Looks like Troy Murphy is headed to Boston.
Highly coveted free agent Troy Murphy is signing with the Boston Celtics. Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that Murphy has chosen to join the Celtics after spending the much of the past 48 hours agonizing between Boston and the Miami Heat since reaching buyout terms with the Golden State Warriors
Troy Murphy HIMSELF confirms to ESPN.com that he is going to Boston. B-O-S-T-O-N
Also, the twitter-verse has agreed. With trading for Green, signing Murphy, and having 2 guys on the roster named O'Neal, we're officially celebrating St. Patrick's Day a couple weeks early.
Assuming he can recapture his form, Murphy is a better outside shooter than Davis and a far better defensive rebounder. That’s not to say he will pass Davis in the rotation. Davis is much better defensively and he’s also proven to be an integral part of the Celtics, but Murphy gives Rivers another option, and again, that’s what all of Ainge’s maneuvering is really about.
Good, solid signing in my opinion.
