The Dallas Mavericks have signed free agent guard Seth Curry.
Curry (6-1, 190) holds career averages of 11.0 points (.475 FG%, .435 3FG%, .862 FT%), 2.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 24.4 minutes in 438 games (206 starts) with Memphis, Cleveland, Phoenix, Sacramento, Dallas, Portland, Philadelphia and Brooklyn. His 43.5% (824-1,893 3FG) career 3-point field goal percentage is the fifth-highest mark in NBA history (min. 500 3FGM). Curry has also shot at least 40.0% from deep in each of the last seven seasons, the longest active streak in the NBA.
“We are excited to reunite Seth and his family with the city of Dallas,” said Mavericks General Manager Nico Harrison. “His elite shooting will help strengthen our roster.”
The nine-year veteran, who appeared in 70 games (42 starts) for Dallas in 2016-17 and 64 games (25 starts) for the club in 2019-20, will join Morlon Wiley and Devin Harris as the only Mavericks to play three different stints with the franchise (min. 1 game played with another NBA team between stints). Curry also spent the 2017-18 campaign with the Mavericks but missed the entire season due to a stress reaction in his left tibia.
In 134 total games (67 starts) with Dallas, Curry has averaged 12.6 points (.487 FG%, .439 3FG%, .838 FT%), 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 26.9 minutes. His 43.9% (282-643 3FG) career 3-point percentage with the Mavericks is the second-highest mark in team history (min. 250 3FGM) behind Hubert Davis’ 45.4% (306-674 3FG) clip.
After going undrafted in the 2013 NBA Draft, Curry began his professional career with the G League’s Santa Cruz Warriors. As a first-year player in 2013-14, he garnered NBA G League All-Star honors while also being named to the All-NBA G League Third Team and NBA G League All-Rookie First Team that year. After appearing in two NBA games for Memphis and Cleveland in 2013-14, Curry returned to the G League with the Erie Bayhawks, where he went on to earn NBA G League All-Star honors and All-NBA G League First Team accolades for the club in 2014-15. He also appeared in two NBA games while on a 10-day contract for Phoenix in 2014-15, before playing his first full NBA season with Sacramento in 2015-16.
The 32-year-old originally signed with Dallas as a free agent on July 15, 2016, and again on July 10, 2019. Curry was traded by Dallas to Philadelphia in exchange for Josh Richardson and the draft rights to Tyler Bey (36th overall pick) on Nov. 18, 2020.
Curry began his collegiate career at Liberty before transferring to Duke following his freshman season. As a redshirt sophomore in 2010-11, he played alongside Mavericks guard Kyrie Irving, who he was also teammates with on the Nets in both 2021-22 and 2022-23. As a senior in 2012-13, Curry started all 35 games for the Blue Devils and averaged 17.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 32.3 minutes en route to earning First Team All-ACC honors.
The Charlotte native is the son of Dell, a 16-year NBA veteran, and the brother of Stephen, the league’s all-time leader in 3-point field goals made (3,390-7,929, .428). Curry will wear No. 30 for Dallas in 2023-24, the same number he donned in his previous stints with Dallas, and the same number worn by his father and brother.
