The Dallas Mavericks are set to waive center Eddy Curry to make room for the recently signed Troy Murphy, reports ESPN.com.

The Mavericks claimed Curry off waivers the day before the preseason finale. He had  seven points and four rebounds in 17 minutes in the season opening win against the Los Angeles Lakers and played eight minutes, scoring two points in the Mavericks 113-94 loss to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.

Murphy, a 12-year veteran, played 59 games for the Lakers last season averaging 3.2 points. Murphy has career averages of 10.9 points and 7.9 rebounds. The Mavericks are still without All-Star forward Dirk Nowitzki, who is battling a knee injury and Chris Kaman, who is almost ready to come back from a calf injury.
