Nets exploring adding Eddy Curry, Josh Childress among others

At this point, you have to wonder if the Nets will be sad when they have no more roster spots to spend money on. Yahoo Sports reports that the Nets are considering several options for their final two available roster spots including… Eddy Curry.

The Nets could use Curry. They’re not particularly loaded down low and even with Reggie Evans, having some center insurance wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. But Curry (along with Hilton Armstrong, also mentioned by Yahoo!) isn’t the only player they’re looking at. The Nets have 13 players, leaving them two spots to spend money on. And they love spending money on players.

The New York Post reports:

The Nets could consider possibilities such as Josh Childress, Sam Young and their own free agent, Damion James.

via Former New York Knick Eddy Curry, along with fellow center journeyman Hilton Armstrong, work out for Brooklyn Nets – NYPOST.com.

The Nets were expected to sign Donte Green, but a possible fractured ankle leaves that in doubt.

While Childress gives them a high amount of athleticism,  and James provides much the same, Young might honestly be the best option. The second unit could struggle to create points outside of MarShon Brooks, and Young is a willing defender from his time in Memphis. He needs to not have the ball in his hands, but on a team like the Nets, that shouldn’t be an issue.

Either way, can’t wait for the Nets to petition the league to allow them to sign 20 guys even if they can still only dress 12.

    Great. I guess now they can have their pre championship pep rally like the “Heatles” did.

      Heatles! Definition-greatness !! Good call heatluver!

    The Nets should’ve signed Shelden Williams. He is an upgrade at that position compared to Curry.

    @dis612, “Heatles”= one and done, as in 1 championship!

    eddy curry: the only player to ever win a ring without ever playing in a playoff game in his whole career

    one and done? That’s lakerluvers motto when he sees Kobe. 1 second to climax and then he’s spent.

    You wonder why I dig at you? You go looking for confrontation, but you lack the intelligence to form any sort of debate.

    You’re clownshoes dude.

    The Heat were in desperate need of a C worth playing last year.

    The Heat had Eddy Curry. He played 82 minutes the WHOLE season including playoffs and wasn’t hurt.

    That alone should tell you something BK! He ain’t worth sh!!!!t !

      Put Curry and Howard in a room , let the winner walk out alive.Curry , starting center for Fakers. Are they bringing back Malone and Payton too to win a ring ? How that work out last time ?? Didn’t !! When you need Blake to hit game wining shots in the playoffs , your team ain’t sh*t !!
