Seth Curry At Kings: Junior Curry Emulates Steps Of Father Dell, MVP Elder Bro Stephen
Both Curry brothers are now in Northern California. Seth Curry has joined his older brother after signing a two-year deal with Sacramento Kings worth $2 million on Tuesday, according to league sources. New front-office leader Vlade Divac this summer has reconstructed the Kings roster, of which Seth will be a part of.
But junior Curry will be facing the fierce challenge of MVP bro Stephen in the Western conference regular season or post season playoff.
Seth Curry shone in New Orleans Pelicans’ colors in the recently concluded summer league at Las Vegas. The leading scorer in Las Vegas, he averaged 24.3 points in six games.
He juggled between the Development League and 10-day contracts for Cleveland, Phoenix and Memphis during the past two seasons.
At 24, junior Curry is three year youngers than MVP Stephen Curry. He visited many games of the Golden State Warriors’ last season to watch his elder brother excel and guide his team to the NBA championship title. Seth Curry shot 45.9 percent from the field and 22.9 percent from 3-point range while his team went 5-1 in Las Vegas. Surely lagging way behind his elder brother, especially in terms of shooting from the 3-point range.
The knee injury he had left him undrafted out of Duke and took a toll on his career graph.
The Curry family dwells on tight bonding. MVP on Tuesday tweeted, “Let’s goooooo! He’s been patient and worked so hard to get here.got his Foot in the door now it’s time to go! Love you bro!” to inspire his younger brother.
Their father Dell Curry featured ten seasons in NBA for the Charlotte Hornets. Both Curry brothers are now following their footsteps. Seth Curry wore his father’s number 30 on his jersey while playing for Liberty University and Duke. Steph, too, chose to play with 30 on his collegiate and professional basketball jersey.
The pressure of being MVP’s younger brother mounts on Seth. He revealed that “Be yourself, don’t try to measure yourself up to anybody else, just go out there, and try to maximize your own potential. Be the best you, that you can be” is the best advice he received.
