MIL gets:

Troy Murphy 2 yr, $23.0M
Travis Deiner 1 yr, $1.70M

IND gets:

Dan Gadzuric 2 yr, $14.0M
Kurt Thomas 1 yr, $3.80M
Joe Alexander 1 yr, $2.58M

They easily get the best player, possibly two best players in this deal. We get an athletic young player, who is only the second top ten pick to ever not have his third year option picked up. Curious. We would release Kurt Thomas to let him go find a playoff team to catch on with. Gadzuric would be a backup in our front court and solid for practice. We get rid of about $4.8M in salary for next year. They get a big that can spread the floor and work off of Bogut. He would be a good weak-side rebounder for them. He would really help them make a playoff push.

Teams usually don't trade in the same division. And I really don't want Gadzuric. We can do so much better than that next year.

Not a terrible salary dump, but why not have Kurt Thomas tutor Hansbrough for awhile. He has a made a 15 year career with a similar skill set. Joe Alexender may just be draft workout buzz he did get minutes late last year.

This is actually one of the more reasonable trades I have seen listed. It makes sense for both teams, although I am not sure Milwaukee being small market would be in love with taking Murphy's contract.

I like the idea, but the bucks sure would not.

All this does for the Bucks is to add ~$4-5M in committed salary to their payroll. It does nothing else.

Wow... the Bucks get a solid rotational player who would actually play well for three players who dont touch their lineup for a whopping $4-5M. I think their ownership wouldn't think twice about the extra money (for once in a Troy Murphy trade).

That's an additional $4-5M for a player who has proven that he doesn't add wins.

Both teams he has played on he was a starter, which he clearly isn't. Troy Murphy is a perfect complementary player. He just makes too much damn money to not start for a team. He wouldn't start for the Bucks. I think he would help a team win if he didn't log 35+ minutes for said team.
