Report: Mavericks sign Troy Murphy

By Royce Young | NBA writer

First Eddy Curry and now Troy Murphy. What a week for the Mavericks.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Mavs have reached a one-year agreement to sign Murphy, a forward. Dallas already has 15 players on the roster after signing Curry, forcing them to waive out-of-favor guard Delonte West, meaning they will have to make a transaction to make room for Murphy.

That plan likely includes third-year guard Dominique Jones, who the Mavs have been said to be actively shopping.

Murphy, 32, spent last season with the Lakers, appearing in 59 games. He's a solid outside shooter and a capable stretch 4 for a team searching for depth. Which is exactly what the Mavs are after, especially with Dirk Nowitzki recovering from a knee injury.
