One and done: Mavs to release Eddy Curry, sign Troy Murphy

In his one NBA game for Dallas, Eddy Curry played fairly well, coming off the bench for 16 minutes, scoring 7 points and grabbing 4 boards.

But he is out and Troy Murphy is in.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the Mavericks have reached a one-year deal with Murphy. He spent last season coming off the bench for the Lakers but not giving them much — 16 minutes a night, 3.2 points and 3.2 rebounds, he could hit threes still (41.8 percent) but did little else (his rebounding was not special, although in the past he was better at it). He had a PER of 9.06.

But Dallas likes bigs who can stretch the floor, and Murphy can do that better than Curry.

Dallas had to make room on the roster for Murphy so Curry is going to be cut loose, reports Art Garcia of Fox Sports Southwest. It’s been a rough start to the season for him — Curry played fairly well for San Antonio in the preseason but lost out on the numbers game, now this in Dallas.

Not sure any of this makes a big change for the Mavs, but Murphy fills a role for them.
