The 23-year-old Duke product was released by the Golden State Warriors prior to the start of the season, ending the possibility of Curry joining his older brother, Stephen Curry on the Warriors’ final roster. The younger Curry, however, preserved and began to excel at the D-League level.
Curry was averaging 21.3 points, 7.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds through 12 games with Santa Cruz. He was shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 33.8 percent from beyond the arc. There was a stretch of five games when Curry scored at least 22 points in each contest.
The sputtering Grizzlies are in need of guard help. The team that finished fifth in the Western conference just one season ago, managing 56 wins, is now 11-15 and are in the thirteenth spot in the West. Aside from Mike Conley and Tony Allen, the injury-stricken Memphis squad does not have many options at the guard positions.
The Grizzlies next game is on Monday, December 23 against the Utah Jazz – the possible NBA debut of Seth Curry.
Below are highlights of Curry in his D-League debut against the Austin Toros. He dropped a team record 36 points.
