Draymond Green shares a picture of Steph Curry on Instagram and captions it with, “200 mo on that a**,” referring to his contract extension.
The 2021 NBA free agency brought about a plethora moves from players that aren’t particularly superstars, but could help contenders shift the tide in their favor. Steph Curry on the other hand, seems to be locked in with the Golden State Warriors as he inked a new contract extension with the Dubs over 4 years, worth $215 million.
Back in the 2017-18 season, Steph Curry had signed onto being a Warrior with a massive, 5 year/$201 million deal that would’ve made him an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2022. However, similar to how Giannis Antetokounmpo signed an extension with the Bucks a year before becoming a UFA, Curry has done the same.
This new contract of Steph’s keeps him in Golden State till the 2026 offseason. By that time, the 3x champ will have been 38 years old.
Draymond Green is hyped about Steph Curry and his new contract.
Despite being continents apart due to his presence on Team USA for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Draymond Green found a way to congratulate his long-time Warriors teammate, Steph Curry, on yet another contract worth $200 million+.
Green took to his Instagram story to share a hilarious picture of Curry’s face and captioned it with, “200 mo on that a**!” to which Steph reposted and said, “Let’s get it my brother.”

Draymond congratulating Steph Curry on this new contract helps NBA fans ponder over how much money the 2x MVP is actually earning per year. On average, Curry will be earning around $54 million a year. In reality however, the contract is back-loaded, so, he will actually be earning $49 million next season and a whopping $59 million in the 2025-26 season.
It’s safe to say that the Warriors are locked into wanting win another championship with their core trio and with Steph eating up as much cap space as he is, signing big name free agents like Bradley Beal is only going to get tougher as the seasons go by.
