Mavericks Add Troy Murphy, Waive Eddy Curry

In need of some MORE HELP for the Mavs’ front court, they have reached a verbal agreement with free agent forward Troy Murphy. They have waived Center Eddy Curry, which allows the Mavericks to bring aboard Murphy.

Murphy averaged 3.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 59 games last season with the Los Angeles Lakers.

“I can’t really say anything, but I’ll say we are looking for a stretch forward to help us in Dirk’s absence and even after Dirk comes back,” owner Mark Cuban said.

Though it seemed likely that DoJo, aka Dominique Jones would be the one likely to be waived, it was Curry’s lack of help on the defensive end that may have led to his removal. He averaged 4.5 points and 2 rebounds in 2 games with the Mavericks.

Troy Murphy, now in his 12th season has averaged 10.9 points and 7.9 rebounds over his career. He can also stretch defenses out, because of his ability to shoot the 3 ball. In his career, he has shot 39% from beyond the arc.

We will have more on this story as we find out more details.
