Jazz To Get Marshall In 4-Team Deal

The Utah Jazz would get Golden State Warriors forward Donyell Marshall in a four-team trade that has not been finalized.

Under the original deal, as reported Monday by the Deseret News, the Jazz also would acquire Bruno Sundov, a 7-foot-2 center from Dallas, and Bill Curley, a free-agent power forward from Golden State who also has played for Detroit, Minnesota and Houston.

The Salt Lake Tribune also reported that Sundov would go to Utah, but KUTV said Sundov was going to the Boston Celtics, and the Tribune and KUTV both said Curley was to go to Dallas. The Boston Globe reported that Sundov and Curley would go to Utah

The Globe also said the Celtics would get guard Robert Pack and center John "Hot Rod" Williams from Dallas. Both are in the final year of their contracts. The Globe said the Celtics would send guard Dana Barros to Dallas and forward Danny Fortson to Golden State while obtaining a first-round draft pick in 2001 from Utah and cash.

The Deseret News said Utah forward Scott Padgett would go to Dallas, but the Tribune and KUTV said that changed late Monday and Padgett would remain with the Jazz.

Utah would send forward Adam Keefe to Golden State.

The deal would mean that the Jazz would briefly re-sign Howard Eisley, the primary backup to John Stockton who passed on a five-year, $20 million contract last week. The Jazz would then trade Eisley to the Mavericks, who had planned on signing him with or without a trade.

The league must still make sure the complicated trade conforms to the NBA's collective bargaining agreement and salary cap.

Marshall was one of only eight players with a scoring-rebounding average in double figures last season in 30 or more games.

Last season, the 6-foot-9 Marshall averaged 1.2 points and a career-high 10 rebounds for Golden State.

He is a small forward who can also play power forward and provide reserve help behind Karl Malone and Bryon Russell.
