Troy Murphy and the Golden State Warriors have come to terms on a buyout agreement making the forward a free agent. Murphy, who has not played since early January, spent the last few weeks on the Island of Misfit Nets before being traded to the Warriors on Thursday.
Murphy will be heavily pursued by both the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat as both teams look to make the final roster tweaks as they gear up for the post season.
In limited minutes this season, Murphy has averaged 3.6 points and 4.2 rebounds in only 18 games for the New Jersey Nets compared to the 14.6 points and 10.2 rebounds per game average he put up whilst playing regular minutes for the Indiana Pacers last season.
Expect the Celtics to be active as they have 2 roster spots available. The Miami Heat are currently at the 15 player roster maximum and would need to make a corresponding roster move should they sign a free agent.
