Player No. 3: Seth Curry

No, not Stephen Curry! Many of you might not remember that Seth Curry played with the Cavs on a 10-day contract back in 2013. He’s 32 years old now but maybe he still has a little left in the tank. He’s not going to be the best defender but he can still score buckets and if the Cavs are wanting to score from the perimeter and a player that could come off the bench or even emergency start, then Curry would be a good pickup.

There are rumored to be several teams interested in acquiring this free agent and I’ll curious to see if Cleveland can have a good chance at signing Curry. It was back in March of 2014 when the Cavs signed Curry to a very brief contract. He played in one game and then was not re-signed.

Curry struggled early in his career to establish himself and moved around a lot. For his whole career, he’s never been with a team for more than one season. He has played for the Dallas Mavericks and Philadelphia 76ers for more than one season but it’s been a partial year or where he returned two years later.

I’m not sure what that says of the player, but for the Cavs this year, if they wanted a player that could score and give them an edge off the bench, then Curry could be a great pickup.

Curry is a career 11-point per game player while averaging about 24 minutes a game. He’s a lifetime 46 percent shooter from the floor while averaging 40 percent from beyond the three-point arc. He could come off the Cavaliers bench and give them a spark, and could also potentially play as a starter if needed for Darius Garland or Donovan Mitchell at times.
