Eddy Curry is taking his talents to South Beach. The Miami Heat announced his signing earlier today, tweeting a picture of him signing his contract:

Curry has been linked to the Heat for quite some time -- he nearly signed with the club last season after he was released by the Minnesota Timberwolves, who acquired him in a late-season trade with the New York Knicks. His conditioning -- or lack thereof -- apparently prevented that from happening, but the 29-year-old center has reportedly lost 50 pounds since tipping the scales at 350 pounds March.

Whether his weight loss is exaggerated or not remains to be seen, but the Heat apparently believe he has something to offer despite appearing in a grand total of 10 games (and zero in 2010-11) over the last three seasons. 

The terms of Curry's contract have not been released, but it'd be shocking if he signed for longer than one year, and it wouldn't be a surprise if his contract isn't fully guaranteed until the end of training camp.
