In July 2015, Seth Curry signed a two-year deal with the Kings.
This past summer, he opted out and inked a two-year contract worth nearly $6 million with the Mavs.
He recently was a podcast guest with The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, who explained that Curry turned down guaranteed money from the Warriors over the past couple seasons.
"I couldn't care less about what people think, to be honest," Curry said. "It was just about what I think and creating my own path. Kind of a similar situation to what I was going through heading into college, not really wanting to step right into Steph's shadow once I finally get my shot.
"And obviously I want the best situation possible. They kind of had a set team there and they knew their rotations and things like that. So I wanted a chance to grow my game and get better and step into the best situation possible for my career going forward."
Seth is averaging 8.7 points and 2.7 assists over 24.7 minutes per game so far this season.
Against Steph and the Warriors last week, the combo guard registered nine points, five rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes. He made just one of his seven 3-point attempts.
In 2013-14, Seth averaged 19.7 points and 5.8 assists over 38 games with Golden State's D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz.
Last year in Sacramento under head coach George Karl, Curry appeared in 33 of the Kings' first 71 games, averaging just 4.0 points and 0.8 assists in 11 minutes per contest.
Over the final 11 games (nine starts), he racked up 15.2 points and 3.8 assists per night, while shooting over 48 percent from deep.
Wojnarowski shared some interesting information on the podcast:
"People there (in Sacramento) told me, and at first I didn't believe it because it sounds like an excuse somebody would make for somebody, but he's (George Karl) a (North) Carolina guy and you're a Duke guy. And some people there told me that he had some preconceived ideas about what Duke pros were like -- that they didn't make it or they ended up not being what people said they would be -- and he would say it out loud. And people there would hear it. Did you ever hear it?"
"I did," Curry answered. "It felt like every single day he would make a little Duke jab, or say something about Duke-Carolina. I'm like, 'Wow, this is happening every single day, this might be a little real.' But I don't know if that's the reason why he didn't play me on a consistent basis...
"I used to hear it and I used to hear people talk about how serious he was about it. It was a tough time early on in that year."
