How Steph reacted when brother Seth was traded to 76ers

Warriors

Seth Curry in July 2019 signed a four-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks worth $32 million.

The 30-year-old had a terrific 2019-20 season for coach Rick Carlisle, averaging 12.4 points, while shooting 45.2 percent from 3-point range on 5.0 attempts per game.

But he won't be playing for the Mavs this season, because two weeks ago he was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers. And it turns out Warriors superstar Steph Curry was with Seth when the deal went down.

"I was sitting next to my brother -- on a little mini-vacation -- and he was kind of on the phone," Steph recently explained to Complex's Zach Frydenlund. "And he's so quiet, we didn't really know. He was kind of hinting, and talking about the trades and stuff like that.

"And it's kind of just out of the blue, because we were following the draft. He was sitting down at the table right next to me and he was like, 'It's happening.' I'm like, 'Wait, what'd you say?' And he's like, 'I just got traded to Philly.' 

"And then the tweet came in like maybe literally 45 seconds later. That was a surprising one. We know how fast stuff can happen in the league, especially around draft night."

Steph and Seth made history when they faced off against each other in the 2019 Western Conference finals.

 

It's unclear when they will do battle this season, as the schedule has not yet been released.
