Nets Looking to Trade Troy Murphy

According to the Star-Ledger, New Jersey is looking to unload Murphy, who recently lost his starting gig: “Troy Murphy, the Sparta native and Delbarton grad who was acquired by the Nets over the summer, will “probably’’ be traded this season, according to a person with knowledge of the team’s thinking. The person requested anonymity because that person is not authorized to speak for the team. Murphy started four games at the power forward spot this month after missing the preseason and the first three games of the regular season because of a back injury. But in the last week, he has lost his starting job to Kris Humphries, who first started Nov. 10, when Murphy sat out a game in Cleveland because of a sore foot. Humphries played well that night, and coach Avery Johnson has kept him in the starting lineup for four straight games.”

    I watch a few Net games from time to time, and when I see Favors play he plays well. Why isn’t he starting?

    When you lose your starting gig to Humphries, something is wrong.

    So, who’s going to want him? He’s got a bad back, a bad foot and even when he was healthy he wasn’t much of a force. If he was just an available free agent I could see some teams giving him a look, but he’s not worth $12mil for what he gives a team. As much as the Lakers need a Bynum sub and the Heat need anybody physical, I don’t see them trading for him.
