Toure Murry barely got on the court last season with the Knicks, but in his limited minutes he showed potential. He had a couple strong games late in the season scoring in double digits, he paired will with Iman Shumpert and generally looked like a big guard who maybe could develop into a rotation player.

Looks like the Jazz may be the team to find that out.

Nothing is finalized but there is this from Marc Stein of ESPN.

The Jazz are a team who brought in Quin Snyder as coach to develop all their young talent — Gordon Hayward, Dante Exum, Trey Burke, Alec Burks, Rodney Hood, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter, among others. It’s not a bad gamble to throw Murry into the mix and see if he can become part of the rotation.

At that price, it’s a good gamble.

    Years ago the Knicks had a couple of ‘scrubs’ at the end of their bench named Doug Christie and Matt Barnes. Christie had a good NBA career and Barnes is still going strong. Toure Murry may be another guy like this.
