According to my sources, Troy Murphy has a serious offer on the table from Crvena Zvezda in Serbia (financial terms not disclosed). There is no word if his contract would have an NBA-out clause allowing Troy to return to the states following the Lockout. Adam Morrison, who signed this past week to play for coach Svetislav Pesic, has no such out clause. With a potential frontline of Morrison, Murphy, and Darko Milicic (rumored to be mulling an offer as well) this could be a banner year for Red Star in the Adriatic League.
According to agent Dan Fegan, the current offer is not enough to lure Troy overseas. Red Star is better off going after a young NBA bigman, with a smaller pricetag and more hunger. Solomon Jones of the Pacers would be a great pickup.
Troy Murphy has signed one-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.
