Pat Riley Likely Not Trading for Eddy Curry

Curry is not expected to be traded before today’s 3p.m. deadline even though Miami coach Pat Riley did express some interest in acquiring the Knicks’ struggling center. According to a league source, Miami contacted Curry’s former club, the Chicago Bulls, to gather information on the center. On Wednesday, Riley shot down an Internet report that had the Knicks shipping Curry to Miami, New Jersey sending Vince Carter to the Knicks and the Nets acquiring Heat players with expiring contracts.
