LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Stephen Curry has agreed to a record five-year, US$201 million (S$276.58 million) "super-max" deal to stay at the Golden State Warriors, according to several reports on Friday.

The deal came immediately after the National Basketball Association's (NBA) free agency period began and was done under the league's designated veteran player extension.

Under the new designation, which was added to the current collective bargaining agreement, Curry was eligible for the lucrative deal since he won at least one Most Valuable Player (MVP) award in the last three seasons.

The 29-year-old has claimed the MVP honour in two of the last three seasons while helping the Warriors to two NBA titles.
