After helping Golden State Warriors to a second NBA title in three years, Stephen Curry has agreed to a new deal with the NBA team worth $201m.

Curry who was the seventh overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft earned $44m across four years – $12.1 million a year, the 85th highest deal in the NBA.

His new status as one of the top players in the NBA has seen him being rewarded with a mega rise.

Curry’s new deal with the Golden State Warriors is the biggest in NBA history surpassing the five-year £ $153 deal Mike Conley signed in 2016 with the Memphis Grizzlies.

After congratulating Curry, another NBA top gun LeBron James took to Twitter to state that his rival is still being unpaid.

James questioned the salary-cap rule of the NBA and said that Curry deserves more.

 

“So tell me again why there's a cap on how much a player should get?? Don't answer that. Steph should be getting 400M this summer 5yrs,” the Cleveland Cavaliers star wrote.
