3. Signing Seth Curry
At the time of the signing, Seth Curry to Dallas looked like a great move.
Statistically, he is one of the greatest shooters of all time, and he has already been on the Mavericks for two previous stints. His fit next to Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving sounded great, as he would get tons of open looks and provide a spark off the bench.
So far this season, that has not been the case. He is averaging just 3.1 points per game on 26.7 percent shooting from downtown. Curry has only been playing 9.2 minutes per game, and the Mavs haven't leaned on him as much as fans thought they would.
Other than his poor play, another reason that Dallas may regret this signing is due to their failure to trade Tim Hardaway Jr. during the offseason and his rapid rise in efficiency and effectiveness.
Hardaway Jr. is playing some of the best basketball of his career, and he and Curry provide some of the same skills. If Hardaway Jr. had been traded as he was expected to, there would have been more of a role for Curry.
Since they didn't trade Hardaway Jr., Dallas now has a logjam at guard off the bench. Hardaway Jr., Curry, and Jaden Hardy are all fighting for minutes, and the Curry signing really doesn't make much sense considering the current construction of their roster.
