Murray missed the entire 2018-19 season after tearing his right ACL in the preseason. The Spurs can’t wait to see Murray and Derrick White wreck havoc together this season. Both players are stout wing defenders.
Murray averaged 8.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists during the 2017-18 season for the Spurs while shooting 44.3 percent from the field, 26.5 percent from beyond the arc and 70.9 percent from the free-throw line.
The Spurs lost to the Denver Nuggets in the first-round of the 2019 playoffs in seven games. They will be a more explosive offensive unit this season with Murray back in action running the offense.
