Her younger brothers are Houston Rockets player Austin Rivers and former college basketball player for UC Irvine, Spencer Rivers.

Callie’s older brother, Jeremiah Rivers, played college basketball at Georgetown University.

Coming from a sporting family, Callie played volleyball for the University of Florida and, last year, she married NBA star Seth Curry, who was her brother Austin’s teammate at Duke.

Speaking to The Undefeated about his sister marrying his former teammate, Austin said: “Seth has found a good girl. My family got a good guy. There is so much familiarity. It’s a very easy fit.”

Seth Curry and his wife Callie Rivers Curry have a daughter together, two-year-old Carter Lynn Curry.

Callie Rivers Curry has 72,000 followers on her Instagram profile, and 22,000 followers on her Twitter.

Seth Curry joins the Philadelphia 76ers

It was announced today that Seth Curry, Callie Rivers Curry’s husband, was transferring from the Dallas Mavericks to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Interestingly, this is the team that Doc Rivers, Callie Rivers Curry’s dad, is the head coach of.

Setting aside the family relationship between Rivers and Curry off the court, Curry fills a desperate need for Philadelphia as a well-accomplished three point shooter.

Philadelphia 76ers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey told reporters: “Getting Seth – you can argue for him as the best shooter in the NBA – was really exciting.”

Similar to Callie Rivers Curry, Seth also comes from a basketball family. His dad is Dell Curry, who retired as Charlotte Hornets’ all-time leader in points and three-point field goals made.

As well as this, Seth’s brother is Stephen Curry, who currently plays for the Golden State Warriors.

Doc Rivers is well-known both as a former NBA player and now as a head coach. He finished his playing career in 1996 with the San Antonio Spurs and moved into coaching.

Since then, he has coached Orlando Magic, Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Clippers, and Philadelphia 76ers. He was hired as head coach by the Philadelphia 76ers in October 2020.
