Seth Curry reportedly set to decline player option with Sacramento Kings

Published 1 Comments

Seth Curry is not an NBA Most Valuable Player-caliber talent, but he certainly knows his worth.

That worth is a lot more than what his current contract states, which is why he has reportedly declined his player option with the Sacramento Kings and will instead hit NBA free agency this offseason to test the waters.

This is all according to a report from Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports 'The Vertical', who reported the news earlier today.

Curry is currently on a league minimum contract that would see him get paid $1 million next season if he decided to take up his option with the Kings.

With a salary cap spike set to hit over the summer, the current floor for a minimum contract is going to rise with it. However, Curry will definitely be making more than whatever the minimum is.

That is because the brother of the Golden State Warriors star stepped up his game in the 2015-16 season just gone and impressed in the second half of the season in particular for the Kings.

In 44 appearances (nine starts) with the Kings, Curry averaged 6.8 points, 1.5 assists and 0.5 steals per game while shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 45.0 percent from three-point range.

However, that doesn't showcase just how good he was in April, where Curry went off for averages of 16.4  points and 5.3 assists, on 45.9 FG% and a ludicrous 48.9 3PT% in 32.5 minutes per game.

That, combined with some solid defense, is going to get a man paid. And, while the Kings do have the option to match any deal he makes, Seth Curry is going to get a lot more money than he potentially would've done in free agency.
