Seth Curry Contract with the Sixers : Sixers send Josh Richardson and 36th pick to acquire Seth Curry from the Mavericks
Daryl Morey has been one busy man. Yesterday he made two big trades as his first actions as President of Basketball Operations of the Sixers. First, he traded Al Horford, a 2025 protected first-round pick, the 34th pick in the 2020 draft, and the rights to Serbian Vasilije Mimic to the Thunder in exchange for Danny Green and Terrance Ferguson.
However, acquiring just one sharpshooter wasn’t enough for the Sixers. The second trade of the evening brought them one of the highest % shooters in the league currently. The Sixers Josh Richardson and their 36th pick for Seth Curry.
What is Seth Curry set to earn with the Sixers?

This trade seems like a win-win for both the parties involved. Josh Richardson provides the athletic and more defense-oriented player the Mavs were looking for.
Seth Curry and Danny Green would together provide the perimeter shooting that the Sixers were lacking all throughout the last few campaigns. Maybe with the guidance of Doc Rivers, the leadership of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, and the newly acquired pieces, the Sixers and their ‘Process’ can finally show some results.
Mavs were determined to get more athletic and better defensively this offseason. Josh Richardson checks those boxes and gives them some more playmaking. Seth Curry gives the Sixers an elite shooter who happens to be married to the coach’s daughter. https://t.co/bcUgVtmbaa

The Eastern Conference is gearing up to be the best it has been in quite a while, and the Sixers are ready to pose as much of a challenge as anyone else there.
