With Kyrie Irving out for at least two weeks, the Cleveland Cavaliers have signed former Golden State Warriors Seth Curry (the younger brother of Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry) to a 10-contract. The team has yet to official announce the move, but Diamond Leung of The Bay Area Media Group, Curry has signed with the Cavaliers. Curry was playing with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA’s D-League.

A former Duke Blue Devil, Curry spent time earlier this season with the Memphis Grizzlies. With the Santa Cruz Warriors, Curry has averaged 19.4 points and 5.3 assists in 35.3 minutes per game. In his Warriors debut back in November, Curry set the D-League singe-game scoring record with 36 points in a Warriors’ victory over the Austin Toros.
The Cavaliers should announce the move later today, making Curry available for Cleveland’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday. With Irving out (and Dion Waiters potentially joining him on the sideline after limping off the court last night against the Miami Heat), Curry provides necessary depth in the backcourt. His contract,if signed today, will expire on March 29th. Curry can sign two more 10-day deals after the first if the Cavaliers decide they want to keep him around.
