The 2017 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors have re-signed free agents Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, Zaza Pachulia and David West to contracts, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the agreements were not released. Curry, 29, averaged a team-high 25.3 points per game (10th in the NBA) in 2016-17 to go with 6.6 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.81 steals (seventh) in 33.4 minutes over 79 games, earning All-NBA Second Team honors. The two-time MVP led the league in three-point field goals for a fifth consecutive year, following his NBA-record 402 threes in 2015-16 with 316 triples in 2016-17, including an NBA single-game record 13 threes on Nov. 7 vs. New Orleans. Curry upped his averages to 28.1 points, 6.7 assists and 6.2 rebounds in 35.4 minutes over 17 games in the 2017 postseason, helping Golden State capture its second title in three seasons. In eight career seasons with the Warriors, Curry owns averages of 22.8 points, 6.8 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.79 steals and is the franchise’s all-time leader in three-point field goals (1,917, 10th in NBA history).
Durant is expected to opt out of this contract next summer, and will likely sign another one-plus-one deal before eventually landing a long-term maximum salary deal with full Bird rights in the summer of 2019. After coming to terms with point guard Steph Curry on a five-year, $201 million maximum salary deal on Saturday, the Warriors are still expected to re-sign center Zaza Pachulia and also hope to land free agent Nick Young.
Storyline: Nick Young Free Agency
JJ Redick: It’s funny because I’ve gotten now used to, when I shoot the ball, and somebody comes underneath me, I’ll actually spread my legs out so they don’t hit me. It’s an unnatural motion and referees sometimes don’t give me the call but I tell them ‘If I don’t spread my legs out, I’m going to sprain my ankle’. So you have to somehow figure a way out to protect yourself. Sometimes if it’s late, like I thought the Zaza slide underneath was a little late, there’s nothing you can really do.
