The Jazz are reportedly "closing in" on a deal with free agent G Toure Murry.
The deal is reportedly worth $2 million over two years, enough to pry him away from other interested teams including the Heat and Knicks. Murry gives Utah affordable depth but he's unlikely to earn many minutes in a backcourt featuring Trey Burke, Dante Exum, Alec Burks and Ian Clark. Aug 12 - 6:39 PM

The Knicks may look to re-sign unrestricted free agent Toure Murry.

He's also drawn some interest from the Heat, Jazz and Clippers. Murry has yet to show he's capable of playing significant minutes in the NBA and never even really got it going when the Knicks were short handed in the middle of the season. He's likely to be an end-of-the-bench guy at best.

The Heat have interest in unrestricted free agent Toure Murry.

The Heat need a lot of help on the wing due to a lack of depth. Despite a solid 2013 summer league, Murry wasn't very impressive in the regular season at just 2.7 points per game. He'll likely get a camp invite somewhere.

The Jazz have expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Toure Murry.

Murry has also met with the Heat, but regardless of where he signs, he is not on the fantasy radar in any format. Murry averaged 2.7 points through 51 games with the Knicks during the 2013-14 season.
Jul 21 - 5:51 PM

The Los Angeles Clippers have reportedly shown interest in unrestricted free agent Toure Murry.

The Clippers interest is likely a reaction to Darren Collison's departure to Sacramento as Murry could serve as a lower-cost back up to starter Chris Paul. Murry only averaged 2.7 points over 7.3 minutes per game with the Knicks during the 2013-14 season, but is still only 24 years old and could grow into a solid bench option under the tutelage of Doc Rivers.
Jul 3 - 12:38 PM

The Knicks are not expected to make a qualifying offer to Toure Murry.

He will become an unrestricted free agent and the Nets, Bulls and Warriors are believed to be interested. Murry didn't get off the bench much in his time with the Knicks, playing just 7.3 minutes per game with a 2.7 points-per-game average.
Jun 30 - 12:19 PM

The Nets, Bulls and Warriors all have interest in Knicks SG Toure Murry, according to ESPN.com.

The Knicks have yet to offer Murry a qualifying offer to make him a restricted free agent, so there's a chance that the 6'5" guard will hit the open market in July. His appeal doesn't extend to fantasy leagues, however, as he finished his rookie season averaging 2.7 points while shooting 43.4 percent from the field and 59.0 percent from the FT line.
May 28 - 1:14 PM

Knicks coach Mike Woodson suggested that Toure Murry and Jeremy Tyler will play rotation minutes in the final two games of the regular season.

They each played exactly one minute in Sunday's victory, and the prospect of 15-20 minutes off the bench doesn't come close to giving them fantasy appeal. The Knicks can give Murry a $1.0 million qualifying offer for next season, while Tyler has a minimum deal which is only partially guaranteed, so both guys will be looking to impress on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 9:18 AM

Knicks assigned G Toure Murry to the Erie BayHawks.

Murry will get some burn on Friday night against the Springfield Armor. The rookie is expected back with the Knicks for Saturday's game against the Heat.
Jan 31 - 12:24 PM

The Knicks have recalled Toure Murry from the Erie BayHawks of the D-League.

Murry was sent to the D-League on Wednesday in order to get more practice time, and will rejoin the Knicks on Thursday. The rookie has played well in spurts, but his playing time (9.1 minutes per game during January) severely limits his fantasy potential unless there are some injuries in front of him.
Jan 30 - 11:42 AM

Toure Murry played 27 minutes off the bench against the Raptors on Sunday with 11 points, three rebounds, six assists, three steals and two turnovers on 5-of-11 shooting.

He played very well and coach Mike Woodson praised Murry after the game. Beno Udrih is also falling out of favor, so it wouldn't be a total shock to see the Knicks make a change. At this stage right now, I'm about playing the guys who are gonna play hard," Woodson said. He's only worth a look in very deep leagues for now since there is no hard evidence on a lineup change just yet.

Toure Murry will play the second-string point guard spot behind Beno Udrih on Wednesday.

The Knicks are going to start with Iman Shumpert on Russell Westbrook to help take at least some pressure Ben Udrih. Murry is a long way from having fantasy value, but he had a great offseason and could be fun to watch.

Toure Murry tweaked an ankle in Wednesday's game against the Bucks and did not return.

The team announced he was able to return, but he did not after his 10 minutes prior to injury. Murry had no points, two boards, one assist and one steal, so it's hard to imagine him having any sort of value in almost any leagues, especially with Beno Udrih's performance.

Toure Murry may have locked up a roster spot on the Knicks with Monday's game, scoring 12 points with five boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

He hit a fadeaway jumper from halfcourt to beat the third-quarter buzzer. The Knicks broadcast was buzzing about him for much of their time on the air and he looks to be the 15th guy on the team. Murry can make plays, but he won't be in the rotation while the Knicks are at full strength.
Mon, Oct 21, 2013 10:21:00 PM

Toure Murry appears to have made the Knicks opening-night roster.

C.J. Leslie looked to be ahead of Murry, but Leslie didn't get off the bench on Thursday, so his Knicks run is likely coming to an end. Murry looked great in the fourth quarter on Thursday, finishing with 14 points, two boards, two steals and one 3-pointer on 5-of-7 shooting. He's a bigger guard at 6'5", but is nothing more than emergency depth for New York.
