According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Seth Curry has agreed to a 2-year contract with the Sacramento Kings.
The deal is reportedly worth $2 million and gives Curry two guaranteed years with the Kings.
After leading the NBA Summer League in scoring at 25 points per game with the New Orleans Pelicans, it’s no surprise that Curry earned himself a guaranteed contract, though it is somewhat surprising that he’ll be going to Sacramento.
Overshadowed by the success of his brother Stephen, the reigning NBA MVP, Seth Curry has bounced around with different organizations over the past couple years, earning short-term contracts while also being one of the most impressive scorers in the D-League.
Seth’s scoring ability was on full display with the Pelicans during the summer league, which was good enough to earn him a spot on the All-NBA Summer League team.
In looking at Sacramento’s roster, there’s no reason to think Curry couldn’t work his way into a spot in the regular backcourt rotation. For a team lacking consistent perimeter shooters at the guard position, Curry could be the ideal fit to provide instant offense off the bench.
It doesn’t look to be a particularly promising season for the Kings, especially with questions about how DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo, and George Karl will co-exist, but hopefully it’s a situation that allows Seth to get his foot in the door and play his way onto a better environment or organization.
Regardless – congratulations to Seth on this great accomplishment!
