If there was any doubt that Stephen Curry would re-sign with the Golden State Warriors, he put that to bed during media day.  The sharpshooter made it clear that he intends to stay with the western conference champions.  With all these big contracts recently signed, it’s been pointed out over and over again that Curry’s contract was significantly less considering his talent, but that contract was signed long ago before the MVPs when his ankle was still fragile.  The Warriors have a chance now to make that up and there’s no doubt that they will.

“Yes. Yes,” Curry replied to questions about whether he’s optimistic about returning to the Warriors.

Asked whether he’ll consult with Kevin Durant on contract matters this season, Curry said, “Maybe, but I’m not going to let it distract me at all.”

“I want to be back here. I like playing here, and that’s it,” he said.

Curry said he hopes his contract status won’t be an ongoing storyline this season.

“I hope not because we’ll worry about that in the summer. My answer’s not going to be any different all year. So, keep asking me, I won’t have a different one,” he said.

Curry will earn more than $12 million this season, less than three of his teammates (Durant, $26.5 million; Klay Thompson, $16.6 million; Draymond Green, $15.3 million). The Warriors intend to make up some of that difference this summer. Depending on where the salary cap falls, Curry’s new deal could net him in excess of $30 million per season.  Most people assume Curry won’t leave but still you never know.  The other two most recent MVPs Durant and LeBron James left after their rookie extensions expired.  So although it’s almost guaranteed Curry will stay, don’t expect the free agency stories and rumors to stop.
