^That’s SETH not to be confused with STEPH ( Don’t worry GSW fans, you have Steph locked up until 2017). Seth Curry is the journey-man younger brother of Steph who’s played in 4 career NBA games with 3 different teams over the past 2 seasons (most recently with Phoenix). He’s spent the majority of his first 2 professional years in the D-League with Santa Cruz and Erie where he’s torn it up appearing in the D-League All-Star game both seasons. Last year in Erie he averaged 24 points, 4 assists, 4 rebounds, 1.5 steals and shot 47% from three in 43 games.
I’ve never been an avid fan of Seth until I really got to see him play on a consistent basis in this past Summer League (for New Orleans) where he was practically running the show. In 6 games he averaged over 24 points (to lead all players), 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals. The kid’s performed well at every level he’s played at and at 24 I think he’s finally ready to step into the shoes of dad and brother and be an everyday guard in the NBA.
This evening, Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news that Seth has signed a 2 year, $2 million contract with the Sacramento Kings where he’ll play 90 minutes away from his big brother, Steph. The signing will make Seth the 8th guard on the Kings roster. However, I think this guard is here to stay if he continues where he left off in Vegas (hopefully what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas won’t apply). Forget Rondo & Cauley-Stein, I really think Seth could be low-key, vital, signing for Sacramento and I think this team is now a legit playoff contender.
