Troy Murphy Still Heading to Golden State?

by February 19, 2011

Originally contingent on Murphy being dealt to the Nuggets in the Carmelo deal with New Jersey, the San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that Murphy could be a Warrior even if Anthony doesn’t come to the Nets: “Warriors general manager Larry Riley said the Murphy deal would go through New Jersey if it were to happen. He said the Warriors are part of talks with New Jersey, among a number of other teams, on deals that would exchange the Warriors’ expiring contracts for a player of substance inside or for future draft picks. The Warriors have three expiring contracts that could be of interest, those of Dan Gadzuric, Vladimir Radmanovic and Brandan Wright. Murphy would help the Warriors in rebounding now and could be signed for a hometown discount.”
