There was a flurry of minor free-agent activity on Tuesday, with Summer League star Seth Curry getting a two-year, $2 million deal from the Sacramento Kings, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski. The contract is fully guaranteed for both seasons with a player option on the second year.
The younger brother of Stephen Curry, Seth led the Las Vegas Summer League in scoring, putting up 25 points per game for the New Orleans Pelicans. It was initially thought that Curry was going to sign with the Pelicans, but the Kings likely made a better offer. Sacramento needed more shooting, so nabbing the younger Curry makes sense.
New Orleans will be getting a new player though, as the Pellies are finalizing a one-year, veteran’s minimum contract with Kendrick Perkins, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. Perkins can’t really play anymore, but he’ll be expected to be a strong presence in the locker room.
Cavaliers Snare Richard Jefferson
But don’t worry, Jefferson notified Mavericks owner Mark Cuban about the switch. Jefferson will provide more depth on the wing for the Cavaliers, although the team is still discussing a new contract with J.R. Smith.
Bucks Finalizing Deal With Chris Copeland
Copeland made waves with the New York Knicks in 2012-13 and showed some positive flashes in his first season with the Indiana Pacers in 2013-14, but the forward was awful last year, shooting 36.1 percent overall and 31.1 percent from three before his season was cut short when he was stabbed in New York City. Milwaukee is hoping he can find his touch again and add some much-needed shooting to the roster after trading away Jared Dudley.
