Seth Curry is going to be signing with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to separate reports.
Curry, who has been playing with the Golden State Warriors’ NBA Development League affiliate in Santa Cruz, was an undrafted rookie out of Duke this summer and was among the final cuts at the end of the preseason.
News of the signing first broke Saturday night during the Charlotte Bobcats’ loss to the Utah Jazz, when Dell Curry—the father of Seth and Golden State Warriors’ star Stephen Curry—said during the broadcast that Seth was going to Memphis.
Stephanie Ready, a former coach who is now part of the Bobcats’ broadcast team, said via Twitter:
Dell Curry just announced that his 2nd son Seth has signed today with The Memphis Grizzlies! Congrats Seth! Congrats Curry Family!

Ready, interestingly enough, has her own ties to the D-League—she became the first woman to coach a men’s professional sports team when she was an assistant coach for the Greenville Groove from 2001-03. Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial-Appeal confirmed the report via Twitter Sunday morning:
Confirmed earlier reports that Seth Curry will arrive in Memphis on Monday when he is expected to sign a deal with Grizzlies, per source.
