Mavericks Finalize Contract With Seth Curry

JULY 15: The Mavericks have officially signed Curry, the team confirmed today in a press release.

JULY 4: The Mavericks are nearing a two-year, $6MM agreement with free agent guard Seth Curry, league sources informed Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical (Twitter link).  The 6’2” combo guard played in 44 games with the Kings last season, including nine starts, and averaged 6.8 points in 15.7 minutes. He shot 45% on his 3-point tries.

Stephen Curry‘s brother appeared in just four NBA games with three different teams prior to his breakthrough season with Sacramento. The 6’2” shooting guard had his qualifying offer of approximately $1.2MM rescinded by the Kings on Sunday. He made $947,276 during 2015/16.

The Kings considered Curry expendable after they agreed to terms with free agent guard Garrett Temple. Curry hit the free agent market after declining his player option of $1MM for next season. That decision has apparently paid off with Dallas offering a bigger salary and an additional year.

Dallas already had a busy Monday, with the Warriors declining to match its four-year, $94MM offer sheet for restricted small forward Harrison Barnes. Golden State also agreed to trade starting center Andrew Bogut to the Mavericks.

While Curry can play the point, it’s more likely he’ll back up Wesley Matthews at shooting guard.

WOW! Not gonna lie, this shocked me a bit. Not only that they got him, but at that price. Absolute highway robbery, in my opinion, under this cap. Amazingly, Dallas has turned all the complaints about what they’ve been doing into a pretty competitive team…. Deron Williams, Wes Matthews, Harrison Barnes, Dirk, and Bogut…Justin Anderson, Seth Curry (Either of those last 2 could potentially start if Dirk would consider coming off the bench), Devin Harris, Dwight Powell, JJ Barea off the bench, so far….They still needed another 2 guard after they got Barnes and they found him in Seth Curry.… Read more »

Exactly, there’s zero difference between 2nd and 8th when each and every one will have to go through Golden State.

Good deal. Now sign Gerald Green and Jason Thompson and you can run out the exact same starting 5 as this years Warriors team….

Curry/Barnes/Bogut/Green/Thompson

Another Curry, great deal money wise. That’s how Step stated out $$$ and then BAM. Could this be the coming of a Deja Vu ?

No. Seth has never come close to his brother. Stephen was an amazing college player and his “blossoming” was due to injury. If he had been healthy he would of been this good years ago. Seth on the other hand has been healthy and just isn’t the same player.
