Stephen Curry personally selected Azzi Fudd, an up-and-coming basketball star, to represent his growing sports brand, SC30. Despite having a wide reach beyond the NBA, with 4 NBA championships and 2 MVP awards under his belt, Curry chose Fudd over any other player in the league or collegiate basketball. This decision was a strategic one, as Fudd became the first athlete to join SC30.
Azzi Fudd, who secured an exclusive commitment from Stephen Curry last year, now has her sights set on joining the Bay Area just like the 4-time NBA Champion.
Azzi Fudd is focused on the Bay Area.
When asked about signing Azzi Fudd and making her the first female athlete to join his brand SC30, Stephen Curry stated to Boardroom, “She is the future of women’s basketball.” While the specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed, it is a comprehensive deal that includes Curry personally mentoring Fudd. Additionally, she will have access to resources for development and support both on and off the court, according to the company’s statement.
Curry and Fudd share a strong connection beyond their work relationship. Despite Fudd’s rise to fame as the Gatorade Player of the Year in 2019, she was one of just two female athletes chosen for Curry’s Select Camp at the age of 15 in 2018. Curry was immediately impressed by her shooting abilities.
According to Curry’s interview with Boardroom, he praised a female camper as the top shooter at camp. Despite being injured and wearing a boot, she even won a three-point contest.
Most recently, Fudd suggested that he may follow Curry to the Bay Area courts.
In 2025, the WNBA will make a comeback to the Bay Area through a new team, marking the league’s first expansion since 2008. Their home court will be the well-known Chase Center, and their administrative offices will be situated in the former downtown Oakland practice facility of the Warriors.

Although it is still uncertain, Azzi Fudd is expected to be eligible for the WNBA draft in 2025. In the meantime, she will be rejoining the Huskies after recovering from a knee injury this season.
After recovering from her injury, Azzi Fudd makes her return.
After a knee injury hindered her sophomore year and allowed her to only play in 13 games, Azzi Fudd is now ready for an exciting 2023-24 basketball season. Known for her impressive speed and smooth 3-point shots, Fudd is back in top form and poised to make a significant impact for the Huskies. Despite the challenges of her injuries, Fudd managed to average an impressive 15.1 points per game during her sophomore season. With her health fully restored, she enters the upcoming season with high expectations and UConn is in a strong position to compete for the national title.
However, Azzi Fudd’s focus is not solely on her own personal achievements. When discussing the upcoming season, Fudd stated, “Our team has faced many challenges in the past few years, including injuries, and we have learned not to take anything for granted. But we are not just content with being able to play. We still have aspirations and a drive to achieve our goals. We have high expectations for ourselves, which is always in the back of our minds, even though it may go unspoken. We have been working tirelessly in all aspects, from the weight room to the training room to the court. So, as I mentioned, it is an unspoken understanding among us.”
Azzi Fudd’s potential and success at UConn will make her a sought-after prospect for WNBA teams in the future. She is a promising young talent in the basketball world, with even greater things to come. Having Stephen Curry as a mentor will undoubtedly make her journey even more exciting.
