After Trade Deadline, Celtics May Add Warriors F Troy Murphy

Troy Murphy is still a member of the Golden State Warriors, but with a buyout expected soon, he'll be free to sign anywhere in the NBA, and it looks like he could be headed for the Boston Celtics.

Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix has already speculated that the Celtics will be going after him, and notes that Troy Murphy has wanted to come to Boston for his entire career. And it would be kind of perfect, wouldn't it? It was a joke when I asked if the Celtics could replace Luke Harangody with Brian Scalabrine, but in all seriousness, it would be absolutely fantastic if Troy Murphy took his place.

Because the Celtics need an Irish Catholic white guy, okay? There's a quota here, and if it's not filled, then somebody gets fired. Or, somebody should get fired. And jokes aside, for a Celtics team that just lost a lot of size, adding a forward as talented as Murphy would be quite a coup. Stay tuned.
