Steph Curry's net pay after taxes, escrow, agent fees

In July, Steph Curry signed a 5-year deal worth $201,158,790.

- 2017-18 = $34,682,500
- 2018-19 = $37,457,153
- 2019-20 = $40,231,758
- 2020-21 = 43,006,362
- 2021-22 = $45,780,966

On Tuesday, ESPN's Darren Rovell and Bobby Marks examined Curry's salary for this season.

When you factor in everything, the two-time MVP's net pay is...

$15,263,905.

Here's how Rovell and Marks arrived at that number:

- 2017-18 escrow (10 percent) = -$3,468,255
- Federal taxes = -$11,655,683
- City/state taxes = -$4,105,453
- Agent fees (3 percent) = -$954,597
- 401K (max allowed) = -$18,000
- 2016-17 escrow = +$605,618
- Shortfall = +$177,725 

Steph Curry pays a lot of money in taxes. 

Steph Curry makes a lot of money.

On Tuesday afternoon, Jordan Crawford was on Twitter.

When he saw the following tweet...

... Crawford quote tweeted it by saying:

"A 7ft 12 year old."

Within a matter of seconds, Crawford deleted the tweet.

This is funny, of course, because Durant recently deleted two tweets in which he said some not-so-nice things about the OKC franchise, Thunder players and head coach Billy Donovan.

Crawford appeared in 42 regular season games for the Warriors during the 2013-14 season, averaging 8.4 points per contest.

He scored 41 points in the season finale against the Nuggets.

After two years out of the league, Crawford averaged 14.1 points and 3.0 assists over 19 games with the Pelicans last season.
