When a player returns to a former home, there is always something to look forward to. It is a return to where a player spent time, made friends and memories. The return always brings a little something extra to the table.
Philadelphia 76ers guard Seth Curry played for the Dallas Mavericks in the 2019-20 season before being sent to Philadelphia in a draft night trade in November in exchange for Josh Richardson. The Sixers have reaped the benefit of having Curry on their roster to space the floor for the offense to flow a bit better.
As he makes his return to Dallas on Monday, Curry is excited to see some of those faces he grew to know during his time there.
“It’ll be a fun game,” he said. “Good matchup, two good teams. I don’t know how many fans they have or whatever, but it’s always good to be back and see some familiar faces and just try to get another win.”
The Sixers and the Mavericks matched up in Philadelphia on Feb. 25. Curry scored 15 points on 6-for-9 shooting, and he knocked down all three of his 3s in the win.
Afterward, he threw shade at the Mavericks saying they made a “bad business decision” by letting him go to Philadelphia, but all of that is done with now. It’s just basketball at this point.
“Nothing special, just basketball,” Curry finished.
Tipoff from American Airlines Center is set for 7:30 p.m. EDT.
