Seth Curry leaving the Mavericks
Just last night, ESPN announced that the Dallas Mavericks are trading Seth Curry to the Philadelphia 76ers. We were upset to see him leaving so suddenly, after spending only one season with the team. Curry has proven himself to be one of the better shooters in the league over the years.
Seth Curry has been a great player in the NBA for years now. He’s the younger brother of Stephen Curry, one of the top players in the league. Seth is also the son of an earlier NBA star, Dell Curry. Basketball seems to run in the family, so its no surprise that Philadelphia wanted him on their side.
No NBA rookie
He first began playing in the league back in 2013, playing for G-league team the Santa Cruz Warriors after graduating from Duke University. Curry moved on that same season to the Memphis Grizzlies, giving the main NBA league a try. He’s been a major star in the G-league levels, winning the All-Star award in 2014 and 2015. He paved his way to the main league with his excellent shooting skills, maintaining a shooting average around 20 points.
Onto the premier league
Curry began his full-time premier league career when he was recruited by the Sacramento Kings prior to the 2015-2016 season. Seth received an offer of $2 million over 2 years, fairly normal as far as rookie deals go. He had a very successful season with the team. Over the course of the 2015-2016 season, Curry managed to match or beat almost all of his career-highs.
He decided to try his prospects after that first season, instead of sticking around for his second year. In the summer of 2016, Dallas brought Curry on to the team. Unfortunately, he didn’t have too much play time due to leg injuries. He had to undergo surgery on his legs, and the Mavericks decided to let him go that same year.
After a brief recovery post-surgery, Curry was back on his feet. The Portland Trail Blazers gave him a deal in 2018, where he stayed before coming back to the Mavericks this past season.
We’ll miss seeing Seth Curry in Mavericks blue this next season, but are sure he’ll have a great time playing under his father-in-law and new coach, Doc Rivers.
