Rumor: Spurs Interested in Troy Murphy

From Kori Ellis of WOAI:

The Spurs continue their quest for a bigman. Possibilities include unrestricted free agents Jarron Collins and Lorenzen Wright, or perhaps restricted free agents Melvin Ely (Charlotte), Darius Songaila (Chicago) and Jackie Butler (New York).

The Spurs will also look at trade possibilities.  Bucks center Jamaal Magloire and Golden State's Troy Murphy should be available, but the Spurs may not have enough to offer in trade.

Offensively Troy's perimeter game would be a great fit with Tim Duncan's interior one. Picking up Troy would put the Spurs ahead of the Mavs. It's great if you're a Spurs fan.

If you're a Warriors fan however, a trade with the Spurs does absolutely nothing for the Dubs. Putting aside Tim Duncan and Greg Poppovich, there's not a single player on their roster that would help the Warriors make the playoffs. Both Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are vastly overrated and owe their stardom to Mr. Duncan.

Would you trade Troy Murphy to the San Antonio Snores? Who would you want to pick up (aside from Tim Duncan)?
