08:09 AM ET 08.23 | Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has his sights set on an October return, and, by all indications, he's on target in recovering from ankle issues that forced him to miss 40 games in 2011-12. He's been rehabbing all summer, and it looks as though he'll be 100 percent by the start of training camp in early October. ... Assuming you're looking at a four-year deal, what do you offer him? Is four years, $32 million a reasonable offer for Curry under the circumstances? How about four years, $28 million? Too low, you say ... how about four years in the $36 million to $40 million range? New Orleans guard Eric Gordon signed a four-year, $60 million deal, and so did Brooklyn center Brook Lopez.

Curry should get somewhere in the range of 4 years, 36-40 mil. But, there will be someone out there willing to give him a deal like Gordon's.

I wouldnt give this guy more than a 4 year 32 million...He has not proven anything yet. Yes he can shoot and yes he can score but he also stays hurt and has not lead his team to even a sniff of the playoffs. I think 8 mill a year is sufficient

Is he really worrying about what he should be making when free agency comes around? Should worry more about being healthy and playing all the games.

The article didnt say he was worried about it..this is more from the POV of mgmt and how they should deal with Steph. I say play it like J.Lin, let the market dictate and if the offer is too high, let him walk. Gotta stay healthy first before you get paid...oh wait, Eric Gordon?

Both brook and gordons deals were too high-Why the F would you even offer him anything now?he's held together with duct tape and spit below his kneesplay the year out and see if his ankles hold upor if he's healthy- then mid way through or 3/4 throughTHEN offer him 4 for 30 and see if he bites-if not- let him hit RFA and see what his worth is-

Yeah bc if he stays healthy this one season then a team could give him a 4 year 60 million dollar deal.....

Needless to say, I like Curry. I don't believe he is injury prone or fragile, but instead the product of a botched surgery and too early return. However I think the smart move would be the wait and see approach, but nobody has ever accused the Warriors of being smart.

You didn't like Curry or Lopez from day 1. If it were left up to you, he'd be in the D League. It's not like we're talking Greg Oden. The guy has had one injury that wasn't allowed time to heal properly. Curry averages 17.5 points, 5.8 assists and 4.1 rebounds. He shoots 49% from the field and 45% from three-point range. He deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Oh....and as for benefit of doubt....Remember, we are talking about a major investment from your warriors on a guy with significant ankle issues.....he may be better, but may be worse....you guys can't effort to carry a broken player going forwards.I actually would think about letting him play, then trying to trade him mid seasonThe risk here (for your team) > reward

Puhleeze. The guy has had [b]1[b] freakin' injury. I don't think I'd call that 'broken.' And comparing him to Austin Rivers is ludicrous. It just exposes you as a hater.
