Brooklyn Nets Worked Out Eddy Curry, Hilton Armstrong

Free agent big men Eddy Curry and Hilton Armstrong both worked out for the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, showcasing their skills for a potential backup role. The Nets are looking for depth behind Brook Lopez, and apparently, are running out of options. Via the New York Daily News: “Both Curry and Armstrong are free agents hoping for a spot in the training camp, which starts Sept. 29. The Nets can only offer the veteran’s minimum. ‘This is an excellent opportunity for Hilton,’ his agent, Sam Goldfeder, said. ‘He’s 100 percent ready for his chance to make the Nets.’ Curry’s inclusion is curious considering his history in New York. After former Knicks GM Isiah Thomas mortgaged the team’s future for Curry in 2005, the 7-0 center ate and underperformed his way to the doghouse. He signed with the Heat before last season and won a championship, but played in only 14 games (averaging 2.1 points), falling below even 39-year-old Juwan Howard on the depth chart. Armstrong played in France last season after five seasons in the NBA, where he averaged 3.1 points and 2.6 rebounds with the Hornets, Kings, Rockets, Wizards, Hawks.”

    Whenever I see headlines saying that a team worked out Eddy Curry I always think: “Good for him, maybe it helped him lose a pound or two.”

    When a team works out Curry, what that means is they sit him in front of a huge plate of tater tots and see how long he can go without eating any.

    Breaking News: This is the first time the phrase “worked out” has been used in Eddy Curry headline without the word “never” in front.

    In other news, the Brooklyn Nets subscribe to a very lose definition of “work out.”

    Makes sense. The Nets need that championship experience and leadership that only Eddy Curry can bring.
