Murphy trade idea..

Im not one to htrow out outlandish trade scenarios, but when 3:30 comes it's usually "how can we get rid of Murphy" time.  Today I had some time to play with the trade Machine and look at some free agents.

Troy Murphy - 2 years 11 Million to the Clippers

for

Marcus Camby - 1 year 9 Million

 

Why the Clippers do it - They have a ton of big guys, and Kaman coming back healthy and signed to a long deal.  DeAndre Jordan coming into his own, and Cambys contact is up this year.  Murphy will bring that versatile guy to the team that they could use.  They have a solid point, solid big man, and a good young 2, Murph could flip around and actually help what looks to be a decent team on paper.

 

Why the Pacers do it. - Mainly to get out of Murphys contract.  Basically gaining one year off of it.  But it also gives us a solid big guy down low for Hibbert and Hansbrough to learn from.  Also, give Danny some help, some assurance that they are trying to give him talent, not hoping guys have career years.  Throw that in with maybe throwing in, and I know this is nuts, Marbury as a Free Agent Pickup (I can already see the negative comments, Im just throwing it out there).  That would be a fun, reallll competitive lineup.
