The Dallas Mavericks claimed free-agent center Eddy Curry off waivers Thursday.

The 7-foot Curry was waived Wednesday by San Antonio after averaging 8.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 15.4 minutes in five preseason games. He played 14 games last season for Miami, averaging 2.1 points and 5.9 minutes.

''We are excited to bring Eddy Curry to Dallas,'' said Donnie Nelson, the Mavericks' president of basketball operations. ''He has worked extremely hard this offseason and can provide our front line with much needed depth.''

Drafted fourth overall by Chicago in 2001, Curry has averaged 13.0 points and 5.2 rebounds in 525 career games with Chicago, New York and Miami.
