The Kings and free-agent guard Seth Curry have agreed on a two-year contract worth $2 million. The second year is a player option.
Curry, 24, is the younger brother of MVP Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.
During the Las Vegas Summer League, Curry averaged a league-leading 24.3 points playing for New Orleans. The Kings will look for perimeter shooting from the 6-foot-2, 185-pound Curry.
After leaving Duke in 2013, Curry wasn’t drafted. He has spent most of his pro career in the NBA Development League, where he has been an All-Star twice. He has appeared in four NBA games: one with Memphis and one with Cleveland in 2013-14 and two with Phoenix last season. He had 10-day contracts with those teams.
Never miss a local story.
Curry is the second player to strike a deal with the Kings since the end of summer league. On Monday, the Kings and forward Quincy Acy agreed to a two-year contract with a second-year player option.
Acy played with the Kings during the 2013-14 season after coming from Toronto in the Rudy Gay trade. The Kings dealt him to New York last August, and he averaged 5.9 points and 4.4 rebounds in 68 games with the Knicks.
The Kings will have 13 players on guaranteed contracts once the additions of Curry, Acy and Caron Butler become official. Eric Moreland’s deal becomes guaranteed Aug. 1. Second-year guard David Stockton’s contract does not become guaranteed unless he is on the Kings’ roster after Jan. 10.
Teams are allowed 15 guaranteed contracts on their roster.
