The Golden State Warriors have five open spots on their roster as free agency gets set to begin on July 1. Some of those five spots will likely go to players who were on the team last season; JaVale McGee, Patrick McCaw, and Kevon Looney are all prime candidates to return to the club.
But some of the roster spots will go to outsiders. And one such outsider who will surely be discussed for the team is none other than Seth Curry. Curry is an unrestricted free agent, and, in most years, would probably get a lot more money than Golden State can offer him.
However, he missed all of last season with an injury (and we’re in for a cheap summer), so it’s very possible that he can be had on a one-year contract to build his value back up. Naturally, Curry is being linked to the team where his big brother, Stephen Curry, is the face of the franchise.
Interesting free agent option for the Warriors if he can't find money elsewhere: Seth Curry. Fills a bench shooting need, recent injury history diminishes value in a market short on cash + I think he might have a GSW family link.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) June 26, 2018
So, would the Warriors be interested? With Nick Young almost surely leaving, they’re in dire need of bench shooting. Quinn Cook can provide some of that, but having another option would be beneficial.
Seth is probably less of a priority than, say, signing some centers, but his shooting would play very well on the team.
That said, it’s fair to wonder if he’d like to join Golden State. He played for the team’s G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, in his rookie season. But in the past, when signing his first NBA contracts, he’s mentioned wanting to escape his brother’s shadow, and go somewhere where he can make a name for himself.
Long story short: Two Currys could happen in Golden State, but it’s way too early to start printing up the jerseys.
