OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Stephen Curry, the seventh overall pick in last month's NBA draft, has signed with the Golden State Warriors.
The team did not release terms of the contract Wednesday, but Curry can be paid up to $2.71 million, which is 120 percent of the requirements of the NBA's rookie wage scale for the spot he was chosen.
The 21-year-old Curry left Davidson after three seasons. He led the nation in scoring with 28.6 points per game as a junior, and also averaged 4.4 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 2.53 steals in 34 games. Curry appeared in 104 games for the Wildcats, averaging 25.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.13 steals.
A 6-foot-3 guard, Curry will begin his professional career this week as a member of the Warriors
