Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry talked about last summer’s free agency, playing with Luka Doncic, and more on Go Off with Austin Rivers.

The Dallas Mavericks have received plenty of unexpected production this season. Seth Curry is one of many players that has played lights out. He is shooting 50.0 percent from the field and sets second in the NBA in 3-point percentage this season. Curry does a phenomenal job spacing the floor for the Mavs attack.

The 29-year-old was always an elite shooter, but he has taken it to another level this season. There is room for more improvement too. Curry’s numbers improved as the season wore on. That could be a fantastic sign when the NBA returns.

With basketball suspended, Seth Curry has been keeping busing working out, spending time with family, and playing video games. He has also been doing interviews.

His latest is on Go Off with Austin Rivers. The Rockets guard is Curry’s brother-in-law too. Fans can watch the entire interview here. Below are a few highlights.

On choosing the Mavs in free agency

Rivers asked him about joining the Dallas Mavericks this season. Curry was an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019. Here is what he had to say about the process.

"“It was the first time in my career I would actually get to choose where I wanted to go. I had a few options and had a list of things that I wanted out of a team that I’d want to go to…It was easy once Dallas got in the race. You know it’s a great organization.”"

Curry also discussed how the Mavericks decision makers talked to him about what his role on the team would be plus his affection for the city. Remember, Curry spent two seasons with the Mavericks earlier in his career. He also talks about interest from the Lakers and Rockets.

On what it is like to play with Luka

Curry had this to say about playing with Luka Doncic.

"“Man it’s great. Luka is a young dude who’s beyond his years as far as he never gets scared under pressure. He plays big in big games, and he’s done it over and over and over in big situations.”"

Rivers made the James Harden comparison and Curry agreed. The Mavericks guard did give the nod for the best player that he played with to Damian Lillard because of his playoff exploits. Curry went on to compare Luka to LeBron James for his ability to read the defense and make plays.

Seth Curry also talks about his time at Duke, choosing his own path, The Last Dance, and so much more in the interview. Mavericks fans should check it out if they have extra time.
