Houston tends to overpay, methinks.
Curry's downside is the ankle, which precludes any huge contract offers. The two are tied together, and separate from his ability on the court.
OKC offered Harden 4 yrs and 55 million while he wanted 4 yrs and 60 million. For some reason they couldnt offer him a 5 yr deal so 4 yrs and 60 mill was the max they could offer and they came within 5 mill of that.
