Seth Curry will be joining older brother Stephen when the Golden State Warriors begin training camp at the end of September. The 6-2 undrafted guard signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Warriors on Aug. 23.
Curry was unable to participate in pre-draft activities this year as he was recovering from a right shin injury. He averaged 17.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in his final season at Duke. Curry ranked second in the ACC in scoring and three-point percentage (.438).
Curry ended up averaging 13.2 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists in his three-years at Duke. He ranks third on the Blue Devils all-time list in ranked third on the school's all-time list in three-point percentage (.420), fifth in free throw percentage (.825) and eighth in three-pointers made (223).
Curry will have the hard time making Golden State’s roster this season as the Warriors currently have 14 players under contract. He will probably be competing with second-year guard Kent Bazemore and rookie guard Nemanja Nedovic, who was a first round pick of the Phoenix Suns in this year’s draft, for the final roster spot.
Curry is an undersized shooting guard who can shoot the lights out and has impressive range with his jumper. He possesses a high motor and has a quick first step to the hoop. He is very good at catching and shooting but he also has the ability to shoot coming off screens and can finish at the hoop.
Curry biggest issues at the NBA level is his lack of athleticism, the fact that he is not a playmaker and he lacks great ball-handling skills. He is kind of a liability on defense and doesn’t have the quickness to stay in front of point guards or the strength to defend bigger guards.
If Curry doesn’t make the opening day roster, the Warriors could send him to Santa Cruz (NBDL).
