2. Seth Curry

Seth Curry was a free agent for the Nets last season, and they decided not to bring him back. He had his worst statistical season since his 2018-2019 season with the Portland Trail Blazers. Averaging 9.2 points in 67 games and shooting a career-low from three at 40 percent. Clearly, Curry was starting to decline, and the Nets' front office picked up on it.

The Dallas Mavericks signed the former Duke Blue Devil to a 2-year 8 million dollar deal. Like the Suns, the Mavericks needed depth pieces after the Kyrie Irving trade and losing Christian Wood in free agency.

Curry has been a great shooter for his entire career and has excelled in Dallas before, but the 33-year-old seems to have lost that touch. Going from 19.9 minutes a game to just 9.1 minutes is alarming. He's at a career-low 3.1 points per game in 12 games with the Mavericks.

The Mavericks signed Dante Exum who hasn't played an NBA game since the 2020-21 season. Despite that, he is getting more minutes and opportunities than Curry. Josh Green and Jaden Hardy are young players providing more and deserve more minutes.

The Nets didn't have many free agents last season but let Seth walk, which seemed to have been at the right time. They certainly don't regret that, but Marks does have regrets.
