Welcome Seth Curry

How good can this guy be?

Lead the league in catch and shoot 3s at 49%.

Averages 44.3% on 3s for his career.

They say he can be the league’s best 3pt shooter.

He’s only 29. At his age, JJ just moved from Mil to Clips and was just averaging 15ppg. Both can be just as good at the same age.

JJ had his best years with us. At age 33 and 34, averaging 17-18ppg.

We always knew JJ is a rental, because of his age. We tried finding the next JJ in Shamet and Milton. But I think we can have our younger and potentially better JJ in Seth.

Seth played well on the Clips series. Mavs were -26 NetRtg when he’s off the court. And +3 NetRtg when he’s on the court.

I wont be surprised if Seth averages 15-18ppg for us next season. This is just a tremendous opportunity for Seth.



Why Seth Curry can be the best low usage scorer of all time
This may like a ridiculous statement, but the stats back it up. This is NOT an overreaction to his perfect shooting performance last night, but rather a long-standing belief about my favorite player in the league.

Many people think Seth Curry is just a shooter, but this is far from the truth. Seth is one of the most versatile offensive players in the league, allowing him to take advantage of the many varied opportunities next to Luka in the Mavs flow offense. let’s look at his case as an elite low-usage scorer:

AT THE RIM

Seth shoots 72% at the rim (82 percentile), which is considered elite for a guard. He is great at abusing mismatches brought by the mavs offense and creating his own shots. He’s in the 90th percentile in efficiency scoring off drives and the 75th percentile scoring in PnR. He has a lot of skill controlling the big man on the inside, having the ability to freeze the big at the rim by feinting an attack, only to hit a short fade or hit him with a deadly floater.

IN THE MIDRANGE

Seth is 1st in the league in midrange fg% (minimum 50 attempts) at 57% on above average volume. He has one of the most accurate middy floaters in the league, and he is deadly on long 2s, shooting 56% from 16ft-3p, good for 3rd in the league. To put it simply, he’s the best low-usage midrange player in the NBA

FROM 3

I know I don’t have to tell anyone this, but Seth is an all-time great shooter. He is 2nd all-time in career 3p% 44.3% and 2nd this season in 3p% at 45.3%. He is always ready to pull the trigger, averaging 7.1 3p attempts per 36, and his movement off ball, as well as the defense Luka draws, creates plenty of opportunity.

After reading about his incredible efficiency on every part of the floor, it may not surprise you that, if he had enough minutes to qualify, Seth would be 11th all-time in career ts%, right behind Reggie Miller

He has the highest 3 point percentage of all time since they moved the line back (Kerr has the only higher percentage overall).

He will probably add 2 assists to Ben' s average this year. He( and Green) will make our "big 3" life so easier, than last year, so much more space.

Cant see why he cant be better than JJ here. He seems to have some pg skills too, and can shoot from the dribble. I predict he will have monster impact. And his contract is so good, a really underrated part of the trade.

Jrich may be the better player, but Curry's impact here will be way better .

Seth Curry can be a major weapon if Doc can use him properly. We will see.

I will say if people on the board complain about his defense don't. It's doc job to mix in Simmons and Thybulle in to hide him if he is getting exposed on defense that is doc's fault.

He seems to be really good shooting mid range jumpers and close to the rim.

So i think he has some 3 level ability . If he is chased off the 3pt line, which is a underrated part of his game. Im wondering about his passing abiliity . I know hes not a PG but can he get Embiid the ball in the halfcourt?

He's 30, so I'd say we have a pretty good of what he is, which is an elite spot up shooter that doesn't provide much else. Can hit shots off the dribble in the event of a close out.b Can effort his way into being a passable defender in spite of being a minus athlete. Can be a secondary ball handler. Should be a nice piece to play off of Ben and Jo.

Easily. KP didn't start shining until he started playing 2 man with Curry.


With his addition, 76ers will become a better version of the team that the Mavericks wanted to be.

Need to up his usage big time. He should be out there for almost all of Ben's minutes. I'm talking 30 mpg w/a green light to chuck at will.

No chance. He's a maxed out 30 year old that has never been able to score off the dribble. He's just another Eddie House.

Ofcourse hes maxed out im just saying he knows what to do with the ball if they take away the 3 which mean he can pull up and is crafty around the rim. So he is more than a jodie meeks or isaiah caanan who could do nothing with the ball at all.

Seth was traded because Clips attacked him relentlessly when he’s on the court.

I think you can hide him. And I think Mavs were able to do that with his high on vs off NetRtg.

I think the issue is you can’t have Seth and Doncic both at the same time because both are liabilities and you’d prefer one of them to defend the PG. Mavs would prefer Luka defending a guy like Beverly over Kawhi.

Yet they signed Burke who had worse defense than Curry, and still have 3 guards shorter than him.

Perfect player to play next to Simmons.

And we can hide him defensively relatively well in most games.

We should have the personnel between Ben, Thybulle, Embiid, Green, and Howard to mitigate against Curry being a liability on defense.

He play primarily off the ball? I am not a huge fan of Simmons as our primary PG, but it seems like our best PGs at the moment are Shake and Ben.

If Danny Green starts at the two, then I imagine Ben is our primary point guard. Seth defends ones on defense.

You can't hide bad defenders anymore. Nobody fights through screens. Every team in the league switches everything.
