Reports say Knicks' Eddy Curry sued by former driver

New York Knicks center Eddy Curry is being sued by his former driver, who alleges Curry owes him money, sexually harassed him and berated him

THE BRONX - New York Knicks center Eddy Curry is being sued by his former driver, who alleges Curry owes him money, sexually harassed him and berated him with racist slurs.

Dave Kuchinsky alleges in a lawsuit, which was filed Monday in U.S. District Court, that Curry owes him $98,000 in back pay and expenses, according to a story on the New York Post's Web site. Newsday reported Tuesday that Kuchinsky is also seeking $5 million in compensatory damages.

Curry, 26, is married with four children. He is in his eighth NBA season and fourth with the Knicks. Curry has played in only one game this season because of knee injuries.

He denies the allegations.

"I'm shocked, really," says Curry. "He approached my friends a while back, trying to get money. I just never, ever thought it would go past what it did, which was just idle threats, money-or-else kind of stuff."

AP wire services were used in this report.
