Veteran center Eddy Curry shows up at Spurs training camp
Veteran center Eddy Curry showed up in shape at the San Antonio Spurs training camp on Monday, reports the San Antonio Express-News.
The No. 4 overall pick in the 2001 draft, he has career averages of 13.0 points and 5.2 rebounds per game, with an All-Star-like 19.5 points and 7.0 rebounds in 81 games with the Knicks in 2006-07.
Curry has played in only 24 games the past three seasons, although he did win a championship ring as a member of the Miami Heat last season.
“I worked hard this summer,” Curry said. “I dropped 15, 20 pounds. I was in pretty good shape when the season ended. I just had to maintain, trim up a little bit more.”
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said he noticed the change in Curry’s appearance.
“I didn’t know much about Eddy Curry and he did come into camp lighter than I thought he would,” Popovich said.
