7. Stock fading: Seth Curry
After being the Dallas Mavericks' second signing of free agency behind only Kyrie Irving, Mavs fans couldn't wait to see Seth Curry on the court for Dallas.
He is widely known as one of the best shooters of all time, and he performed well in his previous two stints with the Mavs. Despite all of the hype surrounding the signing, Curry has disappointed thus far.
Curry was a DNP-CD in Dallas' last three games, and his role has been minimal even in games that he does play in.
In five games, Curry is averaging 1.8 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.8 assists per game while shooting 20 percent from downtown. This slow start to the season is not what fans expected from Curry, and his role could shrink even more if Jaden Hardy continues to play at a high level.
Dallas' bench is crowded with strong guards, and Curry could remain behind Tim Hardaway Jr. and Hardy for the remainder of the season unless he begins to cash in his open looks and make an impact when on the floor.
Curry is only shooting 1.0 3-pointers per game, so maybe an increase in playing time and volume could help the former Blue Devil earn his spot in the rotation back.
Dallas is winning games despite Curry only playing 9.0 minutes per game, but everyone expected more out of the sharpshooter before the season started.
