A source tells Jason Lloyd of The Akron Beach Journal that the Cavs will not re-sign Seth Curry to a second 10-day contract (Twitter link). The rookie point guard’s current 10-day deal with Cleveland expires today, and he will again become a free agent. Curry only appeared in one game for the Cavs, racking up 3 points, 2 steals, and 1 rebound in 9 minutes of action.
Curry’s only other time in the NBA this season came on a non-guaranteed contract with the Grizzlies, which Memphis eventually waived. Curry only saw the floor once in Memphis as well. The younger brother of Warriors star Steph Curry has averaged 19.4 points and 5.9 assists per game in the D-League while trying to earn his way into the NBA.
The Octagon Sports client will look to catch on with another team and prove his worth. The Cavs appeared to be a better opportunity for Curry to play considering their dwindling playoff hopes and an injury to starting poing guard Kyrie Irving, but the team has hung around in the playoff race behind strong play from both Dion Waiters and Jarrett Jack at the point. Coach Mike Brown said he felt no obligation to offer minutes to young players in need of development, which proved true in the case of Curry.
