Oakland, CA, United States (4E Sports) – The Golden States Warriors signed Seth Curry, the younger brother of their superstar Stephen Curry, to a non-guaranteed contract.
Terms of the deal were not released.
An undrafted free-agent, Seth averaged 17.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists last season for Duke.
Seth and Stephen Curry hold the NCAA record for highest career scoring total for brothers, with a combined 4,736 points. Stephen scored 2,635 from 2006-09 at Davidson, and Seth scored 2,101 in one season at Liberty and three at Duke.
They played together in high school at Charlotte Christian School when Stephen was a senior and Seth was a sophomore.
Stephen described being able to play along Seth as members of the Warriors to be a “dream come true” and “a throwback to high school.”
At 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, Seth is undersized for an NBA shooting guard and lacks explosiveness and the ability to get to the rim.
Like Stephen, Seth excels from long range, having made 44 percent of his three-point attempts last year, which was second in the ACC.
The brothers are not known for their defense.
Stephen admits that Seth is considered a more talented defender than him.
“Some would say he plays better defense me,” Steph explained. “I’m getting better. He can lock up.”
Seth had surgery in April for a lower-leg injury that bothered him for much of his senior season.
If he doesn’t make the team, he could also try to work his way up through the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League.
Seth was also waiting for potential offers from the Charlotte Bobcats and San Antonio Spurs. He reportedly turned down an offer from a team in Barcelona.
