NBA rumors were now circulating the Sacramento Kings guard Seth Curry, who was reportedly not contented with his playing time in the team and decided to play for another franchise next season.
After a two-year contract with the Kings, Seth Curry decided to become a restricted free agent after declining $1 million player option for the 2016-17 season, according to Sham Charania of The Vertical.
In 44 game appearances with the Kings, Seth Curry, younger brother of the reigning MVP Steph Curry, was averaging 6.8 points, 1.5 assists and 0.5 steals while shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 45.0.
According to a report at CBS Sports, Curry was still getting DNP-CDs even in less than a month in the season where the Sacramento Kings failed to reach the playoffs. Curry seemed to be disappointed with how he was treated and wanted to have a longer playing time.
After deciding to become a restricted free agent, Seth curry has now the option to sign for another teams. However, if the Sacramento Kings wanted to re-sign Curry, all they need is to match the offer of the other teams interested with Curry.
Seth Curry became the back up point guard for the Sacramento Kings star Rajon Rondo but he preferred to play in the shooting guard position like his brother Stephen Curry. Rondo will also become an unrestricted free agent in the off-season so there might be a chance that if Rondo will not be re-signed by the Kings, Curry will be on the starting line up.
The Sacramento Kings’ plan had not yet been detailed yet, but for sure many teams will show interest in getting Seth Curry’s service in his upcoming free agency.
