thing you failed to mention someone stepped on it, not that he twisted it up.

According to med school students in Harvard, his ankle is weaker than a common 72 year old grandma's ankles.

Well, i was mentioning last years' issue. Current issue with Curry's ankle doesn't count since he didn't injure it. Just got tripped.

I don't know why they don't wait a year and see if he stays healthy before offering a contract extension... He is totally worth that number if he stays healthy, but it's a huge gamble right now
