The Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry have agreed on a 5-year $201M super max contract according to ESPN. This does not come as a surprise as a 2x MVP and reigning NBA champion. For Curry, he finally gets paid like a true superstar.

Curry signed a 4-year extension worth $44 Million in 2012, and played on the league’s most affordable contract. Now, Curry becomes the first player to sign the new NBA super max deal aka the Designated Player Veteran (DPV) Exception. This allows for teams to retain their All-Star caliber talent and prevent super teams.

The Warriors also have reached a 3-year, $24M contract with G Shaun Livingston sources tell ESPN. This is a very reasonable deal for Livingston who could get more money elsewhere. With Kevin Durant unsigned and Andre Iguodala fielding offers, Warriors fans should at least feel  optimistic about getting the band back together.
