Eddy Curry Jr. (born December 5, 1982 in Harvey, Illinois) is an American professional basketball player in the NBA currently with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He was born in Harvey, Illinois. He is 7 ft 0 in (2.13 m) and 295 lb (134 kg), and has a wingspan of 7 ft 6½ in (2.299 m).

Prior to becoming considered one of the best high school basketball players in the nation as a senior at Thornwood High School in South Holland, Illinois, Curry aspired to be a gymnast and did not pick up basketball until the seventh grade when he reluctantly went out for the school team. In 2001, Curry led his team to second place in the IHSA State Playoffs. For his efforts, Curry was named 2001 Illinois Mr. Basketball. He was named to the 1998, 1999 and 2000 State Farm Holiday Classic all-tournament teams.

Curry had signed a letter of intent to play at DePaul University but declared himself eligible for the 2001 NBA Draft in which the Chicago Bulls made him the fourth overall pick.
