Joe Lacob considered offering Stephen Curry a contract in the 2017 offseason below his full max of $201 million over five seasons.

Curry was coming off a four-year, $44 million extension in 2012 that became one of the best bargains in NBA history as he went on to win two MVPs.

Bob Myers kept Lacob from actually bringing a below max offer to Curry in free agency.

According to Myers, Curry laughed when he saw the contract numbers presented to him due to how absurd they are with $45 million in the final season of the deal.
