The Golden State Warriors have agreed to trade Troy Murphy, Mike Dunleavy, Ike Diogu and Keith McLeod to the Indiana Pacers for Al Harrington, Stephen Jackson, Sarunas Jasikevicius and Josh Powell, NBA front-office sources tell ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

The trade is scheduled to be announced later Wednesday.

Seems interesting... Pacers look to be reshuffling their team to possibly get a draft pick, and the Warriors are well... honestly that whole trade confounds me.

Didn't the Pacers just put their fans through a whole offseason of drama regarding whether or not they'd sign Al Harrington. And now, here we are, three months later and they TRADE him? I know they had to get rid of Stephen Jackson for the sake of the team, but that's just crazy. Almost as if they're about to start a rebuilding period.

Meaning Jermaine O'Neal will undoubtedly be on the trading block once the deadline approaches.

Me too, unless it turns out later that a few of these pieces end up playing parts of other trades very soon.

EDIT: The local folks are crying hallelujah, so maybe the Warriors dumped a bunch of people who weren't getting along with Don "You Suck, Nellie" Nellie.

The Pacers are just admitting that O'Neal and Harrington just can't co-exist under Carlisle's system and getting rid of their controversy magnet.

The balance, in theory, is fairly even, it'll be interesting to see if the players thrive in new environments, while playing similar roles to before.

What the...?! We just got Al Harrington back only to trade him to Golden State? Why?

Any Warriors fans want to give me some good news about this trade, other than "at least you got rid of Stephen Jackson"? Please? I admittedly know very little about the four guys we're getting.
