Rumor: Warriors Looking to Move Dead-Weight Contracts for Allen Iverson

New, comments

From Peter Vecsey's article The Answer is... Here's the Lowdown on Allen's Destination in the New York Post:

The Warriors are as active and aggressive in diving on Iverson's loose body as any team. Not to keep A.I. (and you thought Don Nelson was seriously about playing smallest) but to re-route his $49M, two-years-to-go debt along with at least one of their dead-weight contracts - Adonal Foyle, Troy Murphy or Mike Dunleavy. Jason Richardson is the guy King has coveted for some time. However, his surgically repaired knee is hurting (swollen) - and not only in the healing area.

Let's just put it this way:

  • Adonal Foyle: $42 million over 6 years (currently in year 3 of the deal with a team option for year 6)
  • Troy Murphy: $58 million over 6 years (currently in year 2 of the deal)
  • Mike Dunleavy: $44 million over 5 years (currently in the 1st year of the deal)
  • Moving one of these bad contracts for AI? Priceless.

Which of these contracts are you most eager to move in a deal for Allen Iverson? (Haha and no, all 3 doesn't seem that likely.)
