Steph Curry will no longer be the NBA's most underpaid superstar.
The two-time NBA MVP is set to sign a five-year, $201 million super-max deal with the Warriors. Free agency begins at 9:01 p.m. PT Friday night.
Curry is an unrestricted free agent with his four-year $44 million deal ending.
With his new deal, Curry would become the first NBA player with an average annual salary of over $40 million.
Marc Stein of ESPN was first to report the news.
