Murphy Will Force Teams Into Making Choices, Says King

Troy Murphy got the call about the Nets trade right after landing in Hawaii for vacation.  So he hasn't been formally introduced yet.  When he is, expect Billy King to say what he's told USA Today: "He gives Brook [Lopez] space. ... Teams have to make a decision. They can help on Brook or leave the shooters." That and Murphy's rebounding rate were the key factors in bringing Murphy back home to New Jersey.

"He gives us a veteran guy who can spread the floor for Brook and rebounding. You rebound in this league you can win," King said.  Speaking of rebounding, ShamSports reports via Twitter than the Nets gave Sean May a $100,000 partial guarantee on his vets' minimum contract.  The Nets signed May in the midst of the Murphy trade negotiations.
