The Dallas Mavericks have signed free agent guard Seth Curry, the team announced today. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, it’s a four-year, $32 million deal.
Curry signs with Dallas after spending the 2018-19 season with the Portland Trail Blazers where he averaged 7.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 18.9 minutes in 74 games (2 starts). Curry ranked third in the NBA in three-point shooting, finishing the season at .450 from behind-the-arc and competing in the Three-Point Contest at All Star Weekend in Charlotte. He also shot .456 from the field and .846 from the foul line while helping Portland reach the Western Conference Finals.
The signing marks Curry’s second stint with the Mavericks. He signed with Dallas as a free agent on July 15, 2016, and averaged a career-high 12.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 70 games (42 starts) while shooting .481 from the field, .425 from three-point range and .850 from the free throw line. In his second year in Dallas, Curry did not see the floor for the entire 2017-18 season due to a stress injury to his left tibia that eventually required season-ending surgery.
After going undrafted in the 2013 NBA Draft, Curry was acquired by the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League and scored 36 points in his D-League debut. On Dec. 24, 2013, Curry was signed by the Memphis Grizzlies and made his NBA debut. He was waived by Memphis on Jan. 4, 2014 before returning to Santa Cruz where he went on to average 19.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 5.8 assists in 38 games (37 starts) and be named D-League All-Star and All-NBA D-League Third Team. The following season, Curry averaged 23.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 43 games (42 starts) with the Erie BayHawks of the D-League. He again garnered D-League All-Star honors as well as being named 2015 All-NBA D-League First Team.
The native of Charlotte, Curry is the son of Dell, a 16-year NBA veteran, and the brother of Golden State’s Stephen Curry. Like his father, his brother and his previous season in Dallas, he will wear number 30 for the Mavericks.
