Howard Smith-USA Today Sports

Position: Shooting Guard

NBA fans are well aware of the playoff tear that Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been on. Well, there’s now the chance that the NBA could be graced with two Curry’s, as Duke senior shooting guard and Stephen’s younger brother, Seth Curry, is entering the 2013 NBA Draft. At 6-foot-2, Curry doesn’t have the best size in the world for the shooting guard position, but like his brother, he can shoot the basketball.

It’s not fair to compare Curry to his older brother, especially after the stellar play that he has exhibited here in 2013. Curry began his collegiate career at Liberty, but transferred to Duke prior to the 2010-11 season. Curry had his best season in Durham here in 2012-13, averaging a career-high 17.5 points per game. Curry is a prolific three point, shooting 43.8% from beyond the arc this past season. Curry has a chance of being drafted, but he’d need someone to take a chance on him late in the second round.

 

Strengths: Curry can shoot the lights out having averaged a 43.8% mark from beyond the arc in 2012-13. Curry is shifty and he can spot up in transition and although he is a much more dangerous shooter when left uncontested, he also has the ability to go off the dribble and get to the rim or pull up on his jump shot.

 

Weaknesses: Curry is a bit undersized for the shooting guard position, measuring in at only 6-foot-2. Curry needs to get stronger because unlike his brother, he’s not as offensively gifted. Curry could become a liability on the defensive end of the floor, given his size disadvantage.

 

Draft Projection: Undrafted
