Eddy Curry to Knicks: Don’t Buy Me out; Waive Me
Embattled Eddy Curry told The Post he hopes the Knicks waive him if he is not in their plans for next season.
The Knicks’ star-crossed center, who has played 10 games in two seasons, said he would not take less money to go away.
"I’m not taking a buyout, so that’s not happening," Curry told The Post. "Definitely not. They can try to trade me if they wanted to. I hope it doesn’t come to that.
"But I would just hope that if it came down to it, especially going into a contract year, that if [coach Mike D’Antoni] knows this wasn’t the right place for me, they would make the right decision. Other than that, I’ll do everything I can to be ready."
The Knicks will look for a starting center in the free-agent market. In addition to Marcus Camby, they may court Brad Miller, who played for Knicks team president Donnie Walsh in Indiana.
In perhaps his last act as a Knick, Curry forgot his passport on their season-ending trip to Toronto earlier this week, according to sources. Curry would like to forget his past two seasons.
