Warriors trade teams with Indiana


At least, they just about do that.

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 [sign in to see URL]'s Marc Stein.

I know I'm the only Warrior fan to do so, but I"m sad to see Dunleavy go. But I'm even more sad to see Murphy [sign in to see URL]'s always been a favorite blue-collar player of mine.

Is Stephen Jackson a SF or a SG? If he's a SF will he start over Pietrus? If he's a [sign in to see URL] will he fit with J-Rich and Monta playing the 2?

But, I think it's a great trade for the W's because they're giving up two big, fat, and ugly contracts.

Re: …


Jackson is a guard, atleast he was last time he was relevant. I think it might be too soon to tell better end, early signs say Warriors but Indiana was dying to get rid of Jackson. Dunleavy is a Dukey and they never seem to live up to hype in NBA. One way I think it may swing towards Indiana is if Ike and Troy can play like he did a couple seasons ago again. I would not count out Larry Bird's eye for talent either. I think it is a fair trade and could help both teams in the end, but thats just me.

I wanted to add: I heard Jackson may be dumped at the first sign of trouble so he is walking a thin line and maybe that will inspire him to keep his mouth shut.

My intial reaction is that the Warriors got the up hand on the deal. However, if Diogu pans out and shows signs of what he did as a rookie, the Pacers could have the best player down the road.

The Warriors did a good job of getting rid of huge contracts (Murphy and Dunleavy) who weren't seeing significant minutes. Diogu was scoring when he played, but he wasn't a fit in Nelly's high tempo style, and reportedly had trouble grasping the Nelly's style of coaching.

Harrington is the best player involved in the deal at the present time, and should add stability down low for the Warriors. He creates matchup problems for less athletic PF's and should really fit in well with Nelly's up tempo style. Jackson is athletic, a good player, but let's just hope he keeps his mouth shut, plays solid basketball and stays out of trouble in Oakland.

Overall, I think this trade is the best Mullin has made, and gives the Warriors a better chance to make the postseason. Let's hope they use this trade as leverage to make another deal before the February deadline.

technically, Jackson was the Pacer's swingman. However, he never met a 3 he didn't like so he seemed like a guard-- but he always played SF to Foster's Center, O'Neal's PF, and Reggie's SG

(Yes, Jermaine O'Neal was a PF, hard to believe)
