Eddy Curry's troublesome year continues, at least off the court. The Knicks center reportedly can add foreclosure issues to his myriad problems, as the company that services his mortgage, Bayview Loan Servicing, on Monday filed a foreclosure notice against Curry in Cook County (Ill.) circuit court.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Curry and his wife, Patrice, took out a $3,719,316 mortgage in 2006 on the home, which is his current offseason residence, in Burr Ridge, Ill. It is the same location where the Curry family was victims of a home invasion in July 2007.
The Sun-Times reported that Curry was behind $217,502.82 on the mortgage, according to the filing.
Curry has two years and $21.7 million left on his current contract with the Knicks - who are owned by Cablevision, which also owns Newsday - with $10.5 million owed this coming season and $11.2 million due in 2010-11. He had an opt-out this year that he did not exercise.
Curry has been riddled with financial troubles, which have come to a head during the past six months.
In December, he was sued by a men's clothing retailer, Casual Male, for more than $40,000 in unpaid charges.
He was also the target of a $5-million sexual harassment suit in January, filed by his former chauffeur. The case has gone to arbitration.
Also a woman named Christina White reopened a previous lawsuit against Curry because she alleges he did not fully pay the settlement - about $300,000 - from the previous suit.
