The Warriors and Nets are close to finalizing a multi-player trade, according to sources.

Golden State will send Dan Gadzuric and Brandan Wright to New Jersey for Troy Murphy and a 2012 second round pick.

Murphy is expected to be bought out by the Warriors and he would then become a free agent after clearing waivers.

While the Nets and Warriors appear to be firm trade partners, there are discussions that the deal could expand to a three-team deal involving Devin Harris.

The Blazers and Mavericks are the two most likely destinations for Harris.

They'd have him gone before you could say hot potato. Words of wisdom: One who has had Murphy does not want him back.

It seems unfair to me that the team that gave him the ungodly bad contract should be able to actually benefit from it after pawning it off on other teams, and then getting it back. But, such is the NBA.

Really, it's just an irrelevant trade for a team that is pretty content with being irrelevant.

For the Warriors, it'll save the ownership about $500K and get them a 2nd round pick. Pretty irrelevant from a fan's point of view. It's just a little bit of money in the owner's pocket.

That's going to happen in a league where, out of 450 players, only a handful of them really matter and the rest are just a bunch of guys whose contracts make the numbers match in a trade.

Reports are that the Heat, Celtics, Magic, and Mavs have interest in him.


Murphy, a 6-foot-11 forward, has the interest of several playoff contenders, including Orlando, Dallas, Miami and Boston, sources said. His 3-point range and size make him attractive to playoff teams.

I hate to say it but Troy would be perfect for the Heat, Celtics, Bulls, Thunder, Magic, or Mavs.

I think there are several of us that feel bad for Troy. He was a decent team mate and nice guy, just in need of a team where he can be appreciated. Hope he can stop moving around and hook up with a good situation.

What happens when Troy ends up on a team that we play in the first round? Does JOB show up in the stands wearing his jersey?

Chris Broussard concurs that Murphy to the Heat would be ideal. Via me watching it on SC..

Wouldn't that be something.. Troy and Mike in the playoffs for the first time.. Against each other. Sweet irony!

If he somehow ends up with the Heat.. I want that playoff battle to the umpteenth degree more. PACERS!!

The Heat makes a lot of sense... lots of open jumpers there for a spot up big, and as bad as Murph is on D he is nowhere the plodder that Big Z and Dampier have become.
