Curry is the son of former National Basketball Association (NBA) player Dell Curry and former Virginia Tech women's volleyball player Sonya Curry. He grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, while his father, Dell, played for the Charlotte Hornets. As a child, Curry's father would take him and his older brother, Stephen, to his games where they would often shoot around with the team in warm-ups. Curry is a 2008 graduate of Charlotte Christian School where he was a three-year starter for the Knights' basketball team. His senior year, Curry averaged 22.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists while shooting 52 percent from the field. At the end of the season, he earned all-conference, all-state, and first team SAA All-American accolades.

After high school, Curry chose to attend Liberty University. In his freshman season at Liberty, he led all freshmen nationally in average points per game scored with 20.2 a game. Curry broke the Big South Conference single-season scoring record for a freshman. He wore the jersey number 30 at Liberty, the same number his dad and older brother wore in their careers.
As a redshirt sophomore, Curry was named a starter after a toe injury sidelined Kyrie Irving. In a game against Miami (Ohio), Curry led the team with 17 points on 57% shooting. He scored a season high 22 points against North Carolina on February 9, 2011. On December 29, 2012, he scored a career-high 31 against Santa Clara. At the end of his senior year, Curry was named to the All-ACC first team and was named a second team All-American by Sporting News.
Santa Cruz Warriors (2013–2014)Edit
Curry went undrafted in the 2013 NBA draft. On August 23, 2013, he signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Golden State Warriors. He was, however, later waived by Golden State on October 25, 2013, after appearing in six preseason games.
On November 1, 2013, Curry was acquired by the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League as an affiliate player. On November 22, in his D-League debut, Curry recorded 36 points on 12-of-19 shooting, as well as 6 assists and 3 rebounds.
Memphis Grizzlies (2013–2014)Edit
Return to Santa Cruz (2014)Edit
Four days later, Curry was reacquired by the Santa Cruz Warriors. On February 3, 2014, Curry was named to the Futures All-Star roster for the 2014 NBA D-League All-Star Game.
Cleveland Cavaliers (2014)Edit
On March 21, 2014, Curry signed a 10-day contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The next day, he appeared in his second NBA game, recording three points in nine minutes of action against the Houston Rockets. The Cavaliers decided not to offer Curry a second 10-day contract, and he returned to Santa Cruz the following day. Curry finished the 2013–14 NBA D-League season with averages of 19.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.4 steals in 38 games.
During his time at Santa Cruz, Curry played in the back court with Mychel Thompson. At the same time their respective brothers, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, were playing together in the Golden State backcourt in a tandem nicknamed the "Splash Brothers."
Erie BayHawks (2014–2015)Edit
In July 2014, Curry joined the Orlando Magic for the Orlando Summer League and the Phoenix Suns for the Las Vegas Summer League. On September 29, 2014, he signed with the Magic. On October 7, 2014, Curry's D-League rights were acquired by the Magic's affiliated team, the Erie BayHawks, in a trade with the Santa Cruz Warriors. This was done in preparation for Curry returning to the D-League following training camp, as the Magic were now able to send him to their affiliated team instead of Curry returning to Santa Cruz. As anticipated the Magic waived Curry at the conclusion of training camp on October 25, and five days later he was acquired by the Erie BayHawks for the start of D-League training camp. In his debut for Erie in the team's season opener on November 14, Curry scored 23 points on 9-of-24 shooting in a win over the Idaho Stampede. On February 4, 2015, he was named to the Futures All-Star team for the 2015 NBA D-League All-Star Game for the second time in his career.
Phoenix Suns (2015)Edit
Return to Erie (2015)Edit
After Curry's 10-day contract by the Suns expired on March 21, he returned to the BayHawks. In 43 games for Erie in 2014–15, he averaged 23.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.
Sacramento Kings (2015–2016)Edit
In July 2015, Curry joined the New Orleans Pelicans for the 2015 NBA Summer League. After averaging 24.3 points per game in Las Vegas, Curry earned All-NBA Summer League first team honors. On July 22, he signed a two-year, $2 million guaranteed deal with the Sacramento Kings. Considered a "shooting guard trapped in a point guard's body", Curry's three-point shooting was a key reason the Kings signed him, as outside shooting had long been the Kings' Achilles heel. He made his debut for the Kings on October 30, recording two points, one rebound and one assist in a 132–114 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. On November 28, he scored 9 points on 3-of-4 shooting and 3-of-3 from three-point range in a loss to the Golden State Warriors. On February 26, 2016, Curry played extended minutes in the Kings' 117–107 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers due to starting point guard Rajon Rondo sitting out with an injury. In 26 minutes of action off the bench, he recorded a then career-high 19 points and 4 rebounds. On March 25, he made his first career start, scoring 12 points in 26 minutes against the Phoenix Suns. Three days later, in just his third NBA start, Curry scored a career-high 21 points in a 105–93 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. He matched his career high on April 1, scoring 21 points against the Miami Heat. On April 9, he made a career-high six three-pointers and scored 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting off the bench in a 114–112 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Two days later, he recorded his first career double-double with 20 points and a career-high 15 assists in a career-high 38 minutes of action as the starting point guard, helping the Kings defeat the Phoenix Suns 105–101.
After the 2015–16 season, Curry declined his $1 million player option for the 2016–17 season in order to become a restricted free agent. On June 27, 2016, the Kings tendered a qualifying offer to Curry, but on July 3, the team rescinded their qualifying offer, making Curry an unrestricted free agent.
Dallas Mavericks (2016–2018)Edit
On July 15, 2016, Curry signed with the Dallas Mavericks. He made his debut for the Mavericks in their season opener on October 26 against the Indiana Pacers. In 16 minutes off the bench, he recorded seven points, three rebounds, one assist and three steals in a 130–121 overtime loss. On November 8, he scored a then career-high 23 points in a 109–97 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. He tied that mark on November 21, scoring 23 points with five three-pointers as a starter in a 96–91 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Curry missed four games in early December with a right knee sprain. On January 29, 2017, he had career highs of 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Mavericks to a 105–101 win over San Antonio. On February 24, 2017, he set a new career high with 31 points in a 97–84 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Three days later, he had a 29-point effort to go with five three-pointers in a 96–89 win over the Miami Heat.
On October 7, 2017, Curry was ruled out indefinitely after being diagnosed with a stress reaction of his left tibia. On February 6, 2018, he was ruled out for the entire season after it was determined he required surgery on his left tibia.
Portland Trail Blazers (2018–2019)Edit
On July 6, 2018, Curry signed a two-year contract with the Portland Trail Blazers, which included a player option for the second year. On January 26, 2019, he scored 22 points in a 120–111 win over the Atlanta Hawks. On February 5, he was selected to compete in the Three-Point Contest during All-Star Weekend. On March 9, he scored 22 points in a 127–120 win over the Phoenix Suns. Curry later went to the 2019 NBA playoffs with Portland and made it to the Western Conference Finals to face his brother Steph and the Golden State Warriors, who swept them 4–0 to knock them out of the playoffs.
Return to Dallas (2019–2020)Edit
On July 10, 2019, he signed a four-year contract to return to the Dallas Mavericks. On February 28, 2020, Curry scored a career-high 37 points on 13-of-15 shooting and 8-of-9 from three-point range in a 126–118 loss to the Miami Heat.
Philadelphia 76ers (2020–2022)Edit
On November 18, 2020, Curry was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Josh Richardson and the draft rights to Tyler Bey. On June 16, 2021, during the second round of the playoffs, Curry recorded a new playoff career-high of 36 points in a Game 5 losing effort against the Atlanta Hawks.
Brooklyn Nets (2022–present)Edit
On February 10, 2022, Curry was traded, along with Ben Simmons, Andre Drummond and two future first-round picks, to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for James Harden and Paul Millsap. In his debut for the Nets on February 14, Curry led the team in scoring with 23 points in a 109–85 win against the Sacramento Kings and helped the team end an 11-game losing streak. On May 9, he underwent left ankle surgery.
National team careerEdit
Curry competed for the United States in the 2009 FIBA Under-19 World Championship in New Zealand, winning the tournament by defeating Greece 88–80 in the final. For the tournament, Curry averaged 9.0 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.
On September 14, 2019, Curry married former professional volleyball player Callie Rivers, daughter of his former head coach Doc Rivers and sister of his former Duke teammate Austin Rivers. Their daughter was born in May 2018. She gave birth to a second child, a son, in November 2021. Curry's older brother, Stephen, is the starting point guard for the Golden State Warriors and won four championships, while his younger sister, Sydel, played college volleyball at Elon University and is married to Suns guard Damion Lee.
