I found this on RealGM and thought it was interesting. Even if other teams are interested in Murphy, it would appear their fans are not. He is not listed anywhere on the most popular player trades and the Pacers are only 20th as a team.

The problem with these stats is that it's generally the fans of a player's team that drives the trade checker activity. Sure, you'll see guys like Amare and McGrady spike when they get mentioned, but most of the day in, day out trade checker traffic is people working deals for their own teams.

While it's true that there would be a decidedly low number of people saying, "Hey, I wonder what it would take to get Troy Murphy," the real problem is that there are probably fewer than 20 people who go to the Pacer RealGM board with any regularity. I would be shocked if they had many more 30-40 posts a week...if that much.
