Former Duke Blue Devils guard Seth Curry has a chance to reunite with his brother, Stephen Curry, with the Golden State Warriors after signing with them on Friday.
The Bay Area News Group first reported the signing. From the Associated Press:
The Warriors signed the undrafted former Duke guard to a non-guaranteed contract Friday. He will compete for a roster spot in training camp, which starts in late September.
Curry was recovering from a right shin injury during the pre-draft process. He averaged 17.5 points on 46.5 percent shooting in his final season at Duke.
It looks pretty clear that Seth got the opportunity in large part with his brother being on the team.
Chances aren’t likely high for Seth, who will need to battle to gain a spot on the roster. Just at the guard position, the Warriors have Steph, Klay Thompson, Toney Douglas, and Andre Iguodala. Nemanja Nedovic is a rookie from Serbia that’s listed as 6-foot-3 and 192 pounds.
Seth will hope to get some help from his brother, who he’s unsurprisingly looked up to most. He originally played for the Liberty Flames before transferring to Duke and wore “30″ on his jersey, the same number Steph wears with the Warriors.
