When Stephen Curry’s current contract with the Golden State Warriors expires, the sharpshooter will have made $257,250,833 in NBA money, per Spotrac. Not bad for a guy who some pundits thought was going to be a bust in the league.
The Warriors selected Curry with the seventh overall pick in the 2009 draft out of Davidson. When that pick was made, no one saw the kind of success Steph has had in the NBA coming.
After getting drafted by the Warriors, Curry signed a standard four-year rookie contract with the Dubs. The sharpshooter averaged 17.5 points and 5.9 assists during his rookie season while making $2,710,560.
Stephen Curry made $2,913,840 in his second season, $2,508,901 in Year 3 and $3,958,742 in Year 4. The point guard then signed a four-year, $44 million contract extension before the start of the 2012-13 season. His extension kicked in during the 2013-14 campaign. Steph made $9,887,642 that season.
In the 2014-15 campaign, Curry not only won his first MVP award, but he also captured his first championship. Steph averaged 23.8 points and 7.7 assists while hitting 286 shots from beyond the arc during the regular season. He made $10,629,213 and was just beginning his dominance in the league.
During the 2015-16 season, Stephen Curry won the MVP award again, this time in unanimous fashion. While making $11,370,786, Steph averaged 30.1 points per game and hit a whopping 402 3s. He guided the Warriors to an NBA record 73 wins, but LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated Curry and the Dubs in the 2016 Finals in seven games.
In 2016-17, Curry made $12,112,359 and captured his second championship. The future Hall of Famer won his third ring in 2017-18 while making $34,682,550.
Steph signed a massive five-year, $201.2 million contract in the summer of 2017. It was the Designated Veteran Player Extension. During the 2018-19 campaign, Curry made $37,457,154. The greatest shooter in NBA history was set to make $40,231,758 this season before the campaign was suspended due to COVID-19.
Stephen Curry only played in five games for the Warriors before the 2019-20 season was put to a halt. The two-time MVP and three-time champion broke his left hand during the fourth game of the year.
Whenever the 2020-21 campaign starts, Curry will make $43,006,362. He becomes an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2022.
Stephen Curry has career averages of 23.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists with the Warriors. Whenever the NBA starts back up again, he should eventually pass Ray Allen for most 3-pointers in league history.
