Duke's Seth Curry signs with Golden State Warriors
Charlottean and former Duke guard Seth Curry, who went undrafted in June, has signed with the Golden State Warriors, where his brother, Stephen, already stars.
Curry signed an unguaranteed contract, which is essentially an invitation to training camp in October.
Curry had surgery following Duke’s season to stabilize a stress fracture in his right shin. That precluded him from working out for NBA teams before the draft or playing in summer league. The Charlotte Bobcats offered him a spot on their summer league team, but he wasn’t yet physically cleared to play in July.
Curry expressed interest in being in the Bobcats’ training camp in Asheville, but nothing came to fruition.
Like his brother and his father – Bobcats television analyst Dell – Seth is a particularly skilled long-range shooter. He made 44 percent of his 3-point attempts as a Duke senior, averaging 17.5 points per game, while playing through that stress fracture.
Stephen Curry, who starred at Davidson, became the central piece in the Warriors’ upset of the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs. Curry has excelled in the NBA as a point guard. Seth Curry, who is 6-foot-2, played mostly shooting guard his senior season at Duke.

So glad Seth Curry has a spot! Know he will do well and be an asset to the team like his brother is.

Seth Curry does NOT have a roster spot, you dumb dildo! He has an unguaranteed contract and he just might make the roster as the 15th player. It would work out better for Seth if he either went and played in the NBDL or played overseas. He's not really NBA-level material, as the other NBA General Managers just illustrated for you. The Warriors are giving him a chance, but it's merely to fill bodies when training camp rolls along.

He doesn't have a spot on the roster, he has a shot to make the roster. There is a difference!

He doesn't have a garaunteed spot, but I am sure his brother can get him oneif he wants to. Good luck Seth and well played.

I HATE Duke, but I have no idea why this kid did not get a shot with the hometown team. What did they have to lose? Lots of teams regret overlooking his brother. Certainly can play in the NBA if nothing more than 3 point specialist. I'll guarantee you he can get his shot off.

It's nice that he's getting a shot, but as the rude and uncouth poster said above, he's really just there to fill bodies for training camp, and as a favor to his brother and the Warriors best player. If he was NBA-level ready, he would have been drafted. Every GM in the league can't be wrong. Best to play overseas or in the development league and if he impresses (and his leg holds up), he'll get a REAL shot somewhere down the line.

beacause nba gms get it right every single time. how many undrafted players make it every year? how many top 10 picks flop or were a huge reach? we just signed 2 guys that went undrafted and worked their way in the league.
there's a million ways this comes back to haunt us and there's no way signing him to the rookie minimum would have. 500k on the payroll for a year for an absolute wild card. huge mistake in not taking that chance.

Cory Higgins is gonna get another look, no room for Seth.

No room for Seth Curry? There should have been. Morons.

Doesn't fit the cookie cutter mold. Neither did his father, brother or for that matter Muggsy Bogues or Spud Webb. They made all look like clowns who said not NBA cookie cutter material.

You guys do realize that it was Seth who "DECIDED" to sign with the Warriors. The Bobcats were not in control for anything, actually, the Bobcats really wanted him to play "at least" in the Pre-Season roster, but Seth "DECIDED" to sign with the Warriors" instead.
Which may be a really tricky/strange decision. I honestly think he had a MUCH better chance at making the NBA and more money with the Bobcats than he does with the Warriors. But who knows, maybe Big Bro already opened a door for him at GSW.

RobC, wrong. Seth publicly stated being in Charlotte was a dream scenario for him but the BOOB's never offered him even an unguaranteed Training camp invite. Typical BOOBcat failure...

I love this team with Kemba running the point. He now has support with the bigs and creating opportunities for a MUCH improved front court. He is a winner and I think he is better than most elite point guards comparing year 2 skills. Not many players in the NBA can say they had the impact of winning a ational championship. I see him doing the same for Charlotte in a few years.
