5. Seth Curry
After two other teams essentially gave up on him, the Phoenix Suns followed suit by giving up on Seth Curry without giving him a real chance. He only played two games for the Suns in the 2014-15 season and didn’t get a fighting chance to prove himself until he left Phoenix for the Kings, where he averaged 16 minutes a game over 44 games.
As Steph Curry’s brother and Dell Curry’s son, it’s hard to see why teams didn’t give Seth more of a chance with his shooting prowess, but once teams finally did, he made his mark as a solid scoring option and even more than just a shooter. He went on to average as high as 15 points per game (just last season) and hover between 40 and 45 percent from three.
Given the Kings signed him in free agency for two years, $2 million, it wasn’t a matter of being difficult to retain him. While Curry is currently a much better player now than he was then, if the Suns had only given him any chance at all, they would have seen the talent he possessed and the role he could have played for them later down the line.
