Kings Sign Seth Curry

7:41pm: The signing is official, Sacramento announced.

WEDNESDAY, 7:50am: The deal is for the minimum, according to Sam Amick of USA Today (Twitter link). That makes it worth $1,962,972, slightly less than $2MM, and more importantly, it means Sacramento doesn’t have to use its room exception on him, as former Nets executive Bobby Marks surmised (Twitter link).

TUESDAY, 7:40pm: The Kings have reached an agreement with unrestricted free agent Seth Curry, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. It is going to be a two-year, $2MM pact, Wojnarowski adds.  Both years will be fully guaranteed, and the second year is a player option, Wojnarowski tweets. ESPN’s Marc Stein first reported (on Twitter) that the two sides were nearing a deal.

The 24-year-old has spent most of his time in the NBA D-League, and has inked 10-day contracts with the Cavs, Grizzlies, and Suns over the past two seasons. Curry has only appeared in a total of four NBA contests, and his averages are 0.8 points, 0.8 rebounds, and 0.3 assists in 5.3 minutes per contest.

The Pelicans were rumored to be close to giving a guaranteed deal to Curry, who played extremely well in the Las Vegas Summer League. Curry played for New Orleans’ squad in Vegas, averaging 24.3 points per contest on 45.9% shooting.

    Kings fans, after watching him in summer league, do you think he can be a contributor? Is he worth guaranteed money?

      Possibly, but Curry has to earn a spot in the rotation, something he hasn’t been able to do in past NBA auditions.

    It’s about time. Now all he needs is playing time to show what he can do.
