Curry’s story has been one that has been overshadowed by his brother, the reigning NBA MVP and Champion Stephen Curry. Like Stephen, Seth was overlooked by big programs out of high school. He initially went to Liberty University on scholarship. Stephen’s success at Davidson and Seth’s somewhat similar game caused at least one college basketball coach to reconsider missing on another Curry. Coach Mike Krzyzewski got Seth to transfer to Duke.

Since leaving Duke, Seth Curry has been trying to work his way into the big time. He was in the NBDL last year with the Santa Cruz Warriors and the Erie Bayhawks. Yet he was relegated to the stands when big brother Stephen took on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals. That is now about to change.

The big breakout moment for Seth Curry so far has been the past summer league season where he was almost the toast of Los Vegas. Curry averaged 23 points per game on 45% from the floor to lead all scorers. He was uncharacteristically poor from the three point line, but he showed that he is ready to fill a shoot-and-defend role for some NBA team. Ironically it was not the franchise he represented that offered him the deal. Curry was playing for the Pelicans summer team and ended up on the Kings roster.

With the Kings, Curry enters a locker room in the middle of healing itself. George Karl and DeMarcus Cousins both had statements leak that damaged the relationship between star and coach. Seth Curry’s role will be to come in off the bench and provide a little shooting and a little defense in relief of guys like Ben McLemore. The loss of Nick Stauskas may open up more potential minutes for Curry if he plays well.
