Mavs make Troy Murphy, Eddy Curry moves official

The Mavericks announced the signing of Troy Murphy and waiving of Eddy Curry on Friday evening.

The Mavs agreed to a one-year deal with Murphy on Thursday, pending a physical.

They waived Curry after two games because they needed to create an open roster spot for Murphy. With Chris Kaman likely making his Dallas debut Saturday and Dirk Nowitzki sidelined at least another two weeks, the Mavs determined that a power forward with perimeter shooting range and rebounding ability was a better fit for the roster than a traditional center.
