Rumor: Mike Dunleavy, Troy Murphy, and Jason Richardson All Available on Trade Market

Here's a snippet from Sam Smith for ChicagoSports.com:

There will be plenty of Warriors available as coach Don Nelson and general manager Chris Mullin criticized Mike Dunleavy and Troy Murphy last week in the San Francisco Chronicle. Word is also out that Jason Richardson is available.

Haha, Warriors Nation already knows that Dunleavy and Murphy have been available for quite some time now. There's absolutely nothing groundbreaking about Smith saying that. The question is who actually wants them at their price? It's one thing to say that spoiled milk is available, it's another thing to say someone actually wants to buy it.

The most interesting part of Smith's tidbit on the Warriors is that JRich is available. If Smith is correct and not just speculating, that would would be a tough pill to swallow for Warrior fans. Sure, JRich didn't come to camp ready and had his surgery way too late, but the man's attitude and work ethic are exactly what this team needs to erase the losing culture haunting this franchise. Don't forget, he's the one that stood up and apologized to fans after last year's debacle, even though he gave his all night in and night out.

One thing's for sure, if Chris Mullin and Rod Higgins let another trading deadline pass with nothing to show for it, they're in way over their head and show no signs of running a competent NBA front office. There's no reason they should be leading the Warriors front office past this season if they can't shakeup this talent-depraved roster.

Do you see JRich, Murph, and Dun all on the Warriors past the February 22nd deadline?
