Believe it or not, center Eddy Curry appears to be a hot commodity on the NBA waiver wire. According to Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld, at least five teams have been in touch with the former first-round pick and are interested in signing him.
Curry appeared in two games for the Dallas Mavericks this season, averaging 4.5 points and two rebounds over 12.5 minutes per game. He appears to be in game shape and still has good height at 7'0", so it's not surprising that some teams would want to bring him aboard as a backup.
Kennedy did not name the teams that reached out to Curry, but it's clear that some need some help in the paint. Be it for the lack of a backup center or having a young big man who needs some pointers from a veteran, Curry is a good option to pursue. He will come cheap and provides a big body off the bench, which is never a bad thing.
If he can stay in shape and be productive for any of these NBA teams that could use some extra size, then he'll be able to up his value, and perhaps be more than just an end-of-the-bench backup at age 29.
