The Golden State Warriors have signed two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry to a four-year, $215 million contract extension on Tuesday, August 3, according to a report by ESPN.

The deal makes the three-time champ the first player in history to sign two contracts worth more than $200 million, according to Curry’s agent, Jeff Austin of Octagon Basketball.

The 33-year-old Curry’s current contract is set to expire next summer, which means this extension will tie him to the Warriors through 2026.

The 12-year veteran recorded another stellar season in 2021, winning his second scoring title (32.0 points per game), earning first-team All-NBA for the fourth time, and making his seventh appearance in the NBA All-Star Game.

Taken No. 7 overall in the 2009 NBA Draft out of Davidson by Golden State, Curry boasts career averages of 24.2 points on 47.7% shooting (43.3% from behind the arc), 4.6 rebounds, and 6.5 assists in 762 games. – Rappler.com
