The Golden State Warriors came away with the biggest free agent prize of the off-season, and they will have to do the same thing next year when Stephen Curry’s contract expires.
But rest assured the two-time MVP and 2017 free-agent-to-be said, as of right now, he anticipates re-signing with the only NBA team he has ever known.
“I want to be back here. I like playing here, and that’s it,” Curry told a news conference on Tuesday, via ESPN.
Curry is currently making $12million a year, far from being the highest-paid player on his own team, as Kevin Durant will more than double his salary this season.
Klay Thompson and Draymond Green also make more Curry.
At this point, though, the reigning unanimous MVP says he is focused on getting back to the NBA Finals and winning this season, not how much money he makes.
He is also hoping he will not be bombarded with questions about his future as often as Durant was last year.
“I hope not because we’ll worry about that in the summer,” Curry said.
“My answer’s not going to be any different all year. So, keep asking me, I won’t have a different one.”
