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.
If they expand to Europe, I don't think there are enough hot markets to make more than four or six would work for now. The teams would almost have to be in France and Italy, with maybe Germany or the Netherlands too.
