Tim Kawakami is reporting that the Warriors have reached a buyout agreement with Troy Murphy, which should allow him to clear waivers and sign with an Eastern Conference team on Tuesday.
He agreed to sign with an East Coast team as part of the buyout, and will choose between the Heat, Celtics and maybe the Magic. He has to sign by Tuesday to be eligible for the playoff roster, which means he won't have much time for a 'flatter me' tour. We will have more details on Monday.
All 3 teams he's thinking about are ahead of us... If we claim TM, he cannot get what he wants, nor could a potential 2nd round opponent add to their roster.
Makes sense to me? Claim Murphy and sign Jeffries. Dump Mason and something else (Balkman)?
