Stephen Curry reportedly agrees to the richest contract in NBA history, $201 million

Stephen Curry is no longer the 82nd highest-paid player in the NBA.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Curry has agreed to a new contract that will pay him $US201 million over the next five seasons.

That deal is contingent on what the 2017-18 salary cap will be set at, as Curry is eligible for a salary the upcoming season of 35% of the cap with 8% annual raises thereafter.

According to Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post, the cap is going to be set at $US99.093 million. If so, Curry’s contract could reach $US203.5 million. If he does come up short of that, it could be an indication that he left a few million on the table in an effort to retain all of the Warriors’ free agents, including Andre Iguodala.
