Despite being a two-time MVP and one of the best players in the league, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry hasn't been paid like it.
In the final season of a four-year, $44 million extension he signed with the Warriors in 2012, Curry made just $12,112,359 last year, which, salary-wise, put him in the bottom half of the starting point guards in the league. In fact, here are the 16 players at the position that made more than Curry this past season - and some of the names will shock you.
Jordan Clarkson - $12,500,000
Brandon Knight - $12,606,250
Ricky Rubio - $13,400,000
Rajon Rondo - $14,000,000
Eric Bledsoe - $14,000,000
Tony Parker - $14,445,313
Deron Williams - $14,885,520
Reggie Jackson - $14,956,522
John Wall - $15,756,438
Goran Dragic - $15,891,725
Kyrie Irving - $17,638,063
Derrick Rose - $21,323,252
Chris Paul - $22,868,827
Damian Lillard - $24,328,425
Russell Westbrook - $26,540,100
Mike Conley Jr. - $26,540,100
Overall, Curry ranked 82nd in the league in salary (right behind Serge Ibaka and Marvin Williams), making him the best bargain in sports. That deal is what gave the Warriors enough cap space to sign Kevin Durant this offseason - but it's about to be over.
The Warriors plan to offer Curry a five-year max contract for $205 million this offseason, and owner Joe Lacob said that re-signing him is the top priority of their offseason.
Curry averaged 25.3 points, 6.6 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game this season.
