4 Dallas Mavericks who have surprisingly been bench warmers this season

3 of 4

2. Seth Curry

One of the most surprising parts of the Dallas Mavericks' season this year is that Seth Curry has not been a consistent part of the rotation.

Heading into the season, Dallas' signing of Curry was heralded as one of the most underrated signings of the offseason. Dallas got him for a relatively cheap price, and his 3-point shooting ability is one of the best ever.

Shooters thrive alongisde Luka Doncic, and Curry was someone that seemingly could help the Mavs take their game to the next level.

Even though the Mavs as a team have been successful, Curry hasn't played much.

Through 10 games, Curry is averaging 2.0 points, 1.0 rebounds, and 0.6 assists per game while shooting 25.0 percent from downtown. These numbers should go up as the season progresses, but it will be hard for him to find a rhythm if he's only playing 8.3 minutes per game.

No one expected Curry to be at the end of Dallas' bench before the season, but elite play from everyone around him has kept him on the bench for the majority of the year.

Curry would likely be able to return to the elite shooting numbers he once had if his minutes go up, but he seems to be an afterthought in Dallas' rotation right now.
