4. Seth Curry

When the Dallas Mavericks signed Seth Curry, seemingly the entire NBA world was raving about his fit in Dallas. Some people even labeled this signing as the most underrated move of the offseason.

Dallas signed Curry within a few hours of free agency starting, and he was expected to make a big impact on the Mavs. His shooting ability combined with Luka Doncic's elite ability to draw in the defense seemed like it would be a match made in heaven.

Curry had proven himself as one of the best shooters in the NBA throughout his entire career, and pairing that with two players who command all the attention of the defense seemed like it was going to be perfect for Curry.

So far this season, that has not been the case.

Curry is finally starting to play more over the last few games, but he is still averaging just 3.4 points per game on 10.1 minutes per game. Those numbers are rough, but his shooting numbers are even more of a shock. Curry is shooting 26.7 percent from downtown. For reference, Curry was shooting 43.5 percent from downtown before this season.

These numbers show that he has been a massive disappointment, and hopefully, some more playing time can lead to increased shooting efficiency. These numbers will likely climb before the season is over, but that starts with Curry improving.
