Stephen Curry’s net worth is likely to continue its meteoric rise. In December 2015 he signed a new endorsement deal with Brita. The company is using Curry to promote its pitcher and bottle products with national television ads, digital marketing, in-store displays, social media, and public relations efforts.
In September 2015 Curry renegotiated his Under Armour deal, previously worth $4 million per year. His new contract with the company extends through the 2024 NBA season.
Curry was also given an undisclosed equity state in Under Armour. The company is now the second largest athletic apparel retailer in the world, behind only Nike.

Stephen Curry’s net worth has been padded by further deals with Degree, Express, State Farm and Muscle Milk. He also hawks JBL headphones.
Curry is only 7 seasons into his NBA career and with his dominance on the court he’s likely to sign more endorsement deals and earn an even bigger contract when his current deal expires.
