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.
Murry, 25, appeared in three games for the Wizards and there were discussions about signing him for next season, according to sources. But the guard sprained his ankle one day after signing his second 10-day contract, tweaking it in the fourth quarter of Monday’s loss to the Golden State Warriors.
The Washington Wizards plan on releasing guard Toure’ Murry Friday and signing guard Will Bynum to provide depth in the back court following Bradley Beal’s injury, according to people familiar with the situation.
