The Golden State Warriors and guard Stephen Curry have agreed to terms on a four year, $44 million contract extension.
The deal, which calls for an $11 million annual salary, starts next season, the Contra Costa Times reported Wednesday.
Ankle problems have slowed Curry, a first-round draft pick in 2009. He has averaged 17.5 points per game in his three-year NBA career and shot 44.1 percent from 3-point range.
Curry tweeted his appreciation Wednesday, "Thanks to Joe Lacob & the Warriors; hopefully I can say that for the next 4 yrs. agreed on extension."
The Warriors faced a midnight Wednesday deadline to reach an agreement or Curry would have become a restricted free agent in July.
