The Portland Trail Blazers are still engaged in a competitive NBA Playoffs series with the Denver Nuggets, but that doesn’t mean other teams aren’t eyeing their players for this summer. Backup guard Seth Curry is one of the Detroit Pistons’ free-agency targets, according to James L. Edwards III of The Athletic (subscription required):
Steph Curry’s little bro, Seth — a deadeye shooter in his own right but not quite the same breaker of boundaries as big bro — will be a free agent this offseason. The Pistons, who will be in the market come July 1 to sign a backup point guard and bolster their 3-point shooting, have Curry on their target list, per league sources.
Edwards also spoke to an agent who gave possible insight into what Curry could command contract-wise this summer:
Based on a conversation with an NBA agent, Curry may be able to get somewhere between $5 million to $8 million annually. That makes sense when you factor in the tax for being a middle-of-the-road franchise and Curry’s skill as one of the league’s top 3-point shooters.
Curry averaged 7.9 points while shooting 45 percent from 3-point range this year with Portland.
