Seth Curry
SG - 6’2, 185lbs - 27 years old - 5 years of experience

Unfortunately, Curry missed the season due to a stress fracture in his leg. This in turn lost the momentum he had coming into the season after a career-best campaign in 2016/17.

In that campaign, Curry sought to throw off the only-a-shooter label that had been carried around with him in his career to date. It is still true to say that the jump shot is the only obvious plus-NBA skill he brings to the table, which is fine considering it is arguably the most important one a 6’2 guard can bring. Nevertheless, in 2016/17, Curry showed a bit more than that.

He showed he can defend adequately. Even if small and not exerting a huge amount of ball pressure, Curry took a fair amount of charges, showed quick hands and played the passing lanes well, making an impact on the end it was assumed that he never would. He also took on more of a responsibility as a ball handler, and while he does not have the dynamism, flair and ability to penetrate and kick like J.J. Barea does, he was at least stable in the role.

How does all this bode well for the future? Hard to tell. The injury should heal with no repercussions, yet Curry now enters his prime years without a contract or any sort of free agency momentum. Either way, though, as much as Dallas are (or should) be planning talent upgrades and need to move away from the plethora of small guards, they should explore the idea of bringing Curry back. He looked good there for a while.

Player Plan: Entering unrestricted free agency. A good second half in 2016/17 followed by a total absence of 2017/18 makes it hard to gauge what would be a fair price. $5 million, maybe?

Seth Curry
PG/SG, 6’2, 185lbs, 26 years old, 4 years of experience

Very one dimensional, but it’s quite the dimension. In far bigger minutes and on far bigger volume than ever before, Curry shot 42.5% from three, and 48.1% overall, Tries on defence, gives up a fair few, but is al-ways going to earn them back when shooting that well and has made himself into an NBA rotation player. And, for at least 12 more months, a Maverick.

Player Plan: One year at $3,028,410 remaining, which represents very good value. It will get expensive after that, however.

Seth Curry - Steph's brother had multiple NBA looks last season, including one game each with both the Grizzlies and the Cavaliers. Reportedly, he turned down the contract Scotty Hopson later mistakenly received - either Cleveland didn't offer him the same deal that Hopson eventually got and that information was wrong, or Curry made a grave error. Between NBA contracts, Curry spent the season with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the D-League and averaged 20.4 points and 5.7 assists in 45 games, shooting 37.8% from three point range. He certainly plays like big bro. But he has not that talent level. Given the opportunity in the D-League to show he was more than just the shooter he had been at Duke, Curry did so, but he still nevertheless showed he was mostly just a shooter. And at his height, he's going to have to be an even better one to make it.

Memphis - James Johnson and Seth Curry: Johnson has been Memphis's best small forward in his short spell with them thus far this season, and while this is an indictment of his competition, he has also been a genuine breath of fresh air. Curry, meanwhile, has yet to play since his midseason call-up, and although he was in the midst of proving he was an NBA calibre point guard during his short D-League stay, there is a good chance he is waived to save money, albeit potentially subsequently re-signed.

Seth Curry - Stephen's brother was an unpopular cut by the Golden State Warriors at the end of camp, and joined their namesake D-League affiliate Santa Cruz Warriors immediately afterwards. Needing to prove he is more than an off-ball scorer, Curry is off to a strong start, averaging 19.8 points and 7.7 assists.
