Toure Murry RumorsAll NBA Players
Toure’ Murry and Damion James are expected to play for the Washington Wizards in the upcoming Las Vegas summer league, according to people with knowledge of the situation. Both players are familiar faces for the Wizards; James was with the team for training camp and preseason last year, and Murry joined Washington on a 10-day contract in March. The Wizards cut James, a 6-foot-7 forward, near the end of last year’s preseason. He was one of a few players competing for the 15th spot that Rasual Butler earned. James, 27, then spent most of the season in the D-League.

Toure’ Murry, who was a minor hit with the Knicks last season, ends his stint in Utah having played more for the team’s D-League affiliate than with the Jazz, where he logged just one minute. Agent Bernie Lee, who represents Murry, doesn’t think his client was given a fair shake in Salt Lake City. “Utah just didn’t see value in giving (Toure’) a real opportunity to prove himself, which is their right,” Lee told HoopsHype. “I had a sense things were working against him early when during the Jazz’s first open scrimmage in the preseason the team-employed radio voice used the forum to crush his future NBA prospects. Just an odd situation through and through. He went to Utah as a young developing point guard who played 51 games for an extremely visible team and today leaves Utah having played his last game as an assigned player in the NBADL having been asked to play the four. Perspective and opportunity are a funny thing in basketball.”
Lee said Murry will explore free agent opportunities if he clears waivers: “If there isn’t a spot for him immediately, he will enter the NBADL and go on to continue to develop and prove himself as an NBA-caliber PG.”
Aaron Falk: Waiving Murry clears the way for the team to add Elijah Millsap. @Tony Jones reports he could be with the team as early as tomorrow.
