Curry was traded to the 76ers on Wednesday in exchange for Josh Richardson and the No. 36 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The deal comes out of nowhere, but the two teams will essentially swap shooting guards, enabling Curry to head East and play for his father-in-law, Doc Rivers. In 64 games for the Mavs last season, Curry averaged 12.4 points and hit a career-best 2.3 three-pointers per game at a 45.2 percent clip (also a career-high).
Curry finished with 22 points (9-11 FG, 4-4 3Pt), three assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Friday's 130-122 Game 3 loss to the Clippers.
Curry barely missed a shot, and with Luka Doncic (ankle) suffering what looked to be a nasty injury, he could be in line for a larger role if the Mavs' biggest star is forced to miss action. Of course, he won't be asked to pick up all the slack on his own.
Curry posted 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt), three rebounds and two steals across 33 minutes in Monday's 118-110 loss to the Clippers in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
Curry slid to the bench after Dallas opted to go with Dorian Finney-Smith at the three, which shifted Tim Hardaway into Curry's usual spot.

Curry remains one of the best sharpshooters on the roster and showcased that with four threes on Monday. Curry battled a leg injury throughout the seeding games, but he was effective when he played. His highlight was a 22-point outing against the Jazz.
