The Warriors and Stephen Curry will soon be agreeing to a four-year, $215 million extension with the Warriors, according to longtime NBA reporter Marc Stein.
Curry and the Warriors discussed an extension prior to this season, though general manager Bob Myers told The Athletic's Tim Kawakami that the two sides tabled talks following Klay Thompson's injury and agreed to pick up conversations after the 2021 season.
Per Stein, the two sides are planning on reaching an agreement this summer.
Curry, 33, most recently signed a five-year, $201 million contract with the Warriors during the 2017 offseason. He previously also had signed a came a four-year, $44 million extension in 2012.
The seven-time All-Star guard led the NBA in scoring last year, finishing the season averaging 32 points per game on 48.2% shooting from the field. Throughout his career, Curry has won two MVPs, two scoring titles, made seven All-NBA team appearances and taken home three championships.
Reports of a possible Curry extension also come as the Warriors are linked to a number of veteran free agents, including Andre Iguodala and Nic Batum.
NBA free agency begins at 6 p.m. ET on Monday.
