Since turning pro in 2013, Curry has seen most of his NBA minutes at shooting guard, but he was given the opportunity to run the point late last season with the Kings when coach George Karl opted to shut down regular starter Rajon Rondo for rest. It was during Curry's nine starts last season that he shined the brightest, averaging 14.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists across 29.9 minutes per game while hitting 45.5 percent of his shots, including a 45 percent mark from three-point range. While the presence of Deron Williams, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris probably means that Curry will end up seeing most of his minutes with his new team at shooting guard, the versatility he offers will nonetheless help his case for staying on the court.
Curry has already been somewhat of a journeyman after just three seasons in the NBA, already playing for the Cavaliers, Grizzlies, Suns, and Kings. He averaged a career-high 15.7 minutes for Sacramento last season, but that number will be hard to come by this coming season as he plays behind Deron Williams and competes for minutes with J.J. Barea and Devin Harris.
The Kings rescinded Curry's qualifying offer Sunday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.
The qualifying offer would have allowed the Kings to match any offer sheet Curry signed as a restricted free agent, but the team's decision to sign Arron Afflalo ended any chance of them retaining Curry. Without the threat of the Kings matching an offer sheet, Curry's name should begin to attract more intrigue on the open market, especially after he closed the past season on such a high note. He averaged 16.4 points, 5.3 assists, 3.3 three-pointers and 3.0 rebounds across 32.4 minutes per game in seven April contests, all while shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 48.9 percent from downtown.
Seth Curry will decline his $1 million player option and become a restricted free agent this offseason, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Curry went undrafted in 2013, but earned himself a role in the Sacramento Kings ' rotation this season, averaging 15.7 minutes per game across 44 appearances, while also shooting 45 percent from three-point range. All nine of Curry's starts came over the Kings' final 11 games of the season, a span in which the 25-year-old averaged 15.2 points and 3.8 assists. On the back of that success, Curry should garner enough interest on the free agent market to improve his salary in the coming campaign, whether he's with the Kings or another team.
It was a monster game for Curry, who almost tripled his previous career high in assists while scoring 20 points in the process. With virtually the entire
