Troy Murphy requests trade from Nets, given leave from team


Troy Murphy — and his $12 million expiring contract — will not be part of a Carmelo Anthony trade, it appears.

But he will be part of some trade.

He has requested a trade from the Nets and was told to stay at home away from the team until GM Billy King can arraign that, according to a tweet from Al Iannazzone of the Bergen Record.

This is not that uncommon a scenario and will not impact the Nets, Murphy has played only in two of the team’s last 10 games and sparingly in those. The Nets had planned to move him. The question of what for now will be the interesting part.
