In less than 24 hours, a new batch of talent will arrive in San Antonio via the NBA Draft. Shortly after that, Murray will see who comes and goes in free agency. Don’t expect him to pay too much attention, though. He’s still using this time to get ready for September. “I can’t wait (until) training camp because I’ll know who is on my team and who is not on my team,” Murray said. “I’m just excited to get to work. I want a championship bad, and I just want the players to want it as bad as me. So, if we all get on the same page and get a championship, then everybody is successful.”
Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray recently spoke with his former high school coach. The conversation left Mike Bethea convinced his former star player is poised to bounce back strong next season from the preseason knee injury that sidelined him for the entire 2018-19 campaign. “He is feeling really good, feeling stronger,” Bethea said. “He (said he) is just really excited and eager to get back and go to work.”
From a camaraderie standpoint, injured point guard Dejounte Murray’s presence on this trip has given the Spurs a boost. “To have him around, feel his energy, hear his voice, it’s a great thing,” guard Bryn Forbes said after shootaround Tuesday morning at the Pepsi Center. “And I think it’s good for him too.” But the main reason Murray is accompanying the Spurs on the road throughout the playoffs is to learn more about the game, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.
