Curious who's set to make more than Curry?

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is scheduled to make roughly $12 million next NBA season. The two-time NBA MVP is slated to make considerably less than many of the free agents signing this offseason. Stats Information takes a look at the list of players who are tentatively scheduled to make more than Curry when their contracts become official Thursday.

To be fair, the cap is 60 percent higher than when Curry signed, and he will be a free agent next offseason and thus will be able to partake in these riches. Last season, he averaged 34 minutes and 30.1 points.

The list of players who will make more than Stephen Curry in 2016 is getting a little ridiculous:

Jordan Clarkson

2015-16 team: Lakers

2016-17 team: Lakers

Reported deal: four years, $50M

During his rookie season, Clarkson averaged 11.9 points. Last year he boosted that average to 15.5 points per game, second only behind Kobe Bryant on the Lakers.

Evan Turner

2015-16 team: Celtics

2016-17 team: Trail Blazers

Reported deal: four years, $70M

In what was his best season since 2013-14, Turner averaged 10.5 points and 4.9 rebounds with the Celtics in 2015-16.

Evan Fournier

2015-16 team: Magic

2016-17 team: Magic

Reported deal: five years, $85M

Fournier was considered a priority for the Magic after averaging 15.4 points with 2.8 rebounds this past season.

Jeremy Lin

2015-16 team: Hornets

2016-17 team: Nets

Reported deal: three years, $36M

Lin has had success in New York in the past, albeit with the Knicks, in 2011-12. He has become somewhat of a journeyman since then, averaging 11.5 points his last two seasons with the Lakers and Hornets after a stint in Houston.

Timofey Mozgov

2015-16 team: Cavaliers

2016-17 team: Lakers

Reported deal: four years, $65M

Mozgov scored 15 points in the playoffs last season. That’s fewer points than millions per year he will make.

Solomon Hill

2015-16 team: Pacers

2016-17 team: Pelicans

Reported deal: four years, $52M

The Pacers declined a $2.3M team option for Hill for 2016-17, which turned out to be very lucrative for the Arizona product. Hill parlayed a solid playoffs into this big deal after averaging only 4.2 points during the 2015-16 regular season.

Jeff Green

2015-16 team: Grizzlies/Clippers

2016-17 team: Magic

Reported deal: one year, $15M

Green played with both the Grizzlies and the Clippers last season, averaging 11.7 points and 4.2 rebounds. He’ll now be on his fifth NBA team, and fourth in the last three years alone.

Conley wins Day 1

While not a role player, Mike Conley’s NBA record five-year, $153 million contract means he will make more than twice as much as Curry next season. Conley is one of three players to sign a $100 million contract without ever making an NBA All-Star team … and all three signed those deals this offseason. To put this in perspective, Peyton Manning made approximately $135.7 million in base salary and $248.7 million in total cash during his entire NFL career.

The Warriors will be paying Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson a combined $44.1 million this season.

Combined, the Grizzlies will be paying Conley and Chandler Parsons — both agreed to deals Friday — $48.8 million next season.

Before this offseason vs. this offseason

Before this offseason, no NBA player had ever signed a $100 million contract without making an All-Star team.

This offseason, three players have agreed to such deals (Conley, Bradley Beal and Nicolas Batum).
