If you’re like me, seeing Eddy Curry on the Spurs’ preseason roster was a bit of a surprise. We all know how much help the Spurs need in the post, but Curry has been considered a disappointment since he was drafted fourth overall in the 2001 Draft.

Curry has a documented history of being overweight and out of shape, and he’s had some heart problems that have kept him out of action in the past. He made a few appearances with the NBA champion Miami Heat last year, showing off a slimmer frame, but still not enough talent to make a long-term contribution.

Now he’s with the Spurs.

In his first preseason game, Curry played nine minutes, scoring seven points on 3-5 shooting and adding two rebounds. He’s not blowing anyone away, so the odds that he’ll make the final cut for the Spurs are pretty slim, but it looks like he may have other options.

“Even in the event Eddy Curry doesn't make the Spurs, word is he's played well enough to have drawn interest from several teams, which are supposedly keeping tabs on him,” tweeted Sam Amico. “Then again, Curry no longer seems like such a long shot to make the Spurs' final roster. The Bucks, Trail Blazers, Hornets and yes, Bulls, all may have an interest if Curry is cut loose.”

I’d have to see more of a sample size from Eddy Curry before I decided whether or not he should be on the Spurs. I have no doubt the right decision will be made just because of how good the coaching staff is at evaluating talent. There’s still plenty of time left to make an educated evaluation, but there’s no denying that the Spurs could use another big guy. This might be their answer.
