With the increased emphasis on pace and space, shooting is at a premium in the NBA. Three-point specialists like JJ Redick and Kyle Korver are arguably more valuable now than they were at their physical peak.
While Seth Curry may not be as versatile as his brother Steph Curry, there's one thing both have in common – they can shoot the lights out. As a result, Seth could be a coveted addition for any team in need of another established shooter. Here are the three most likely destinations for Curry in free agency this offseason.
3. Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers struggled to mesh last season. While there were many different factors at play, the team clearly suffered from a lack of spacing, ranking No. 29 in the NBA in 3-point percentage. Adding a 3-point marksman like Curry could open up the floor for LeBron James and the rest of the Lakers' young, athletic roster. Los Angeles is also working with plenty of cap space, so they should be able to afford Curry.
2. Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors have made a habit of signing low-cost veterans looking for a ring in free agency, and Seth's shooting could make him a seamless fit. Adding Seth could help bolster a bench unit that has struggled when the Warriors' elite players aren't on the floor. Besides, why wouldn't you want to pair up the Curry brothers?
1. Dallas Mavericks
With Luka Doncic's innate ability to create open shots for his teammates, the Dallas Mavericks would be wise to surround him with shooters. While the rest of Dallas' roster is in flux, with Kristaps Porzingis' future up in the air due to troubling legal allegations, the Mavericks should still prioritize adding shooters. Curry makes a ton of sense, as he'd likely fill a serious need at a cheap cost, and the Mavericks could still have enough cash to pursue a star player in free agency.
