5. Seth Curry

Curry played a season and a half for the Sixers starting in 2020. He averaged 13.6 points, 3.3 assists, 2.8 rebounds, and 0.8 steals in 31.4 minutes per game over 102 contests. The veteran guard shot north of 50 percent from three in the 2021 playoffs, but the 76ers were knocked out by the Hawks in the second round.

The 33-year-old has struggled to stay healthy in recent years, but he remains an elite shooter. His career 43.2 percent from 3-point range is the seventh-highest in NBA history. Curry rarely misses, and the Sixers desperately need floor spacers.

The 6’1 guard signed a two-year deal with the Mavericks in the 2023 offseason. The second-year is non-guaranteed, and Dallas traded him to the Hornets in the P.J. Washington deal. Charlotte is rebuilding and has no use for the veteran guard. Curry could be bought out and help any contender.

Former Sixers head coach Doc Rivers is his father-in-law, so the Bucks figure to challenge the Philadelphia 76ers to sign Seth Curry. The veteran guard could play a role under head coach Nick Nurse and may prioritize playing time. The Sixers need his shooting, but winning the race for his signature won’t be easy.

If Philadelphia decides to go in a different direction, there are several options worth exploring.
