Curry had another solid season for the Hornets, starting 20 games in addition to filling his accustomed sixth man role in 48 others. He missed a total of 14 games, his most since 1989-90, because of a strained right calf, a broken nose and the flu. The calf injury also limited his playing time and effectiveness in the playoffs.
Curry finished fifth in the balloting for the Sixth Man Award after averaging 14.8 ppg and shooting .426 from three-point range on 126-for-296. He ranked third on the team in scoring and second in three-pointers made, and his .426 mark from behind the arc was sixth-best in the NBA.
Curry, who became the 202nd player in NBA history to score 10,000 points on Jan. 18 at New Jersey, scored a career-high 38 points on opening night in a 109-98 win over Toronto.

Curry went on to start 27 consecutive games, averaging 17.6 points in 36.3 minutes and shooting .464 from the field during that period, up from his season mark of .453.

After coming off the bench in all 69 of his regular-season appearances, he ran his string of consecutive appearances as a reserve to 326.

He tossed up 13 three-pointers against the Indiana Pacers on February 7 to establish a club single-game mark for attempts, and he tied the team's single-game record of 6 makes three times during the season.

Cleveland left Curry unprotected in the NBA Expansion Draft, and the Charlotte Hornets quickly snatched him up. He began the season on the injured list, missing the first 19 games after suffering a broken wrist in training camp. When he returned, he provided instant offense off the bench for Charlotte, averaging 11.9 points in only 16.9 minutes per game.
Curry appeared in only 48 games for the season, sitting out 14 games because of the coach's decision. Still, he was fast developing a reputation as one of the league's best pure shooters.
