There was never any doubt of Curry and Kevin Durant re-signing with the Warriors. Curry’s deal is the first to drop, while Durant is expected to wait as they go deep into the luxury tax.

Curry’s deal came just minutes after Livingston signed his new extension. For these two players, the Warriors have spent $225 million.

Curry has underpaid for much of his career, especially over the past three seasons and two of those seasons were MVP seasons. Now, he’s the highest-paid player in sports history.

While Durant is expected to leave some money on the table, Curry did not do that. He took all the money — and he did not receive a player option in the deal.

Curry averaged 25.3 points per game in 79 starts this past season. He also averaged 4.5 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.2 blocks.

Curry has spent the past eight-years with the Warriors.
