Warriors buy out Murphy five days after trade
By Sports Network
OAKLAND - The Golden State Warriors and forward Troy Murphy reached a buy-out agreement on Monday, just five days after acquiring him from New Jersey.
Murphy was acquired by the Warriors on Wednesday in a deal that sent forwards Dan Gadzuric and Brandan Wright to the Nets. The Warriors also received New Jersey's 2012 second-round draft pick in the trade.
Terms of the buy-out agreement were not available, and after the move Murphy was placed on waivers.
This marks the second stint in Golden State for Murphy, who was selected in the first round, 14th overall, in the 2001 draft by the Warriors. Murphy, 30, played five seasons with Golden State before being traded to the Indiana Pacers during the 2006-07 season.
He was acquired by the Nets in the offseason in a four-player deal.
During his 10-year NBA career, Murphy has averaged 11.8 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists with Golden State, Indiana and New Jersey.
