"What (Iverson) brings to the table for us is his speed and quickness with the basketball," Curry said in a report Tuesday in the Detroit Free Press. "He helps us in the area of getting into the paint, winning the battle of the free-throw line with the amount of fouls that he draws."
Curry called Iverson a "first-ballot Hall of Fame player."
Pictures of Iverson dominated the Pistons' Web site Tuesday, a day after the high-scoring, playmaking guard joined the team.
The site even had a "Five-rson" promotion, in which fans can buy tickets for any four games and get a fifth game free.
The Pistons got Iverson, one of the NBA's top stars, in a trade with Denver, sending three players to the Nuggets: Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb.
Iverson has been a fixture in the league for 13 seasons. He played more than 10 years for the Philadelphia 76ers before going to the Nuggets.
The 33-year-old guard has averaged 27.7 points and 6.3 assists per game in his career.
