Steph Curry who is one of the most under paid NBA players by the way, can stand to benefit from his upcoming contract renewal with the Golden State Warriors. Thanks to the NBA’s new collective bargaining agreement, according to league sources.
According to ESPN:
Curry stands to benefit massively from the new designated veteran player provision in the freshly agreed to labor deal, which sets up the two-time reigning MVP to triple his current salary of $12 million to $36 million next season.
Currently playing out the last year on a four-year, $44 million extension that he signed in October 2013 at a time that his long-term durability was still being questioned, Curry will be eligible in July for a new deal that sources say would be worth an estimated $207 million over five years, making it the richest contract in league history and paying out an estimated $47 million in the final season (2021-22).
