The New York Daily News reported that Knicks center Eddy Curry met with agent Leon Rose before New York's game at San Antonio on Tuesday. It is believed the Spurs and the Miami Heat are both interested in the big man, who was removed from the Knicks rotation before the season opener by coach Mike D'Antoni and is currently sidelined for another two weeks with a bruised knee.
The Daily News reported that Miami may be willing to deal Shawn Marion -- a favorite of Mike D'Antoni -- for Curry, but the deal wouldn't be easy to put together due to the salaries not matching up.

Multiple sources indicate that the New York Knicks are trying to put together a deal to bring disgruntled Golden State Warrior Al Harrington to the team. While the Knicks have great interest in Harrington, the sticking point appears to revolve around who the Warriors would get in return.
Newsday and the New York Daily News report that Knicks president Donnie Walsh would like to trade center Eddy Curry for Harrington, since the benched center's salary is a close match with Harrington's. Newsday reported that a league source said Walsh spoke with Warriors executive Chris Mullin about a deal last week, and Mullin told Walsh he'd have to get back to him. At this point, it appears the Warriors have little to no interest in Curry.
The Knicks may need a third team involved in the trade to make a deal happen. The Charlotte Observer reported this week that the Bobcats might want in on the deal so they can get Curry. Newsday added that it's been very difficult for Walsh to put together deals since, as an unnamed league source said, "the entire league knows he's trying to move players."

The New York Daily News reports, needless to say, Eddy Curry needs to improve his conditioning -- what else is new? -- before we’ll see much of him in the preseason.
Curry, though, did say that he fully expects to be the opening night starting center.
Curry, Zach Randolph and David Lee are battling for the two starting jobs. Jared Jefferies was in the mix before breaking his left leg.
The practice was shown live on NBA TV which gave league executives and coaches a chance to see for themselves that Stephon Marbury is in good form and still the team’s best player.
