Seth Curry To Decline Player Option

Seth Curry intends to decline his player option worth $1,015,696 for 2016/17 and will become a restricted free agent this summer, reports Shams Charania of The Vertical. Curry has until this Saturday to finalize his decision, Charania adds. The player inked a two-year pact with Sacramento last July.

Curry, 25, averaged 6.8 points, 1.5 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 44 games for Sacramento this season, finally establishing himself as a rotation player in the league, Charania notes. He shot a stellar 45.1% from three-point range for the season and connected on 45.5% of his shots overall. Prior to this season, Curry had spent most of his time in the NBA D-League, and he inked 10-day contracts with the Cavs, Grizzlies and Suns over the previous two campaigns.

The combo guard, who is the younger brother of Warriors superstar Stephen Curry, is in line for a higher salary than his player option would have seen him earn, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee opined recently. Curry averaged more than 11 points per game after the All-Star break and he notched 16.4 points and 5.3 assists in his last seven games of the season. “I think I’ve played pretty well and showed some different things in my game that will set me up for the future to show I can be a good player in this league for a long time,” Curry told Jones.

    I’ve wondered about Seth Curry’s lack of opportunity for a couple of years now. He is a better defender than Steph, good enough to see playing time with his shooting ability. He is a combo guard that is more of an undersized 2 than a PG, but that gives you versatility. I think he gets a much longer look now that you see more multiple guard lineups throughout the league, as I predicted going into these last 2-3 seasons. Now, he isnt nearly as undersized, and you’re seeing his value over the last couple of weeks that he has finally

    started to see some playing time. With his defense and shooting at the guard spots, most teams could use Seth Curry, which is why its been so surprising to me to not see him get much of an opportunity to this point

    I wonder if anyone will take him for more money. Could of been a smart move to stay s King and try to up his value more
