Eddy Curry: I Accept Knicks May Have to Trade Me

"I’ve been here a long time," Curry said before the Knicks lost 106-101 to the Nets last night at Izod Center. "I want to see us get better. If it takes my contract to do it, then I would hate to leave, [but] if it results in the Knicks getting better, I’m all for that."

Curry probably sees the writing on the wall and isn’t fighting it. Curry also said he is eligible to opt out of his contract after next season, something the Knicks would love him to do.

But that would seem improbable the way Curry’s career has plummeted to rock bottom. Curry would leave $11.2 million on the table.
