Rumor: Troy Murphy Not in Trade Talks

You knew it wouldn't last long. Here's today's first conflicting report via Mike Spellman of the Daily Herald:

The Bulls have been mentioned in a number of rumors involving Philadelphia's Allen Iverson. The Bulls have no interest in adding Iverson but have sent word that they're open to being involved in a three-team swap if the deal makes sense.

One holdup is the Bulls would like to keep their players with expiring contracts until the Feb. 22 trade deadline, in case a better opportunity comes along.

The Bulls might have interest in Golden State power forward Troy Murphy, but his name has not come up in trade talks, according to a team source. The Warriors have been mentioned as one of the teams looking at Iverson.

You have to love these rumors. If you've been following them closely, Troy Murphy always seems to be the first name to come up on the rumor mill for the Warriors. However, this report says that his name has not come up in trade talks this time around.

On a side note, a Troy Murphy- Ben Wallace big man tandem might be a match made in heaven. They're both great rebounders, but aside from that completely opposite players. It just might be crazy enough to work on the hardwood.


All the rumors:

99% of rumors never happen, but 99% of them are fun to talk about!
