The 32-year-old combo guard finished the 2022-2023 season with the Brooklyn Nets, once again hitting over 40 percent from behind the three-point line, a feat he has accomplished every single season of his career. He is a jaw-dropping 43.5% shooter from downtown in 438 games throughout his career.
Curry’s minutes fell last season with the Nets as he lost a step in terms of his on-ball creation and defense. He may not be the high-minute contributor in the playoffs he was a few seasons ago with the Philadelphia 76ers.
That doesn’t really matter for the Washington Wizards. Curry’s ability to space the floor, play both guard positions, and operate on-ball or off-ball can be crucial skills for any rebuilding team. He is known as a good team player and veteran who can contribute as a locker-room presence as well.
Curry is an unrestricted free agent who made around $ 8 million last season. It is hard to imagine him getting more guaranteed annual salary than that for next season. He might be gettable with taxpayer mid-level exception. Plus, if he proves he can still contribute to a playoff team, he will be very tradeable on that contract come the trade deadline.
