According to multiple sources, in a story broken by Sacramento's Grant Napier on Tuesday evening sports radio, owners and general managers are scrambling to put the finishing touches on a massive 8 team trade. Originally slated to include 6 teams and 16 players two other clubs jumped in on the action Wednesday night bringing the total players involved to as many as 19.

The Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers may go down as the franchise who started it all with their heavy shopping of guard Allen Iverson. Golden State is rumored to be the new home of the electric guard who has NBA Finals experience, an All-Star game MVP trophy, and a league in scoring to his credit. Golden State is set to send out forward Troy Murphy in the deal.

The Denver Nuggets are looking to settle the fued between head coach George Karl and disgruntled and oft-injured power forward Kenyon Martin. The New York Knicks have coveted Martin seeking to place the rugged forward alongside Eddy Curry. The Knicks are set to send out Steve Francis to make room for KMart. Also outgoing from Denver would be guard Andre Miller.

The Sacramento Kings appear on the verge of losing guard Bonzi Wells but will seek to sign and trade him in this massive scenerio. Meanwhile the Indiana Pacers will be sending out forward/center Jeff Foster, guard Jamaal Tinsley, and forward Stephen Jackson.

The Atlanta Hawks are in the action looking to sign and trade forward Al Harrington. The Seattle Supersonics are rumored to be the 8th team as they are looking to sign and trade Chris Wilcox who's contract negotiations have come to an impasse.

Eight other players are involved in order to make the salaries match under the current CBA rules.

A huge press conference is scheduled for Friday afternoon as long as all parties can agree and the league approves this NBA record sized transaction.

yeah right..8 team trade? It's like shuffling up the league.

Wow, this would be huge. The Warriors would be a lock to make the playoffs, but AI, Jrich, and BD trying to coexist?

If it's legit the Warriors got a steal with Iverson, all they give up is Murphy? No F'ing way!

I heard something about Bonzi's agent saying something about a 6 team trade on the radio a couple days ago but 8? I think Bonzi's agent was just trying to increase demand and open up wallets. And the site that's talking about the 8 team trade is just trying to get some traffic considering I've never heard of it before.

oh yeah?...well, you're bogus....how ya like that?

Why would GWS be interested in AI anyway? Baron and J-Rich are (apparently) an all-star caliber backcourt so I would focus on other needs... but getting him for Murphy and then trading him for other things would be smart.

I haven't heard anything else about this. This has to be just a rumor.

nooo way, when was the last time 2 teams can agree on something, let alone 8 teams ? if this does get done i will be pissed the Mavs haven't got in on it

07-16-2006, 01:05 AM
Yea hell the Mavs need to be the 9th team. You give up Troy Murphy and get AI in return? What will the Mavs get if they give up Stackhouse? I doubt this is true. Does seem a little word a journalist would just throw out a 8 team trade rumor out there lol but maybe that was his point. No way 6ers only get Murphy for AI. There would be a riot in Philly.
