Troy Murphy agreed to a deal with the Boston Celtics this morning, ending Boston's pursuit of Powe. Since Powe was bought out by the Cavaliers before the March 1st deadline, he can theoretically take his time before making a final decision and still be eligible for his eventual team's playoff roster.
W/Boston signing Murphy, Cs out of Powe discussions. Boston looking for wing with other roster spot. Powe keeps talking w/NYK, NO, MEM, MIA.
