The Curry brothers might again reside in the same state. 

According to the Los Angeles TimesBrad Turner, the Los Angeles Lakers have reached out to Seth Curry's representatives. 

"Curry is the type of long-range shooter the Lakers want," Turner added. 

The 28-year-old guard is set to become an unrestricted free agent after he played out a one-year contract with the Portland Trail Blazers. Curry shot 45.6 percent from three-point range with the Blazers. 

Curry played especially well in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors and his older brother, Stephen Curry. The younger Curry scored 16 points and shot 4-of-7 from three while nabbing four steals and dishing two assists. 

The Duke product went undrafted in 2013 and has since been a journeyman. He's played for the Memphis Grizzlies, Cleveland Cavaliers, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Dallas Mavericks and Portland.

Curry's best statistical season came in 2016-17 with the Mavericks. Across 70 games (42 starts), the 6'2", 185-pound guard posted career highs in points (12.8), assists (2.7) and rebounds per game (2.6).

Turner's report follows one by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Zach Lowe and Bobby Marks on Thursday, which noted the Lakers are interested in breaking up their remaining cap space among several players if they can't land another max player in free agency.
