Mavericks officially waive Eddy Curry, sign Troy Murphy

Kevin Jairaj-US PRESSWIRE

The Mavericks have made some roster moves by waiving Eddy Curry, and signed Troy Murphy.

The Dallas Mavericks have made a roster move on Friday as they signed forward Troy Murphy to a one-year contract, and to make room for the signing they had to release center Eddy Curry.

Curry has been with the Mavericks for just one season, and this year he played in both of the team's games. In those games, Curry came off the bench for 25 total minutes, scored nine points and grabbed four rebounds.

Murphy spent last year with the Lakers, where he came off the bench and averaged 16 minutes a night, 3.2 points and 3.2 rebounds.

The Mavericks needed another forward who could shoot the ball well since Dirk Nowitzki is still going to be out a few more weeks while he recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery. The Mavericks have been trying to trade guard Dominique Jones, but did have not any takers. So with no one currently interested in Jones, next in line on the list to unload was Curry.
