Per Adrian Wojnarowski and the New York Times’ Marc Stein, guard Seth Curry has reached a deal with the Mavericks on a four year, $32 million deal.
As most of us recall, Curry spent the 2016-17 and 2017-18 season in a Maverick uniform where he averaged 29 minutes and nearly 13 points on a blazing 43% from beyond the arc.
After sitting out the 2017-18 season with a stress reaction in his leg, the Mavericks opted to let him leave in free agency. He ended up signing with the Portland Trail Blazers for the 2018-19 season, where he shot 45.6 percent (including a ridiculous 45 percent from three on 3.4 attempts) and had some very nice moments in Portland’s playoff run this year.
A lot of us were sad to see Seth go when Dallas didn’t re-sign him after his two year deal expired in 2018. However, his shooting prowess is a welcome addition to a squad that desperately needs shooters. The Mavericks finished the 2018-19 season 4th in attempts at 36.6 per game while only hitting 34% of them, good for 27th over all. The addition of Kristaps Porzingis should open the floor further for Curry, providing even better looks than he saw the last time he wore a Dallas uniform.
The Mavericks are still in pursuit of Danny Green, per Stein, who is waiting on the decision of Kawhi Leonard, but Dallas fans can take one small sigh of relief that one of the many off season issues has been addressed head on with the signing of Curry.
