How Dell Curry’s net worth was built

Long before NBA superstar Stephen “Steph” Curry shattered the league’s single-season 3-point record in 2016, his father Dell Curry was lighting up courts as a long-range sharpshooter. The elder Curry played for 16 years in the NBA. Now that he is retired, Curry serves as a color commentator for the Charlotte Hornets. The position enables him to watch Steph and his other NBA player son, Seth, from the best seats in the house when they play the Hornets.

Curry’s endorsements when he was a player included a Burger King commercial that featured a young Steph. After Steph won the league’s MVP award in 2015, the Curry men starred in a commercial together for SportsCenter, featuring Dell making fun of Steph’s “one MVP.”

While father Curry may not be raking in an NBA salary anymore, he is still a wealthy man. As of May 2017, Del Curry’s net worth is $8 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
