#Dubs Gameday baby. And thanks to Joe Lacob & the Warriors hopefully I can say that for the next 4 yrs. agreed on extension— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) October 31, 2012
According to Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson, the four-year deal is worth $44 million.
Curry is entering his fourth NBA season in 2012-13. He missed 40 games last season because of ankle injuries and tweaked his ankle again during this preseason. Clearly the Warriors front office and second-year head coach Mark Jackson have enough faith in the up-and-coming star to sign him to an extension.
As long as Curry's ankles can hold up, he will continue to be the man in the Bay Area. In his three seasons in the league, the 24-year-old has averaged 17.5 points, 5.8 assists and 1.7 steals per game.
Who is the bigger winner?
Although he only played in 26 games for Golden State last season, he shot an incredible 49 percent from the field and 45.5 percent from beyond the arc in those contests.
One has to believe that the Warriors franchise is the biggest winner in this deal. It locked up an extremely talented asset in Curry and did so at a reasonable cost of $11 million per year.
