Rumor: Sixers Listening to Troy Murphy Package for Allen Iverson

From Jack McCaffery of the DelcoTimes:

So King is listening [to trade offers for Allen Iverson]. He listened to Boston on draft night, and was willing to broker a deal that would have cost the Sixers Iverson, but would have landed them Randy Foye from Villanova. It's been reported that he's listened to Golden State about Troy Murphy. Atlanta was mentioned. Just a hunch, but when Iverson goes, it will be to a team that wasn't even rumored at all, because that's the way those things tend to work. When it happens, though, the story won't really be where Iverson will be playing next, but where he won't be playing any more.

Either way you look at it- to set up the fun trio of AI, BD, and JRich or to set up a future trade- moving Troy Murphy for Allen Iverson is a no-brainer. Iverson is a superstar and Murphy will probably never make an All-Star team.

AI's no scrub!

Would you move Troy Murphy (see recent Report Card), the Warriors' best rebounding big man, in a package for Allen Iverson?
