NBA Free Agency

Free-agent guard Jrue Holiday has agreed to a five-year, $126 million deal to stay with the New Orleans Pelicans. The deal includes incentive clauses that could push the contract’s value to $150 million and contains a player option for the fifth year.

 

The Golden State Warriors and reserve guard Shaun Livingston agreed to terms. Sources said terms of the deal are three years and $24 million. It can’t be finalized until the end of the free-agent moratorium on July 7.

 

The Bulls and center Cristiano Felicio have agreed in principle to a four-year extension worth close to $32 million, a league source told ESPN. The 24-year-old Brazilian averaged 4.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.

 

Two-time MVP Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors agreed to a five-year deal worth more than $200 million, the richest in NBA history. Curry is the first NBA star who will sign a supermax contract, the crossing of a $200 million threshold that eventually will become the norm for the NBA’s biggest superstars.

 

The structure of the Nene contract with Houston is three-years, $10.9 million, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks. Houston is not permitted to give Nene a four-year contract because of the Over 38 rule. The fourth season would have extended past his 38th birthday.
