Seth Curry in the NBA Draft or UnDrafted?
First of all I hate Duke, so be clear on that. I think if anybody picks him up in the Draft it would be a steal, the guy has a shooting talent no doubt , yet also he has proven to be a pretty good ball handler as well. So it kinda puzzles me why this dude is no even listed in the 2nd round of most mock drafts. No to compare him to his bro, but just like him the guy has a crazy shooting range so he's one of those guys that 30+ feet away from the basket you are going to have to gaurd him. Sure some players have an off night but this guy usually don't so he's consistant as they come and he can put the ball on the floor and get to the basket. I know he's not real tall and his defence needs some work but if this guy could be even a half of what his bro can do I see him as a steal in the 2nd round.
I think he's a really good talent that should be picked late in the 1st round or early 2nd but really might not get drafted at all. So what are your thoughts on Seth Curry?
His ball handling isn't up to par for a pg, I think if he made it to the nba he would have a daniel gibson type of role and keeping that role really just depends on if he hits shots or not. End of bench guy on a good team or end of rotation on a bad team.
I really can't call it. I personally don't see why he would be drafted other than his family pedigree. Depending on a teams need and if they like him enough maybe. But I don't think he will get drafted. I do think he will be on an NBA team though at the beginning of the NBA season next year due to his family name and the fact he played at Duke. John Scheyer and Curry have a similar game except Scheyer had 3 inches on Seth and he still didn't get drafted. He was invited to the Summer League though and I think Curry will be invited as well.
personally, i have him on my own mock in the 2nd round. i believe i have him being taken by the sixers to play back-up minutes to Jrue Holiday. having said that, i dont expect the minutes to be a lot and expect him to be playing his SG position and Turner to be playing the point.
curry does have a shooting but the reasons why he's not projected in a lot of mocks was because he doesnt have stand out speed, length, or athletic ability. his handles are okay for a 2 guard but not a lead. it has been seen what he can do as a point guard and his game just diminishes. you can tell its not his natural position nor would he be comfortable running a team like one. and those are what hinders him at offense, the side of the floor that is supposed to be appealing. having said all of that, i would still like him in a defined role in limitted minutes. i like his composure, his shooting ability and court awareness on proper spacing.
He will probably be picked in the draft based upon the production of his brother...silly yes but one team will fall for it.
I'm pretty sure everything we're saying about Seth was said about his brother Steph when he was coming out. He's not tall enough, his play goes down when he has to be the PG, doesn't play defense, not strong or quick enough to compete at the next level...... Hey guys, how well has Steph been playing this year anyway?
Just because he isn't a megatalent doesn't mean a team won't give him a shot in the second round. There will always be a need in the NBA for consistent shooters. As long as you can knock down the corner 3 consistently, you can find a place.
His play goes down when he plays pg? Steph was phenomenal with the ball in his hands at Davidson in both his sophmore and junior seasons. Seth's handle isn't even 75-80 percent of what his brothers is. If he had a better handle it would probably enhance his chances of playing a role in the league.
Steph was working with CP3 on hus point skills leading up to the draft, now Steph was a far better talent, but the Curry family has connections and Seth will make the most of his chance.
ability to play the point is what seperated Steph from his brother. seth like his brother transitioned in his junior year from and played PG more than SG and his game regressed.
when Steph did it at davidson, his assist numbers spiked up from 2.9 to 5.6 and his scoring output increased as well from 25.9 to 28.6. sure his TOs increased with to 3.7 from 2.6, but over-all he showed that his production increased and had the ability to play point full time.
seth on the other hand, had a very slight increase in assists from 2.0 to 2.4 while his TO's saw a similar spike to his brother from 0.9 to 2.0. the only really increase he had on his game was his scoring output which went to 13.2 from 9.0. he was able to score more with the ball being in his hands more, but apart from that, he didnt really do more in the position. his turnover as expected from a lead guard who would handle the rock more.
if seth was able to show similar ability to play the point, then im sure some team would take him in the first round. i mean, Nate Wolters or Erick Green arent bubble firsts because they are seen as undersized shooting guards. they are seen as players who can transition to PG in the NBA due to them having individual success as primary ball handlers in the NCAA.
I think he has a shot to get picked up in the 2nd round by a team that has a primary ball handler that he can play with. Like miami with LeBron, Houston with Harden, Philly with holiday and turner. Personally, I think Miami makes a lot of sense. They just need guys to keep the floor spaced and hit open jumpers. I think he would do a better job of that than Cole.
For what it's worth Coach K said that Seth Curry would have been one of the leading scorers in the nation if he didn't play on a stress fracture in his shin the entire season.
It'd be interesting to see how we would have viewed him if he was healthy all season.
I think he goes in the second round - someone will take a chance on him
You know what they say shooters always find a job in the NBA.
He is definitely worth using a second round pick on. He plays similar to his brother even though is no where near as athletic or as good of a shooter but he has a good ability to shoot off a dribble. Now a days it's harder to make it as a PG with all the good point guards in the NBA now a days. I wouldn't say he's too good to go undrafted but for a team who'd might need an extra PG I don't see why to not use a pick on him.
He gets drafted. Curry and Duke name are both big. And yes lots of problems were pointed out about Stephen when he was in the draft. Now he is clearly a max guy if you set aside the ankle issues.
I see him in europe, but somebody would probably pick a scrub on a non guaranteed contract, ID is too big.
If the other griffin is drafted, the other curry should be without a doubt.
One thing I have noticed from these playoffs...every team needs 1-2 guys who can just flat out shoot. Curry can do that. I watch teams like the Brooklyn struggle with Wallace and Evans out there basically not even needing to be covered. I see the Grizzlies struggle like hell to get points because they can't stretch the floor. I see the Celtics just completely have no ability to do anything with the ball. Everyone needs players who can knock down 3s. Curry needs to go to a good team, that needs a role player. Not a bad team that will think he is anything more than he is.
How this is going to work out forcseth because he just had surgery and is going to miss all the predraft workouts and draft altogether
