We told you about this a few days ago — the Nets were looking to move Troy Murphy and if it wasn’t going to be as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal then it likely would be to Golden State.

Now it looks like that deal is going to go through, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo (via twitter).

As had been rumored before, the deal is Dan Gadzuric and Brandan Wright to New Jersey for Troy Murphy and a second-round pick. There are some reports that a third team may get involved and the deal could expand, but this simple two-team deal is far more likely.

The Warriors may just buy out Murphy, in which case a number of contenders may contact him. Orlando, Dallas, Miami and Boston are rumored to be interested.

    Question, what would be the purpose of trading for a player only to buy him out? In this case, would it be to get the Nets’ 2nd round pick?
