Former Duke star and current Santa Cruz Warrior Seth Curry is only three games into his career in the NBA Development League, and he already has people clamoring for the Golden State Warriors, Santa Cruz’s parent club, to promote him.
So far, Curry has averaged 23.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 9.0 assists, and 1.7 steals while shooting 49.0% from the field and 36.8% from beyond the arc. In the season opener, he set a Warrior record by scoring 36 points against the Austin Toros.
Santa Cruz has been thriving amidst his hot start, as they currently sit at 3-0 to start the year, with all of their wins being by double-digits.
There is currently no real indication of how long it would be or how much more Curry would have to perform to earn a spot with Golden State, but you’d have to think they couldn’t ignore his success for much longer if this performance continues. As it stands their backup guards aren’t looking too hot:
Toney Douglas – 16.0 mpg, 6.4 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 1.6 apg, 11.0 PER
Kent Bazemore – 7.2 mpg, 2.7 ppg, 1.1 rpg, 0.5 apg, 6.7 PER
Nemanja Nedovic – 6.5 mpg, 1.2 ppg, 0.6 rpg, 0.5 apg, -0.7 PER
