    6th man backing up bev at 17m per like tristan and enes. having a max player off the bench has proven successful for okc and cavs.

    I kind of like the fact that he's in the shadow of Steph...he's worked hard to stick in the league because of it, so I feel like he's going to keep pushing himself....if anyone can provide insight on how to make a large leap, it's steph and he's going to have him in his corner 24/7.

    He's a very very good shooter. I'd like to have him on the bench. But if we're in a place where we have 5-6m in cap space and we're offering it to Seth Curry I think that means we've done really poorly this offseason.

    From the looks of it, free agency is going to be expensive and we have starter positions to fill. Realistically, we need a PF that can shoot, a C with experience, a starter/backup PG that is good at passing the ball and then we should look at these things. I don't know that there will be money left over after that.

    Good idea. Steph might take it easy on us if his brother is here.

    With the rising caps, 4 years 5-8 mill per with team option on 4th would be a total win. If what I read is correct, the cap will go up again after this balloon of $107 mill. Locking up a young but capable rotational player into their prime at less than 1/10th and possibly 1/20th of the cap would be a huge win. At that point you can develop or trade. Like Chandler Parsons on that contract we had him, that was a great contract! Morey didn't have to let him go but at the same time he had to let him go.

    So yeah, I'm on board. I'm also greedy and would take him into his next contract on a lowball contract.

    Again I think we need to pick up golden state shooting coach. Everyone on that team has developed a shot except Bogut.

    I'm in favor of signing him. We are in need of players who can shoot. Seth can. He has also shown signs of playmaking ability. He'd be a great spark off the bench. I think he's got enough motivation to become a more complete player and start. Buy low for sure.

    He had a nice stretch at the end of the season. I mean it cant take more than 2 million to sign him. With him and Beasley on the bench you could do a lot worse tbh. Do we have the bi-annual exception if we go over the max for our other deals or did we use it last season?

    He turned down 1 million next year by opting out of the Kings contract. My guess is he'll get something along the lines of 3yr/12 million or even 3/15 with a team option.

    he has always been known as a dead eye shooter. if he maintains his 45 percent three he will go down as one of the top five shooters of all time

    and isn't the rockets whole offense predicated on the three ball? Seriously... all we do is jack up threes but no one on our squad can shoot.

    sign him already

    Troy Daniels would be better for this team.

    Will Mrs. Curry be at the game grinding? If so, I'm all for this acquisition.

    I don't think he's a point guard. He doesn't seem to be able to do anything well but shoot. Ding ding ding; we need shooters. And it doesn't matter if he can't dribble to get his own shot because MDA is now our coach and his offense is predicated on shooting off the pass.

    Sign the kid and add several more...shooters!

    I disagree. Curry can handle the ball and dish the rock. Had a 15 assist game somewhere last season. If Daniels shot isn't falling he's hot garbage. But I wouldn't be opposed to bringing him back either.

    He's capable of running the offense if need be, but understand the point your making, agree.

    Seth over Troy definitely, but only as 3rd string.
