After taking the NBA D-League by storm in the early weeks of the season, Seth Curry earned himself a call-up to The Association.
But after getting just a small taste of the NBA life his brother Stephen Curry has been treated to over the years, the younger Curry will be released by the Grizzlies, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Curry would have had to have kept his spot on Memphis' roster through Tuesday, in order to ensure his contract become guaranteed. With the annual D-League Showcase now underway, prospects can sign ten-day contracts with NBA teams starting Monday. January 5th.
No word as of yet with regard to whether or not the Grizzlies plan on re-signing Curry to a ten-day contract or two in the coming days to keep him town or a bit longer before making another decision.
Should Curry not be brought back by Memphis (or another NBA team, for that matter), it'd certainly be beneficial for him to return to the Santa Cruz Warriors of the D-League in time to appear and strut his stuff a bit at the Showcase.
Golden State's D-League affiliate is reportedly poised to re-sign Scott Machado in time for the annual event. It'd be interesting to see if the potential return of Curry will force the team to kick the tires on the signing of the former.
