The Detroit Pistons managed to squeak into the NBA Playoffs but in their four games against the Milwaukee Bucks, it was obvious they have a LONG way to go if they truly want to compete in the Eastern Conference.
That being said, it will be an interesting offseason for the Pistons as they look to improve their roster as much as possible so they can avoid being a lower seed this coming season.
According to a report from James Edwards III of The Athletic, the Pistons are targeting Seth Curry as a potential free agent addition.
From The Athletic:
“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.
Curry is in the midst of what is on pace to be a significant postseason run with the Trail Blazers, but once that’s over, the soon-to-be 29-year-old will be occupied figuring out his future. He’ll be a focal point of free agency once the first, second and, possibly, third wave of free-agent targets dwindle.”
Curry, who is 28, could be signed to be the Pistons backup point guard.
Now, let’s not get crazy, Seth is not in the same world as his brother Stephen Curry when it comes to overall play, but he can certainly shoot the ball.
In fact, over his first 192 games in the NBA, Seth is shooting 43.9% from beyond the arc which happens to be slightly better than his brother Stephen, who is a 43.6% three-point shooter in his career.
In 74 games (2 starts) with the Portland Trail Blazers this season, Seth is averaging 7.9 points in 18.9 minutes of action.
