Golden State Warriors Sign Seth Curry, But Still May Not Get to Play With Stephen
Earlier this summer, it was reported that the Golden State Warriors had extended an invitation to their training camp to former Duke guard and undrafted rookie, Seth Curry. Curry is also the brother of Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry. At the time of those rumors, though, it seemed like Seth Curry would have a hard time making the Warriors’ roster to play with his brother.
However, the Warriors have brought the rookie one-step closer as they signed him to a non-guaranteed contract on Friday where he will be able to try and make their roster at training camp, per ESPN and the Bay Area News Group. Even with the contract, though, it still seems like Seth Curry is far away from making the Warriors’ final roster.
Curry going undrafted was actually a surprise to quite a few people. In his final season with the Blue Devils he was impressive as he averaged 17.5 points and 2.5 rebounds per game while shooting a solid 46.5 percent from the floor and an admirable 43.8 percent from beyond-the-arc. He was unable to participate in Summer League, though, due to recovering from an injury and subsequent surgery.
Talent isn’t the reason that is seems unlikely Curry will be with the Warriors this season, though. It essentially comes down to the fact that the Warriors already have a crowded wing rotation with guys like Harrison Barnes, Kent Bazemore, Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson and Nemanja Nedovic. There’s simply no room on the Warriors for another wing player at this point.
Curry’s options will likely come down to him being released since his contract it’s non-guaranteed or him being sent down to the D-League to develop until a potential need arises with Golden State. If he can prove himself, though, it seems that the talent is there for him to succeed, it just doesn’t seem like the opportunity is going to be there this year.
