Mavericks Sign Seth Curry To Four-Year Contract

JULY 10: The Mavericks have officially signed Curry, the club announced today in a press release.

As we detailed earlier today, Dallas could use either cap room or the mid-level exception for over-the-cap teams to sign Curry.

JULY 1: Free agent guard Seth Curry has agreed to a contract with the Mavericks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link).

The agreement between the sides is a four-year deal worth $32MM, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports. Curry can officially sign his contract once the moratorium period ends on July 6.

Curry is coming off an impressive season with Portland, averaging 7.9 points in 18.9 minutes per game. He has been one of the NBA’s best three-point shooters in recent years, making 45.0% of his outside shots in 2018/19 to increase his career rate to 43.9%.

The terms of Curry’s deal will allow the Mavericks to remain flexible. If the team decides to make use of its cap room, Curry’s signing can be completed using space. If Dallas opts to stay over the cap and make use of its $21MM trade exception, Curry’s deal could fit into the mid-level exception.

The Mavericks remain interested in free agent Danny Green, Stein adds in a separate tweet, but Green is determined to wait on Kawhi Leonard‘s decision before making a choice on where to sign.

        Seth can’t facilitate the offense, he’s not a playmaker. He’s a shooting guard trapped in a pg body. All he can do is shoot. But… he’s really good at it.

    another player i wanted on the lakers gone. at this point it seem like they are going to sign their own free agents and vets who are either free agents or who might get waive

      They can’t jeopardize their cap number… Kawhi may well be en route.

      I bet they sign and trade some of those guys… maybe rondo and kcp.

    I thought he would get more than $10m AAV, at $8m this is a steal. And I’ll definitely be watching as many Mavs games as I can this year.

    so we are getting to the point in FA when the dumb teams start making dumb moves …. cough Knicks … Cough Mavs…. reek of desperation.

      Mavs were 17-9 when curry was getting starting minutes, I wanted them to resign him two years ago. He will provide the same type of off the ball shooting and playmaking the Kemba would have… at a discount.
