Spurs sign former Bull Eddy Curry

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Former Chicago Bulls center Eddy Curry signed with the San Antonio Spurs on Monday after playing sporadically with the Miami Heat last season.

Once considered to be one of the best young centers in the league a decade ago, former Chicago Bulls center Eddy Curry signed a training camp contract with the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The 29-year-old Curry hardly played as a reserve last year with the Miami Heat, and suited up just 14 times with a meager 5.9-minute average per night in the regular season. Selected with the No. 4 overall pick back in 2001 by Chicago out of high school, the seven-footer went on to play four seasons with the Bulls before being traded to New York in 2005.

Curry's last season of significant value came in 2007-08, when he averaged 13.2 points and 4.7 rebounds per game for a New York Knicks team that lost 59 times. Although it's easy to say that he has failed to live up to his immense hype and potential over the course of his career, Curry's 13.0-ppg career scoring average is hard to ignore, and he might just stick around the league for a while if he can keep himself in shape.
