Marc J. Spears tweets that the Nets are working out two back-up bigs, the former Bull, Knick and Heat Eddy Curry and Hilton Armstrong who played in France last season. Curry, 6'11" and 290 pounds, won a ring with Miami in June. His once promising career has been hurt by weight and conditioning issues

Spears, who first reported the Nets training camp invite to Donte Greene, says Billy King is looking for the "next Gerald Green diamond in rough."

Curry, 29, has played 83 games the last four years, three with New York and one with Miami. With the Heat, he played in 14 games, starting one. He averaged 2.1 points in 5.9 minutes. The Nets have only the vets minimum to offer, $1.35 million.

Armstrong, a lottery pick by the Hornets in 2006, participated in the Nets free agent camp in June. He played for Asvel in France, averaging 11.1 and 7.2. He recently turned down an offer to play in Greece, hoping for one more shot in the NBA. Spears wrote the Nets are "seeking vet C & SF" for the roster.
