Since coming to the NBA, Stephen Curry, who plays for the Warriors, has consistently ranked among the highest-paid players. Curry started with the Warriors in 2009 as the seventh overall pick in the draft and has since accumulated a huge fortune.
Between June 2016 and June 2017, Curry earned around $50 million from salary and endorsements. Between June 2017 and June 2018, he earned $76.9 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
In the summer of 2017, he signed the NBA’s first $200 million contract. The five-year deal guaranteed $201 million from the Warriors. He became the first player to earn more than $40 million per season.
Despite being the highest-paid NBA player in the last three seasons, he is nowhere near LeBron James in terms of net worth. He currently has a net worth of $160 million, and according to Marca, a significant portion of his net worth comes from sponsorship and endorsement agreements off the court.
In August 2021, he signed a contract extension worth 215 million dollars over four years and would earn 48 million dollars in 2022/23, continuing to rise until earning 59.6 million dollars in the final year of the contract in 2025/26, Marca stated.
Curry has endorsement partners such as Under Armour, Chase, Vivo, eHi, Nissan/Infiniti, Brita, Bubble and JBL and generates an estimated $42 million in off-court income.
According to Forbes, Under Armour, which pays Curry $20 million a year, launched Curry Brand in November 2020, hoping to challenge Nike’s Jordan Brand. In 2018, Sony Pictures announced a multi-year development and production deal with Curry that is expected to develop and produce film and television projects with a focus on family, faith, and sports themes.
Also, he inked an endorsement deal with Callaway in 2019 that included a seven-figure donation to launch a golf program at Howard University.
Curry recently announced a major endorsement deal with cryptocurrency platform FTX. The NBA player also has his own production company, Unanimous Media, which is behind the ABC reality competition series Holey Moley.
Curry was born Wardell Stephen Curry II on March 14, 1988, in Akron, Ohio. His father, Dell Curry, a successful NBA player, was the all-time leading scorer for the Charlotte Hornets. Curry attended Queensway Christian College and joined the basketball team, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
His professional NBA career started when he signed for the Golden State Warriors. Before that, he joined the Toronto 5-0, a team that played matches with other clubs across Ontario. He won the provincial championship with the Toronto 5-0.
After high school, Curry attended Davidson College and played for the Wildcats. In college, he became one of the NCAA’s highest scorers and also set new records for scoring three-pointers. In his second year, he won his first NCAA Tournament with the Wildcats.
The NBA star is married to Ayesha Alexander since 2011 and they have three children together. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Curry regularly plays in celebrity golf tournaments and has played alongside Barack Obama. He is also a fan of the English Premier League soccer club Chelsea F.C.
