2018 Fantasy Outlook
Missing the entire 2017-18 season due to a left tibia injury that ultimately required surgery resulted in Curry settling for a modest two-year, $5.6 million contract this offseason. Those figures could ultimately render him one of the steals of the offseason on a dollar-for-dollar basis, that is, if Curry can return to the level of play he exhibited with the Mavericks during the 2016-17 campaign. The 27-year-old averaged 12.8 points (on 48.1 percent shooting, including an outstanding 42.5 percent from three-point range), 2.7 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals over 70 games (42 starts) during that career-best season, putting together a few performances reminiscent of his decorated older brother along the way. If he’s back at full health, Curry’s outside shooting prowess could provide the Trail Blazers’ with a lethal backcourt trio and give the second unit some badly needed scoring punch. For the moment, given the relative uncertainty regarding his conditioning and burst after missing a full year, Curry’s Fantasy stock remains up in the air, with preseason games likely to go a long way toward offering further clarity on his status.

Curry agreed Monday to a two-year, $5.6 million contract with the Trail Blazers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
After missing the entire 2017-18 season in Dallas following surgery to repair the tibia in his left leg, Curry will join Portland and look to pick up where he left off prior to suffering the injury. Curry will give the Trail Blazers another strong outside shooter off the bench, with the 27-year-old offering the ability to swing to either backcourt spot behind starters Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. The deal guarantees Curry $2.75 million in 2018-19 and includes a $2.75 player option for the second year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Curry was one of the few nice surprises for the Mavericks during the 2016-17 campaign after signing just a two-year, $5.9 million contract in the offseason. With injuries piling up in the backcourt to guys like Deron Williams and J.J. Barea, Curry ended up getting a ton of run and even started 42 of the 70 contests he played in. He nearly doubled his minutes with 29.0 per game compared to just 15.7 a year prior with the Kings. That resulted in career highs across the board of 12.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.0 three-pointers. He shot a blistering 42.5 percent from the three-point line, which will likely be one of his main contributions during the upcoming campaign. The Mavericks drafted point guard Dennis Smith with the ninth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and he's fully expected to jump in as a starter immediately. That sends Curry back into a bench role where he'll have to fight off Yogi Ferrell and J.J. Barea for playing time. Curry's breakout campaign should still lock him as a member of coach Rick Carlisle's regular rotation, but with the Mavericks likely opting to give their prized rookie Smith as much run as possible, it's going to come with a significant decrease to Curry's role. Curry will still come off the bench as an all-around scoring threat, especially as a floor-spacing three-point shooter, though he likely won't come close to the 29.0 minutes he averaged in 2016-17.
A journeyman for his first two NBA seasons, Curry made brief cameos with the Grizzlies, Cavaliers and Suns while spending the majority of his time in the D-League. He was finally given a chance by the Kings last season, appearing in a career-high 44 games and making nine starts near the end of the season. Curry's role was inconsistent for much of the year, so it's difficult to take anything away from his season-long averages of 6.8 points, 1.5 assists and 1.4 rebounds per game. But over the Kings' final 11 games, Curry averaged 29.7 minutes, putting up 15.2 points, 3.8 assists and 2.7 rebounds while shooting 46.8 percent from the field and an even more impressive 48.4 percent from three-point range. The late surge was enough to impress the Mavs, who signed Curry as a free agent this offseason to provide depth at both guard spots. Curry will play primarily off the ball, but he has experience at point guard and turned in a 15-assist game against the Suns last season, showcasing the playmaking ability that was often on display at Duke. While the 26-year-old is an intriguing player to keep an eye on, the Mavs are stocked with steady, if not spectacular, veteran guards, which may prevent Curry from playing enough minutes to achieve fantasy relevancy in most single-season formats.
Curry spent his first two seasons being shuttled back and forth between Cleveland, Memphis, Phoenix, and their D-League affiliates, never earning more than a seven minutes per game in any of his three stints in the NBA. He was able to turn in an All-Summer League Team performance, averaging 24.3 points per game and demonstrating an inside-outside scoring ability and confidence that he had yet to show in his first two seasons. Now armed with a two-year, $2 million contract from Kings, he has the opportunity to step into a potential rotation role behind Rajon Rondo and Darren Collison. If Curry can carry his scoring touch and ball handling skills over into November, he should have a solid chance to be a rotational asset for Sacramento this season, but it's unlikely he earns enough minutes to be used in anything but deep leagues.
Curry, brother of starting point guard Stephen Curry, is an undrafted free agent working on a non-guaranteed contract. He played both guard positions during his college career, though shooting guard is his more natural spot. Curry can dial it up from long distance. He made 44 percent of his three-pointers at Duke last year, but he doesn't have a ton of athleticism. If he's going to make it in the NBA, it will be as a three-point marksman.
