Stephen Curry won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

The Golden State Warriors and the two-time NBA Champion reportedly agreed on a massive five-year deal worth more than $200 million.

The move comes after the team won the NBA championship and new teammate Kevin Durant was named Finals MVP.

Here’s what team owner Joe Lacob said via The Bay Area News Group:

“We’re going to do whatever it takes to keep Steph here and happy,” Lacob told Tim Kawakami of Bay Area News Group when asked if the Warriors will offer Curry the maximum $205 million over five years this summer. “And I know he wants to be here and we want him here. So, I do not anticipate any issues with him staying.” 

Curry, the NBA’s first-ever unanimous MVP and now the NBA’s highest-paid player of all-time, passing up Memphis Grizzlies’ star Mike Conley.

Nothing is official as of yet, but it certainly sounds like Curry is finally going to get paid by the Warriors and in historic fashion.
