Stephen Curry Says 2017 Free Agency ‘Isn’t Really Appealing’

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry can become an unrestricted free agent in 2017, but the reigning MVP isn’t really thinking about that right now, according to the Sporting News’ Jimmy Spencer.

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.
