Stephen Curry will sign a long-term extension with the Golden State Warriors, a source with knowledge of the situation tells Opposing Views.
Teams have until 2 p.m. PT Wednesday to extend their class of 2009 players.
Curry has averaged 17.5 points and 5.8 assists over the course of his three years with the Warriors. Despite those impressive numbers, lingering questions about the 24-year-old’s health have made a lot of people wonder whether or not he is a safe investment at this point in his career. Mind you, this is a guy who has yet to play a full NBA season and missed 40 games in 2011-12.
A preseason injury that kept Curry out of action over the past 10 or so days only further complicated matters.
On Tuesday night, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote that the two sides (Curry’s reps and Warriors brass) hadn’t reached a resolution yet.
Opposing Views reached out to the Warriors in an effort to confirm this report but got no response.
Update: The deal has been confirmed. Stephen Curry and the Warriors agreed to a four-year, $44 million extension. We did in fact break the story before anyone else. Check the time stamp.
