4. Seth Curry
Kyrie Irving only played 11 games for Duke during his lone season there in 2011, but he was teammates with seven future NBA players. The 6’2 guard was the number two recruit in the country, and he was supposed to lead the team, but a toe injury kept him out for most of the season. Irving returned for the NCAA Tournament, but Duke was upset by Arizona in the Sweet 16.
Seth Curry has been Irving’s teammate three different times. They were together at Duke, but Curry spent two more years playing for the Blue Devils before coming to the NBA. He went undrafted in 2013 but picked up a ten-day contract with the Cavaliers midseason. Curry played in just one game, and Irving was out with an injury, but they were briefly teammates in Cleveland before linking back up in Brooklyn in 2022.
Curry talked about what it was like reuniting with Kyrie on the court after 11 years with Draymond Green on his podcast.
Seth Curry has had arguably the two most successful stints of his NBA career with the Dallas Mavericks. Would the 6’2 sharpshooter be interested in coming back to play next to Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving? Why not, and he could be a fantastic fit.
Seth Curry is an unrestricted free agent this summer, and he will be likely looking for a mid-level exception contract. Who will sign him? That is an unknown, but expect the Mavs to have some interest.
