When the free agency period began, the Golden State Warriors wasted little time in agreeing to a record-setting five-year, $201 million deal with point guard Stephen Curry, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.  

Curry is set to make $34.5 million next season and will earn more than $40 million over the last two years of the deal. 

It had been long speculated that the Warriors were going to offer Curry the super max contract, especially following a second NBA title in the last three seasons. He had hinted about it on several occasions that he was eyeing a mega deal this offseason. 

Curry has developed into one of the elite players in the league over the last four seasons, earning a pair of MVP awards, four All-Star selections, two All-NBA First Team nods, and two All-NBA Second Team selections in the process.

With Curry now in place, it now allows for the Warriors to shift their focus on their other players in free agency.
