CHICAGO, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- The Chicago Bulls revealed Monday that they have traded center Eddy Curry to the New York Knicks.
Bulls General Manager John Paxson made the announcement Monday night. Other details of the trade are apparently still being worked out. The deal was expected to become official by Tuesday.
Curry, 22, missed the last 13 games of the 2004-05 season due to an irregular heartbeat. Curry ended the campaign averaging 16.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest.
The Bulls wanted Curry to take a DNA test to see if his heart was going to be such a problem that he wouldn't be able to play. Paxson said Curry refused to undergo the genetic testing.
"I would never put a player on the floor in a Chicago Bulls uniform if I didn't do everything in my power to find out all the information that was available to us," Paxson said.
