The re-shaped Sixers begin the 2020-21 regular season in less than a month, and arguably their most important addition of the offseason looks like he's already locked in.
Seth Curry, who the Sixers acquired when they sent Josh Richardson to the Mavericks, is one of the best three-point shooters in the league and also a versatile creator who can handle the ball.
He's basically something the team has needed, badly, for years now, and in a workout posted this week by NBA trainer Tyler Relph, Curry looks like an absolute revelation for Sixers fans.
The minute-long workout clip is dropping jaws across the internet, for good reason. Check this out:
Folks, Seth Curry seems to be good. Very, very good.
The Sixers have had shooters during the recent competitive Embiid-Simmons years - J.J. Redick was deadly, Marco Belinelli ran wild, Furkan Korkmaz can catch fire - but they've never had someone like Curry.
Curry can create his own looks because he's a threat at multiple levels, he has a nasty handle, and his shot is just so buttery smooth. I have a feeling Curry is primed for a big year in a big market, and he knows it.
For quick statistical reference: the Sixers traded in Richardson, who shot 34.6% on catch-and-shoot threes last season, for Curry, who shot 48.1% on catch-and-shoot threes last season... and Curry also shot 7% better on pull-up twos than Richardson.
He probably won't be scoring 20 points per game, but Curry is going to be a hugely valuable addition to a Sixers team looking to return to Eastern Conference relevance this year.
