The Dallas Mavericks added some bench depth on Monday by agreeing to a deal with Seth Curry. According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Curry has agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal with the Mavs.
After repeated tries to get a solid footing in the league, Curry played for the Sacramento Kings last season. Curry averaged 6.8 points on 45.5 percent shooting and 45 percent shooting from three. Averaging 15.7 minutes a game, Curry struggled to find solid playing time in Sacramento but should be part of the rotation in Dallas. Besides for J.J. Barea and Devin Harris, the Mavs have little depth within their back court bench so Curry should be a nice addition. Curry’s ability to shoot the ball should bring a nice element to Dallas’ second unit.
The Mavs have in large part whiffed on a number of top free agents this off season, but Curry is a nice pickup. A two-year deal at just six million dollars is also an extremely manageable contract and allows Curry yet another chance to prove his worth in the league. It is a low risk move for the Mavs that can seriously pay off if Curry becomes a potent scorer off the bench.
