While this can only be classified as a rumor, there appears to be some smoke billowing out of a potential 10-day contract between the Cleveland Cavaliers and guard Seth Curry. Initial reports of Curry joining the wine and gold started to creep out early Wednesday morning and have picked up some steam since.
Seth Curry 10 day contract with Cavs!

Seth Curry has signed a 10-day contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Leung’s tweet suggests that Curry has already inked a contract, but there’s been no announcement from the team. Curry, brother of Warriors star Stephen Curry, had a brief stint with the Grizzlies earlier this season after going undrafted this past summer. Curry was also in camp with the Warriors in the fall, but he failed to make the opening-night roster. The 6-foot-2-inch guard is averaging 19.4 points and 5.9 assists in 35.3 minutes per game for the Santa Cruz Warriors. He was also the namesake for (Grantland’s) Shane Ryan’s first home as a blogger—so there’s that.
The Cavs have a full 15-man roster, though half of the 15 are experiencing some sort of ailment1. They could terminate their 10-day contract with forward Shane Edwards to make room for Curry or could simply wait for Edwards’ deal to expire this Friday night. With expectations of Kyrie Irving (who played with Curry at Duke in 2010-11) missing the rest of the regular season with a biceps injury, Curry would provide much-needed depth behind Jarrett Jack, Dion Waiters, Matthew Dellavedova and CJ Miles.
