NBA Rumors: Will Warriors PG Stephen Curry Get a Contract Extension in October?

Stephen Curry is no doubt the face of the Golden State Warriors franchise. The sharp-shooting point guard, however, has dealt with injuries for the past two seasons, which has kept him from helping The Warriors making a run for the playoffs that they have long been destining for.

As the face of the team still, but injury issues still intact, will Curry get an extension with the Warriors by the October 31 deadline or will they let him slide as restricted free agent for next summer?

“I’ve talked to Bob (Meyers, Warriors GM),” Curry told Scott-Howard Cooper of NBA.com. “He’s expressed that they want me as a part of the future. Obviously it’s a business decision, an investment, and they have to protect themselves as well. I don’t know what that’ll mean and exactly what they’ll offer. But hopefully they see how hard I’ve been working in the summer to get back and that I have a different optimism than I’ve had going into each year. I’m ready to go.

“They’ve seen me work out a little bit now. Knowing that we went into the ankle in April and saw there was no structural damage, no red flags that say, ‘Hey, he’s not going to be the same player ever again’ — all those things kind of add up to me being a good investment piece for the future.”

Curry has been in rehab still and is recovering. I think the best idea is to play the season out and see how Curry does. Because what if they give him the contract extension before the deadline, but then he gets hurt again? That's going to be a big problem.

It's the best idea to wait, considering that he hasn't had the chance to gel with his new teammates all that much in Klay Thompson and Andrew Bogut. What if he doesn't fit so good in the system?

We'll see what happens, but I think it's smart if GSW just waits. They'll know what he's really worth by the end of the year.
