Timberwolves buy out Eddy Curry. Anybody interested? Anybody? Bueller?

Mar 2, 2011, 12:51 AM EDT


It seemed unlikely that Eddy Curry was ever going to suit up for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It’s not like they were ever going to take minutes away from Kevin Love to give to Curry. Heck, I wouldn’t take minutes away from Darko to give to Curry.

So the two sides agreed to a buyout, the Wolves announced during their loss to the Lakers. Remember that Curry came to Minnesota, along with Anthony Randolph and $3 million cash, as part of the deal that sent Carmelo Antony from Denver to New York. Conveniently, the $3 million basically covers Curry’s buyout.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News tweets not to be shocked if Boston gives Eddy Curry a test drive. We say you should be shocked. Curry hasn’t been able to sniff the Knicks rotation, and they desperately need a big man. Minnesota didn’t want him. Nobody sane will take him on.  We’ll see but this may be the end of the line in the NBA for Curry.

    Stupid Stupid Stupid. All the talent in the world, and nothing upstairs to put it to use.

      Agreed, send him overseas to play with Marbury.

    i would love to pile on eddy curry, but this guy is going to be broke in 2 years. this will be a bad story. and it’s too bad because all the stuff i’ve read from ny beat writers is that he’s not a bad guy.

    One should place a lot of the blame on the enablers who have surrounded this kid all his life. And while we are at it let’s revisited that genius who signed him to the humongous contract, that great talent evaluator and that paragon of virtue. Drum roll please!!!!!

    Can we hear it for Isiah Thomas? Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now would someone please tell Charles Dolan to loose Zeke’s number and let Donny Walsh do his job before he ups and quits?
