5. Seth Curry

Curry is unquestionably one of the league’s best shooters, but he has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career. The 6’2 guard has not played more than 64 games in a season since 2019, and he has played over 70 just twice in his ten NBA seasons. Will that limit his market?

The 32-year-old guard needs to decide what to prioritize as an unrestricted free agent this summer. He just finished a four-year $32 million contract, and Curry could easily get a similar deal on the open market.

The teams with cap space are all in various stages of a rebuild. The 6’2 guard could look to get a mid-level exception from a contender and try to win his first championship. Does he want to be on a winning team or make the maximum amount of money?

Seth Curry joined Kevin Durant in Brooklyn in the James Harden trade. During his 80 games with the Nets over the last year and a half, he averaged 10.6 points and 1.9 assists in 22.3 minutes per game on 42.7 percent shooting from 3-point range. Curry is going to hit shots and defenders have to respect him, which only opens more space for KD and Devin Booker to attack.

Could Curry join the Phoenix Suns this offseason? He will have plenty of suitors in free agency, and it will all depend on where the 32-year-old wants to play next season.
