Seth Curry and the Dallas Mavericks are headed toward a reunion.

Multiple reports say Curry and the Mavs agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal on Monday, a day after NBA’s free agency opened. Curry is the younger brother of Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry.

Seth Curry, 28, is coming off a season in which he averaged 7.9 points for the Portland Trail Blazers. He ranked third in the NBA in three-point shooting, making 45 percent of his shots (a better mark than his brother). His emergence in the playoffs, particularly in the big-shot making he displayed against his brother, boosted his stock heading into this off-season.

Curry will provide a boost to a Mavs team that struggled from 3-point range last season, ranking 27th out of 30 teams in 3-point field goal percentage.

Curry played with the Mavericks during the 2016-17 season, averaging 12.8 points a game over 70 games.

An undrafted player out of Duke, Curry has also spent time with the Grizzlies, Cavaliers, Suns and Kings.

NBA star Kevin Durant saw Luka Doncic play for the first time on Saturday, and came away impressed with the Dallas Mavericks' rookie. Doncic led the Mavs with 24 points in their 112-109 victory.
