Sacramento Kings guard Seth Curry will decline his $1 million player option for the 2016-17 season and become a restricted free agent, league sources told The Vertical.Curry has until Saturday to formalize his option decision.
Curry, 25, averaged 6.8 points, 1.5 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 44 games this season and established himself as an NBA rotational guard. He shot 45.1 percent from 3-point range for the season.
Curry, the younger brother of Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, closed the season strong, averaging 16.4 points and 5.3 assists in his last seven games of the season. He had a 20-point, 15-assist performance in a win over Phoenix on April 11.
After going unselected in the 2013 draft out of Duke, Curry played in the NBA Development League and on 10-day contracts with Cleveland, Memphis and Phoenix. Curry found staying power last off season, when his play with New Orleans’ summer-league team led to a guaranteed two-year contract with Sacramento.
