Curry will extend his contract off his $45.8 million salary for the 2021-22 campaign, meaning he is now guaranteed $261 million over the next five seasons.

The 33-year-old Curry won his second scoring title this past season after averaging 32 points per game. He was named first-team All-NBA for the fourth time in his career after his stellar 2020-21 season.

The Warriors selected Curry with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2009 draft out of Davidson. Entering his 13th NBA season, he has averaged 24.2 points, 6.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds over 762 career games (756 starts) with the Warriors.
