Eddy Curry works out with Nets


Miami Heat unrestricted free agent Eddy Curry is getting another chance to leave his mark on the league, this time with the Brooklyn Nets, as the team spent Wednesday morning working out the center for a possible roster spot next season, according to a tweet from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

The Nets also worked out free agent forward Hilton Armstrong, who was selected 12th overall in the 2006 NBA Draft but hasn’t played since the 2010-11 season when he was with the Atlanta Hawks.

Curry, though widely-considered to be one of the biggest busts in the league after being selected by the Chicago Bulls fourth overall in the 2001 Draft, would provide insurance for the Nets should Brook Lopez and/or Reggie Evans go down with an injury. In 14 appearances last season with the Heat, Curry averaged 2.1 points in 5.9 minutes per game en route to the team winning an NBA championship.


He is not exactly a bust like Kwame Brown or Rodney White. I thought he was above-average in Chicago and average in NY. He career-averaged 5-6 rebounds per game as a center which is quite bad. He is not a lethal post scorer anymore. He plays poor defense and quite slow which was not fit to Miami's system. He's still a good 3rd string center for a non-playoff team.


The Nets would be crazy to sigh this lump of ****. He had no problem taking the Knicks money, but was never in shape to play.

He has a ring.  Isn't that embarrassment enough for the league?
