How Steph Curry’s net worth was built
Steph Curry is a two-time NBA champion and two-time league MVP, but he hasn’t always been considered a superstar. After not being heavily recruited by top college programs, Curry chose to attend Davidson College in North Carolina. There, he thrived and gained attention as an offensive juggernaut.
In 2009, the Golden State Warriors drafted Curry with the seventh pick in the first round. He had a successful rookie year, but then suffered injuries in 2011 and 2012. Both required surgery.
Although many considered Curry a risk because of the injuries, the Warriors signed him to a four-year, $44 million contract. And in the 2014-2015 season, he led the team to an NBA championship.
He won his second championship in the 2016-2017 season. In the offseason, Curry and the Warriors agreed to a five-year, $201 million contract extension, which was the league’s richest contract at the time.
In 2017, Curry will earn a whopping $35 million from endorsement deals with companies such as Under Armour, Brita, and JPMorgan Chase, according to Forbes. His net worth as of October 2017 is $60 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
