NBA Players getting contract extensions and getting PAID!

Here’s the recent players who received the extensions and money that they deserve, well some of us think so.

Taj Gibson – BULLS

Gibson received a contract extension worth four-years and $38 million, according to sources.

“I’m very happy that I’m going to remain a Bull for the long haul, the Bulls are like my second family and I’m excited to know that I’m going to continue to wear ‘Bulls’ across my chest.” 

The Bulls signed Gibson to his extension right before the deadline and hope the extra money will lead to extra production this season. With Derrick Rose out for an extended period of time, the 27-year-old will be counted on to do some more scoring so keep an eye on his progress early on.

Stephen Curry – WARRIORS

Curry signed a four-year / $44 million contract extension before Wednesday night’s season opener at Phoenix that will keep the point guard with the Warriors through the 2016-17 season. It was the final day Golden State could sign Curry to an extension or he would become a restricted free agent next summer.

“I just thought the deal was too good to pass up right now, obviously I’ve been through a lot of injuries the last year and a half with my ankle, but it’s back strong and ready to go.”   

Of course it was too good of a deal to pass up, nobody else was going to pay you that money because of that surgically repaired ankle.  I like Curry, but somebody has to keep it real around here; he missed 40 games last season…there were only 66 of them.

James Harden – ROCKETS

Houston acquired Harden on Saturday night in a trade with Oklahoma City and agreed Wednesday on a five-year / $80 million contract extension with him.

 

The reigning Sixth Man of the Year certainly looked worth it in the season opener. Harden had 37 points and 12 assists in a stirring debut for Houston.  I stated that he was an All-star and not a Superstar the day after he was traded, he might have the opportunity to prove me wrong.
