Seth Curry is finalizing an agreement on a two-year, $6 million deal to sign with the Dallas Mavericks, league sources told The Vertical.
A formal agreement should be reached soon.
Curry, the younger brother of two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry of Golden State, had his qualifying offer rescinded by the Sacramento Kings on Sunday, clearing the way for him to find a deal as an unrestricted free agent.
The Mavericks made strides in filling out their roster Monday, trading for Golden State center Andrew Bogut and reaching agreement with forward Harrison Barnes on a four-year, $94 million max contract, league sources said.
The Kings reached an agreement on a three-year deal with free-agent guard Garrett Temple on Sunday, pushing their roster even deeper with guards. Seth Curry had been a restricted free agent, which means the Kings could’ve matched any offer sheet for him within a three-day waiting period.
Curry, 25, had the best season of his young NBA career with the Kings, including a stretch starting games late in the season and averaging 14 points. Curry chose to opt out of the second year of a two-year, $2 million contract this summer.
Curry had brief 10-day contract stops with Phoenix, Cleveland and Memphis between trips to the NBA Development League since going unselected in the 2013 NBA draft.
