Steph Curry is eligible for a contract extension in the offseason and Warriors owner Joe Lacob says he’s willing to do “whatever it takes” to ensure the two-time MVP will remain in the Bay Area.
Bay Area News Group asked Lacob if he will make a max $205-million offer to the two-time NBA MVP.
“We’re going to do whatever it takes to keep Steph here and happy,” Lacob said via ESPN. “And I know he wants to be here and we want him here. So, I do not anticipate any issues with him staying.”
Lacob’s confidence in retaining Curry seems warranted, as Curry indicated during the season that he can’t see himself playing for another team.
NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant can opt out of his contract this summer to negotiate a new deal. Sources have told ESPN that Durant is willing to take less than the maximum contract extension he is eligible for as a 10-year veteran if it helps the Warriors keep the core of their team intact.
Curry averaged 25.3 points per game in the regular season and improved that to 28.1 points per game in the playoffs to help the Warriors win their second championship in three seasons.
