The Curry family is officially taking over Northern California! Stephen Curry's younger brother, Seth Curry has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Sacramento Kings. The younger Curry has been playing in the NBA's Summer League.
On Tuesday, the 28-year-old Golden State Warriors champ congratulated his 24 year-old brother on Twitter saying, "Let's goooooo! He's been patient and worked so hard to get here. got his Foot in the door now it's time to go! Love you bro!" Here are 5 things to know about the newest Curry in town!
1. Strong Roots: The Curry family is one that has a tight bond. Earlier this year, Seth wrote a piece about his older brother's MVP Season. Curry says family support and how he and Stephen were raised are what keep the brothers grounded amid their successes: "It's just being raised the right way, having the right morals. Our parents, if we were famous or whatever, taught us to know what we have around us. Growing up in an NBA family with my dad and kind of having that kind of fame, to a smaller degree, kind of trained us for knowing which people are around for the right reasons, so what Steph has been doing recently isn't completely new. It's what my sister and mom and I have been trained for our whole lives. We have a small family circle and I think that's the best thing. It makes it a lot easier."

2. Cool Uncle: The world's fascinated by Riley Curry's adorable and hilarious antics, which clearly run in the family. Seth has shared some adorable photos of him and his niece, including this one of the pair wearing mustaches. Also, some might not realize is that Riley Curry became an early pro at interviews thanks to Uncle Seth. In early January, she popped into one of her uncle's interviews. As the interview progresses, Riley slowly appears from behind the chairs, and then comes up next to Seth's side before joining him in the interview when he puts her on his lap. We're not sure when Riley will become a correspondent for the NBA, but we're pretty sure she's getting some great training along the way!
3. Be Yourself: Seth told NBA TV that the best advice he's ever received is to simply "be yourself, don't try to measure yourself up to anybody else, just go out there, and try to maximize your own potential. Be the best you, that you can be."
4 Like Father, Like Sons: Similar to older brother Steph, Seth is also following in his father's NBA footsteps. Dell Curry played ten seasons for the Charlotte Hornets. While at Liberty University and Duke, Seth Curry wore his father's number 30 on his jersey. Steph also chose to play with 30 on his collegiate and professional basketball jersey. Both Seth and Steph even overlapped a season in high school and set records at their high school, Charlotte Christian High School.
5 Outdoorsman: When he's off the court, Seth loves fishing and golfing! Curry regularly posts photos of his fishing adventures on his Instagram. As far as traveling, Seth revealed that if he could go anywhere in the world, he'd love to go to the Caribbean!
