7. Signing Seth Curry to a two-year deal

Although Seth Curry has been playing much better over the last few games, the Dallas Mavericks could regret signing Curry considering how bad their defense has been this season.

Curry is averaging 4.1 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 0.9 assists while shooting 34.4 percent from downtown, but this is not what Mavs fans expected to sign Curry.

The media was clamoring about how the Mavs signing Curry was one of the most underrated moves of the offseason, but his impact has not been reflective of that. His 3-point shooting numbers are down and he is only playing around 10.8 minutes per game.

Dallas being so shorthanded over the last few games has been a blessing in disguise for Curry as he is playing more and finally able to get some rhythm, but Dallas signing him could be something they wish they never did.

Considering they gave him $4 million annually, the Mavs could have signed someone that addresses their weaknesses rather than another guard off the bench. Dallas has a massive logjam of guards off the bench that includes Curry, Tim Hardaway Jr., Dante Exum, and Jaden Hardy, but this roster could look different at the trade deadline.

If Curry continues to thrive while Hardaway Jr. is out then he could cement himself as part of the rotation, but things were not looking great for him at the start of the season as he was hardly playing.
