Some Warriors fans have suggested that the GS might be willing to trade Troy Murphy but not Ike Diogu or Andris Biedrins to the Pacers for Ron Artest.
The theory is that if the Warriors take on Artest's salary, they need to also trim a larger salary. Plus with Artest, Ike Diego and Biedrins are eventually going to take over at power forward anyway.
If Murphy were available in a package with Pietrus for Artest and David Harrison, would you do it? Troy makes about 7.3 million now and gets annual raises over $900,000, so his salary is not too much out of line, at least now.
Could Murphy's offensive skills and rebounding on the defensive boards be what the doctor ordered? Or is he a bad fit?
I already know most feel about Mike Pietrus, so not much to be said there. Pietrus and Granger sounds good long term to me and, along with Murphy and JO, might be popular with the fans. It's not necessary but to balance the deal I also sent Freddie Jones to GS and Cabarkaba to Indiana. Originally I had AJ in, but felt GS needed Freddie more and that we might not re-sign Freddie, especially with Pietrus and Steve Jackson both on the roster.
Troy Murphy is exactly the kind of hustle player Jeff Foster is supposed to be, with better offense.
I seriously doubt the Warriors are offering him, let alone along with Pietrus. They're probably dangling Adonal Foyle who got his contract and (as suspected) turned out to be a waste. Whatever you do DO NOT get Foyle, unless it comes with JRich/Baron/Diogu.
