Seeking to fill the lone remaining hole on their roster — a backup center behind Brook Lopez — the Nets could give Eddy Curry a second-chance in New York. Curry, along with Hilton Armstrong, worked out for the Nets Wednesday, according to Yahoo! Sports. Curry, the much maligned former Knick, spent last season with the Heat, playing 14 games and averaging 2.1 points while riding the coattails of LeBron James to his first NBA title.
In 2006, Hilton Armstrong was the 12th overall pick in the NBA Draft, selected by the Hornets out of UConn. The Sonics (Thunder) and Wizards were two other teams Armstrong knew were interested in him at the time. And there was another team, drafting far later, that had him on its radar: the Nets. “I didn’t know that,” the 6-foot-11 Armstrong said yesterday after the completion of the Nets’ three-day mini-camp for free agents. “I hope that’s a harbinger for some good things. It would be real nice to play here. I’d be real happy.”
