Curry's father won't vote for ROY
The NBA has taken away broadcaster Dell Curry's rookie of the year vote
Curry's son Stephen is a leading candidate, averaging 17.2 points per game
Curry's son, Stephen Curry, is averaging 17.2 points and 5.9 assists per game for Golden State. He and Kings guard Tyreke Evans, who is averaging 20.3 points and 5.8 assists, are considered the front-runners to be top rookie.
NBA spokesman Tim Frank says Dell Curry will be allowed to vote for all the other postseason awards, but the league did not want to put him in an awkward position with the rookie award.
The New York Times first reported the NBA's decision regarding Curry's vote.
Curry played 16 seasons in the NBA with five teams.
Franks says the league will replace Curry with another voter who covers the Bobcats, but has not picked a replacement yet.
