Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry was phenomenal in his return to Texas. Here is a grade for his production in the 2019-2020 season.
The Dallas Mavericks brought back a familiar face in Seth Curry. He had his breakout season in 2017 with the Mavs. Curry would miss the entire next year with a leg injury. He decided to sign a one-year deal with the Portland Trail Blazers to prove he was healthy. Curry helped them reach the Western Conference Finals before hitting the open market again.
There were plenty of suitors, but he opted for a four-year $32 million contract with the Mavericks. It reunited him with coach Rick Carlisle, but the cast around him had changed mightily since his first stop in Dallas. Curry had to get comfortable with his new teammates. That process was slowed as he dealt with an injury during the preseason.
The season did not get off to a fast start. He was still working his way into form. Curry caught fire as the calendar flipped to 2020, though. The 29-year-old averaged 15.8 points and 2.9 3-pointers made in 27.4 minutes over his final 28 games before the NBA suspended play. He did it while shooting 55.0 percent from the field and 50.9 percent on his threes.
The 2019-2020 season may resume at some point, but the hiatus has already lasted more than two months. With no end in sight, more than a normal offseason will have passed by the time they see the court again. The Mavericks 67 games before the suspension will always be a season in many ways.
Today, we will hand out grades for Seth Curry’s offensive and defensive performance before calculating an overall mark for his year.
