Seth Curry is a star in the making. He has established his potential as a shooting guard during his breakout season with the Sacramento Kings in this edition of the NBA. MVP Stephen Curry’s brother is now much more confident about his game and is looking forward to signing with a team which provides him with the opportunity to shoulder a bigger role.
Seth first impressed with his stellar show in the NBA’s summer league of 2015 at Las Vegas to earn a deal with the Sacramento Kings.
In the final seven games of the season with the Kings, junior Curry has shown what he is capable of. He averaged 16.4 points, 5.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds playing 32.4 minutes per game. Apart from posting such stand-out average, the former Duke shot 45.9% from the field, 48.9% from beyond the arc.
“I can only focus on the opportunities I have, and that was getting those minutes later in the season and just trying to play well,” Curry told USA TODAY Sports’ Sam Amick. ” I knew teams were gonna come in game-planning in different ways to stop me. It was a fun challenge to go out there and try to combat that and play against the best players in the world and gain even more confidence through that.”
Well, the numbers are still far behind the gaudy numbers posted by his elder brother Stephen Curry, but some experts feel that Seth’s performance reflected the same kind of desire which raised senior Curry to the highest level.
Seth Curry now wants to test the free agency water as a restricted free agent. He wants to gauge the market and more opportunities are expected to be there for the three-point shooting guards.
“I think basketball IQ, work ethic, competitiveness are probably the most important things in a basketball player,” Curry said. “That’s what Steph has in him and that’s what allowed him to get better. For me myself, I’ve been able to work with him for my entire life and watch his growth pattern in the NBA. I feel like I’ve made some jumps over my short little career here and I’m trying to continue to do that. I don’t think I’ve reached my peak by any means. It’s gonna be exciting for me to come in this summer and come back a better player next year.”
