Seth Curry signs on with Steph’s Warriors
Stephen Curry has become a rising star in the NBA with his performance last season, especially in the playoffs. The Warriors would do anything to cater to their star player, and did just that by signing his brother Seth to a non-guaranteed contract for training camp.
In his senior year at Duke, Seth Curry averaged 17.5 points per game and shot 44 percent from the three point line, which is what he is best at. At one point, Curry was a draft prospect due to his ability to shoot, but was never the star player at Duke and suffered from several leg injuries. Curry didn’t participate in pre-draft workouts because he had undergone surgery to repair a shin injury. He ended up going undrafted, and had yet to land with a team even though he had an offer from a team in Italy.
Even though Curry turned down the deal in Italy, NBC Sports believes that Curry was signed because teams need extra bodies in training camp, and he will end up overseas after he gets cut, which they considered a near certainty.
Curry is an undersized shooting guard at 6’3″ and his ability to create his own shot, and his defensive ability are both question marks. The Associated Press says it might be tough for Curry to make the Warriors out of training camp due to their roster being mostly set already, but playing in the NBA Developmental League is a viable option for Curry if his goal is to play in the NBA.
If Seth Curry makes the Warriors, he and Steph would become the eleventh set of brothers to play for the same team in NBA history. Ben and Tyler Hansbrough did so last season with the Pacers, and twins Marcus and Markieff Morris both played with the Suns in 2012-13.
