Curry talked about the prospects of possibly becoming a free agent, and he sure doesn’t sound like a guy who plans on leaving the Warriors:
“As I am thinking right now, free agency isn’t really appealing to me because I love where I’m at, love the organization I’m playing for, and the Bay Area is home for me and my family,” Curry said.
Curry could sign an extension before becoming a free agent, but even if that doesn’t happen, there’s little reason to believe he’ll leave the Bay Area. The Warriors are in a great position for a long time coming, and the 27-year-old can get the most money from Golden State. He also is raising a family with several young children, and he’s said they love where they are.
Whenever Curry’s next contract comes, it’s going to be a huge raise over what he’s currently making. Ankle issues early in his career kept his first extension down a bit at four years, $44 million, and he’s only due about $23 million over the next two years. Barring injury, his new deal will likely pay him around $30 million a year with the cap going up.
