Seth Curry Wants to Play for the Charlotte Bobcats

His older brother, Steph, once said the same thing (before he became a hero in The Bay, and fell madly in love with the Warriors’ fanbase). Now, former Duke standout Seth Curry — who went unpicked in the 2013 NBA Draft — is claiming he’d like to play for his hometown Charlotte Bobcats. Per the Sporting News: “For Seth Curry, son of a former Hornets sharpshooter, nothing would be better than to stay in Charlotte and play for the hometown Bobcats. ‘It’s my home,’ Curry said. ‘This is where I grew up. I would love to come back here and play.’ Although his preference is obvious, there is no certainty Curry will end up with the Bobcats, who will become the Hornets again in 2014-15. Curry is set to workout for the Bobcats in August, after passing up their Summer League offer and missing draft workouts because of a stress fracture in his right shin that required surgery. He already has training camp invites from the Wolves, Spurs and Warriors. […] Charlotte could certainly use someone who plays Curry’s brand of basketball. The Bobcats shot 33.5 percent from the 3-point line as a team, and Ben Gordon was the only full-time player to average better than 35 percent, at 38.7 percent. Gerald Henderson, also a former Duke player, is more of a slasher and midrange shooter. He attempted only 102 3-point shots in his first three NBA seasons combined. While he nearly matched that total with 100 attempts in 2012-13, he only shot 33.0 percent from three, which is below average for a starting NBA shooting guard. ‘They have a lot of guys who can slash and create,’ Curry said of the Bobcats. ‘They have a few shooters, guys who can not down shots consistently, but I think they need more shooters. I can fill that role and be a guard who comes off the bench and scores.’ Curry created offense in his senior season at Duke with a shin injury so serious he even considered redshirting, something he called a ‘last resort.’ Coach Mike Krzyzewski allowed Curry to miss practices so he would be fresh for games. It worked. Curry played out a successful senior season that ended with an Elite Eight loss to Louisville.”
