The Orlando Magic has lost their leading scorer in the D-League as Seth Curry has signed a 10-day contract with the Phoenix Suns.

The Erie Bayhawks guard was averaging 23.5 points per game in 36 games on 48 per cent shooting. He has connected on 91.9 per cent of his free throws and was hitting 48.2 per cent from behind the arc.

Curry was also averaging 4.3 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. He has scored in double digits in all but one game this season and has gone off for more than 30 points six times, including a season high 43 points in a 110-107 loss to Delaware in January.

The 24-year-old has appeared in two career NBA games (one each with Memphis and Cleveland), scoring three total points.

Curry is the younger brother of Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry. He played his college basketball at Duke.

The Suns have likely made the move after recently acquired guard Brandon Knight sprained his ankle Monday night.

The Bayhawks sit fourth in the Atlantic Division with a 17-22 record. The team’s primary scoring will now come from Austin Daye and Drew Crawford.

Devyn Marble, who has played in 16 games with Orlando this season, is averaging 13 points in six games. Erie also has former Detroit Pistons guard Peyton Siva, who is averaging 12.9 points per game.
