From InsideHoops.com NBA Rumors Commentary:
Yup, that pretty much sums it up. Even though T-Double recently earned a C+ on his Golden State of Mind report card, the Warriors shouldn't be in a hurry to trade him away. Sure, as a jumpshooting Power Forward Troy's game doesn't fit with the Warriors, but he is by far the best rebounder on a poor rebounding team. Now, Adonal Foyle and Mike Dunleavy...
Nothing stops Troy from grabbing those boards!
Also from today's Chat with Chad Ford (ESPN):
Chad Ford: They've talked to a number of teams about moving Murphy and have included Pietrus as a way of sweetening the deal. They had that offer on the table with Chicago for Chandler, but the Bulls decided to go with P. J. Brown because of the cap flexibility it gives them next summer. The Jazz have shown some interest in the past, but the truth is that they're running out of teams that would be willing to absorb that salary.
A Troy Murphy-Carlos Boozer trade makes a lot of sense for both teams, but sense hasn't exactly been a strong point for the Warriors (mis)management.
