But neither side needed that lengthy.
#Dubs Gameday baby. And because of Joe Lacob & the Warriors hopefully I’m able to state that for the following 4 yrs. decided on extension

Multiple sources are showing the Warriors and Curry have arrived at agreement on the four-year deal. At this time, the precise quantity of the offer isn’t known, but it’s likely to be under anything which was signed by Colorado point guard Ty Lawson – for 4 years and $48 million.
The offer is perfect for 4 years, $44 million, based on the Connected Press.
Late within the summer time, Curry and the agent, Lance Youthful, and Warriors gm Bob Myers decided to table talks of the extension before the preseason games were complete — March. 23.
Curry continued to be positive the 2009 week.
&ldquoMy agent, Bob and (owner) Joe (Lacob) have spoken a great deal during the last day or two concerning the situation,&rdquo Curry stated. &ldquoI’m focused getting reps, being prepared for the growing season. Once my agent thinks there’s a deal or its prepared to come to a decision, he’ll take it in my experience. But we’ve not become there yet. I’m not sure if it will likely be a deadline-driven factor, but we have still reached wait.&rdquo
The reasoning behind waiting before the preseason games were over was that individuals games will give each side an opportunity to measure the status of Curry’s right ankle. Curry skipped 40 of 66 games last season due to a recurring ankle problems.
Curry performed four preseason games after which folded his ankle in the fifth game against Tigard. Curry stated he might have came back to the overall game, but coach Mark Jackson told him no.
Curry sitting the team’s final two preseason games like a precaution, based on Jackson.
So, while Curry will begin Wednesday evening from the Suns, there don’t appear to become any guarantees next. Which uncertainty is probably why the Warriors are unwilling to give Curry a large-money, lengthy-term contract.
For Curry, if he puts together a complete and productive season this year-13, he stands to earn much more money than if he’d sign an agreement at this time.
Colorado point guard Ty Lawson signed a four-year, $48 million extension on Tuesday. You may think Lawson is preferable to Curry or you will think he’s worse, but Lawson is unquestionably comparable.
Which may well be a little to high a cost for Curry, coming off injuries.
James Harden is anticipated to sign a max contract in Houston, only after he unsuccessful to achieve a contract using the Oklahoma City Thunder and was exchanged.
But Tyreke Evans, Jrue Holiday, Brandon Jennings and DeMar DeRozan aren’t likely to receive extensions, based on various reviews.
&ldquoIt’s a large deal,&rdquo Curry stated. &ldquoI’m fortunate to stay in it where we are in a position to have these talks. Very little draft men from my class have been in it. It is a privilege then one I do not take gently – to have the ability to secure a few more years at Golden State would certainly mean a great deal.
&ldquoBut clearly you saw using the Harden deal that many things can emerge from nowhere and also you never fully realize what is going to happen. That virtually increased the amount of a company it’s and you’ve got to consider proper care of yours. We’ll see what goes on.&rdquo
