Should Warriors consider trying to bring back Troy Murphy?

Obviously the Warriors have had to battle with injuries to their big men with most recently Anthony Randolph, so why not  try to bring back Troy Murphy, there have been rumors that the pacers want to get rid of his contract. Yes, Troy has battled his own injuries but if he can show hes healthy over the next couple of weeks why not go for it? His $11m salary can match up with a lot of the warriors expiring contracts.

Murphy has been playing at a high level when healthy posting up percentages of 50% fg, 40% 3pt, 80% ft to go along with his usual production of 15pt and 10reb. He could come and be the 3rd consistent scorer we lack behind ellis and maggette. Plus he would still be under contract for the 2010-2011 season, which at the end of that season the warriors SHOULD know if randolph or wright is the future PF of this team or whether they should simply try to resign troy.

People have brought up Boozer and West, yet I have my objections to both. Boozer would simply be a short-term rental, while he would help the team this season, realistically we are not making the playoffs. I see no way that he would resign with the warriors. When it comes to West, who i wouldn't mind seeing as a warrior, I see no way the hornets would trade him to us without giving up one of our top players(maggette, randolph, etc). Yet the pacers might be willing to give up Murphy with Granger and Dunleavy coming back from injuries and being able to fill their two starting forward spots. Maybe a combination of 3 of  Claxton, George, Radmanovic, or Bell's contracts plus a 2nd round pick does the trick. Think the warriors should look into the possibility?
