Nazr Headed to Oakland?

By Daniel Strickland on January 19, 2007.

Goodbye, Troy Murphy and Mike Dunleavy. Hello, Nazr Mohammed?

Yes, that’s right, the Contra Costa Times reports that the big man who has been a big disappointment to two world championship teams may now be headed to Golden State.

Since 29-year old Mohammed lost his starting job to 37-year old Dale Davis, he has scored just four points in 31 minutes, and has scored just nine points with 15 rebounds in the last five games. He spent Wednesday night’s loss to Utah on the bench.

Now that Chris Webber has joined the Pistons, Joe Dumars is looking to trade, and Nazr appears to be a prime candidate. Too bad he just bought a house in Detroit.

I don’t want to be traded,” Mohammed said on Thursday. “Nobody wants to be traded. I choose to come here. I want to win a championship with this team. I don’t want to start over with my family somewhere else.”

And a trade now means he would have to sell his recently purchased home.

“I didn’t buy to sell in three months,” he said.

Incidentally, Nazr’s stat line looks awfully similar to that of this Spur lately.
