Grizzlies introduce new point guard Seth Curry

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - The Memphis Grizzlies signed free agent rookie point guard Seth Curry Tuesday. Curry is the son of former NBA 6th Man of the Year Dell Curry, and the younger brother of Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry.

Curry was signed to compete for minutes at point guard with the struggling Nick Calathes. Curry played 12 games in the NBA Development League as part of the Santa Cruz Warriors, scoring 21.3 points per game and dishing out 7.8 assists per game.

Curry did have some startling turnover numbers, but will be looked upon as a scorer first in Memphis. The Grizzlies are second to last in the NBA in 3-point field goals per game, and have needed a shooter to help space the floor since the season began.

Curry will wear #1 and suit up in his first game Thursday on the road in Houston, as the Grizzlies take on the Rockets.
