Curry was also on the Charlotte Christian academic honor roll all four years.
After high school, Curry chose to attend Liberty University. In his freshman season at Liberty, he led all freshmen nationally in average points per game scored with 20.2 a game. Curry broke the Big South Conference single-season scoring record for a freshman. He wore the number 30 jersey at Liberty; the same number his dad and older brother wore in their careers.

Curry went undrafted in the 2013 NBA draft. In August of 2013, Curry signed a contract with the Golden State Warriors. After being waived by Golden State in late October, Curry was acquired by the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League as an affiliate player. In his D-League debut, Curry recorded 36 points on 12-of-19 shooting, as well as 6 assists and 3 rebounds. That December, he signed with the Memphis Grizzlies. On January 5, 2014, Curry both made his NBA debut and was waived by the Grizzlies. Four days later, he was reacquired by the Santa Cruz Warriors.
February 2014, Curry was named to the Futures All-Star roster for the 2014 NBA D-League All-Star Game.
Curry finished the 2013–14 NBA D-League season with averages of 19.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.4 steals in 38 games.
During his time at Santa Cruz, Curry played in the backcourt with Mychel Thompson. At the same time, their respective brothers, Stephen and Klay, were playing together in the Golden State backcourt in a tandem nicknamed the "Splash Brothers."
In July 2014, Curry joined the Orlando Magic and the Phoenix Suns for the Las Vegas Summer League. In September 2014, he signed with the Magic. On October 2014, the Magic’s affiliated team, the Erie BayHawks, in a trade with the Santa Cruz Warriors, acquired Curry’s D-League rights. In his debut for Erie in the team's season opener on November 14, Curry scored 23 points on 9-of-24 shooting in a win over the Idaho Stampede. In February 2015, he was named to the Futures All-Star team for the 2015 NBA D-League All-Star Game for the second time in his career.
In 43 games for Erie in 2014–15, he averaged 23.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.
In July 2015, Curry joined the New Orleans Pelicans for the 2015 NBA Summer League. After averaging 24.3 points per game in Las Vegas, Curry earned All-NBA Summer League first team honors. In July 2015 he signed a two-year, deal with the Sacramento Kings. Considered a "shooting guard trapped in a point guard's body", Curry's three-point shooting was a key reason the Kings signed him, as outside shooting has long been the Kings' Achilles heel.
In March 2016, he made his first career start, scoring 12 points in 26 minutes against the Phoenix Suns. Three days later, in just his third NBA start, Curry scored a career-high 21 points in a 105–93 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. He matched his career high on April 1, scoring 21 points against the Miami Heat. On April 9, he made a career-high six three-pointers and scored 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting off the bench in a 114–112 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Two days later, he recorded his first career double-double with 20 points and a career-high 15 assists in a career-high 38 minutes of action as the starting point guard, helping the Kings defeat the Phoenix Suns 105–101.
After the 2015–16 season, Curry declined his player option for the 2016–17 season in order to become a restricted free agent. On June 27, 2016, the Kings tendered a qualifying offer to Curry, but the team rescinded their qualifying offer, making Curry an unrestricted free agent.
In July of 2016, Curry signed with the Dallas Mavericks.
