Rumor: Murphy and #9 to the Bulls for #2, #16, and More $ for Pietrus

From Sam Smith of ChicagoSports:

The talk late Tuesday involved Golden State looking to unload some long-term contracts so it can resign Mickael Pietrus. The Warriors are willing to deal former Notre Damer Troy Murphy and the No. 9 pick for the Bulls' No. 2 and 16 picks. Murphy would give the Bulls a perimeter big man who can shoot and open the floor for Chandler. The ninth pick would give them a shot at a big guard like 6-7 Ronnie Brewer of Arkansas or a big man like Connecticut's Hilton Armstrong. It was the hottest rumor on draft eve, though probably not likely.

Do you want the Warriors to trade away Troy Murphy (see recent report card) and the #9 pick for the #2 and #16, plus the ability to give Pietrus a more lucrative contract extension?

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