Eddy Curry Agrees To Wolves Buyout; Might Be Headed To The Heat?

The Eddy Curry in Minnesota era was over before it began. Because, after being included in last week’s trade that sent Corey Brewer to the New York Knicks, Curry and the Timberwolves have agreed to a buyout of his contract.

According to the Star Tribune’s Jerry Zgoda, this seems to mean that Curry believes that there is interest from other NBA teams the out of shape big man might takes his talents to:

The team announced during the game that they reached a buyout agreement with Eddy Curry and waived the veteran, oft-injured center by a midnight deadline that makes him eligible to sign with a team for the playoffs, if such an interested team exists.

Is there a market for a guy who’s barely played the last three seasons. Curry and his agent must think, or know, so, otherwise why would they agree to a buyout rather than just make the Wolves waive him and pay off the rest of his $11.2 million (for which the Wolves have received $3 million from the Knicks)?

Current rumors report that both the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat might be interested, but SB Nation’s NBA crew has already found 60 other players that the Heat would be better off signing.
