After averaging 25.3 points on 46.8% shooting from the field with 6.6 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals per contest over the 2016-17 season, Stephen Curry finalized a five-year, $201 million super-max contract with the Warriors at the start of the offseason.
Fast forward three years, Curry acknowledged there’s been “conversations” about another contract extension with the Golden State Warriors.
Following Golden State’s first practice at the 2020 preseason training camp, Curry said, “everything is on the table,” with a potential contract extension in Golden State.
We have conversations. Everything’s on the table right now. I know just in terms of everything I’ve talked about being a Warrior and what the future holds. Obviously, I’m fully committed on what that is. And understanding I’ve got to do what’s right for me and the team and then having those conversations. I feel blessed to be in a position where I can say that and truly believe it. It’s a matter of just letting things kind of play out the way that they should and that’s kind of where we’re at right now.
After getting drafted No. 7 overall by the Warriors in 2009, Curry has spent all 11 years of his NBA campaign wearing Golden State’s No. 30 kit. The five-time All-Star said it’s a “huge goal” to wear the same Golden State Warriors jersey for as long as he can in his career.
Wearing the same jersey for as long as I can, I think that’s a huge goal for sure. It’s an elite club of guys that you look at that have played with the same organization and been successful and achieved greatness in that respect. So that would be an awesome accomplishment — something that I’ve obviously spoken publicly about and am very committed to…

If Curry and the Warriors can agree to an extension before the season opener against the Brooklyn Nets on Dec. 22, the two-time Most Valuable Player can tack on three years to his deal worth up to $156 million, per Bobby Marks of ESPN.
An extension before the Dec. 21 deadline could lock Curry up in Golden State until he’s 37-years-old. If the Warriors don’t ink Curry to an extension in 2020, the Warriors will have the opportunity to work a deal with the sharpshooting point guard during the 2021 offseason.
