Steph Curry Reacts To Seth's Trade To Nets: "I Had To Change My Favorite Team In My Phone To Get The Alerts From Philly To Brooklyn."

Thursday night's trade deadline featured a lot of high-profile trades. The biggest, by far, was the blockbuster deal that swapped James Harden with Ben Simmons.

Former Sixers guard Seth Curry was also part of that trade, and will soon suit up for the Nets for the first time in his career. He seems excited enough to join his new team, but how does his brother feel?

After his game against the Lakers on Saturday, Steph shared his reaction to the big trade.

"I had to change my favorite team in my phone to get the alerts from Philly to Brooklyn," Steph told reporters after the Warriors' 117-115 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night. "It was obviously a big move, a big splash. I know he was kind of caught in the crossfire of Philly making a move like that. Because he loved it there, loved playing there and they were playing well. But obviously you've got to make that move. Win-win for him. Hopefully he can still be on a contender and be impactful in the playoff chase with Brooklyn. Excited to see him in a new [uniform]."

While Seth has never quite been as good as his brother, he is a valuable player in this league. A premier shooter and scorer, he is in the middle of the best season of his career with averages of 15 points, 4 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per game on 40% shooting from downtown.

In Brooklyn, he'll have the chance to play a prominent role on a Nets team poised to make a deep playoff run.

Best of all? If things go the right way, we may see him face off against Steph in the NBA Finals. No doubt, that would be a showdown for the ages.
