An updating list of trades at the NBA Trade Deadline. Posted by EOB staff

Brandan Wright AND Dan Gadzuric TO NEW JERSEY FOR Troy Murphy AND 2012 SECOND ROUNDER


New Jersey receives: Brandan Wright and Dan Gadzuric

Golden State receives: Troy Murphy, 2012 second-round pick

Analysis: For the Warriors, this is nothing other than a payroll move. Murphy will almost certainly be bought out Thursday with potential suitors being Boston and Miami. They save a good amount with this deal and only really lose Wright, who has been horribly mismanaged in his time as a Warrior. So maybe a new look will suit him.

The Nets have been desperately trying to move Murphy who just hasn't fit into Avery Johnson's system. They get a couple big bodies with one of them having a wrinkle of potential. Maybe with Wright playing with Deron Williams, he can discover some of the talent we all know he posseses.
