Probably right. Here's a look at what a few other 2 guards make:
DeMar DeRozan -- $9.5 mil
Rodney Stuckey -- $8.5 mil
OJ Mayo -- $8 mil
Marcus Thornton -- $8 mil
Monta Ellis -- $8 mil
Arron Afflalo -- $7.75
I would pick Klay over any of these guys. Maybe that's the homer in me, but I think he's a better player based on his lethal jumper coming off screens, he developed into one heck of a defender last year, and continues to improve his all-around game. I'm not sure how much higher we would go considering Curry will get paid between $10 - $12 mil per through the life of his deal. I guess Klay could command $10 mil per season.
I'd pick Klay over those guys too.
Remember...when Steph signed that deal, he had missed a lot of time with ankle issues and hadn't blossomed into the star that he is now. $10-$12M for Klay sounds about right.
