Seth Curry lasted less than two weeks on the Grizzlies’ roster after being signed in December, his non-guaranteed contract having been waived before yesterday’s guarantee deadline. While Memphis had been considering bringing Curry back on a 10-day contract, the team has opted to pass for now, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, who says Curry will rejoin the D-League’s Santa Cruz Warriors (Twitter link).
Curry, the younger brother of Stephen Curry, appeared briefly in just one game for the Grizzlies, but put up excellent numbers for Santa Cruz earlier this season, averaging 21.3 PPG and 7.8 APG in 12 contests. While Golden State’s affiliate holds his D-League rights, Curry remains free to sign with any NBA team that offers him a deal, and I expect it won’t be long before another club takes a 10-day flier on the 23-year-old.
As for the Grizzlies, it sounds like they were seriously considering bringing Curry back after releasing him over the weekend. Wojnarowski tweets that the club had Curry wait in town for three days after cutting him, only to eventually inform him that he wouldn’t be re-signed. As our updated list of roster counts shows, the Grizzlies have one open spot on their roster.
