It is interesting to see that John Collins is not part of the trade, even if the franchise is not inclined to keep him in the roster.
For his part, Dejounte Murray was San Antonio’s top player last season, averaging 21.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 9.2 assists in 68 regular season games.
The young guard helped the Spurs reach the play-in tournament as well. Murray has two years and $34.2M left on his current contract with San Antonio.
