Two-time MVP Stephen Curry has stated he doesn’t mind being the fourth-highest paid player at the Warriors.
“One thing my pops always told me is you never count another man’s money,” Curry said. “It’s what you’ve got and how you take care of it. And if I’m complaining about $44 million over four years, then I’ve got other issues in my life.”
Green, Thompson and Durant all earn more than the point guard. He’ll most definitely earn more than he is earning when he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
The Warriors can offer him a five-year contract at $210 million, with other clubs only able to offer a four-year contract at $140 million.
It will pay to stay and Curry said as of now, he can’t envision himself relocating next summer.
“I can’t,” Curry said. “Like I’ve said from Day 1, when I was first asked about free agency, this is a perfect place to play. Bay Area fans are amazing, our organization’s amazing, we’ve put together an amazing team that’s competing for championships every year. … There’s really no reason that I can see right now that would draw me elsewhere.”
