The Nets offseason free agency pursuit may not be over, as Marc Spears of Yahoo! reports that veteran big men Hilton Armstrong and Eddy Curry are working out for Brooklyn on Wednesday. Both are journeymen who have not made an impact in the NBA in quite some time, but general manager Billy Hunter is doing his due diligence and looking for fliers as NBA training camp rapidly approaches.
Curry is familiar with the New York era, as the center became the butt of many jokes during his tumultuous time with the Knicks. His conditioning and weight essentially ruined his career but he worked to try and keep that under control with the Miami Heat. He played in 14 games last season with the Heat, getting a little less than six minutes of run per game.
Armstrong is another former lottery pick who's failed to live up to expectations. The rangy shot-blocker from UConn last played in the NBA with the Hawks during the 2011 season.
