Murray was given low expectations as a long-term project after being selected with the 29th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, but he ended up making more of an impact than originally expected and split time with Patty Mills as the backup point guard to Tony Parker. While a lingering groin injury forced him to miss double-digit contests, Murray ended up playing in 38 games, including eight starts, and ended the 2016-17 campaign with averages of 3.4 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 8.5 minutes. While those stats don't necessarily scream upside, it was Murray's late season production that sparked so much excitement. Against the eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals, Murray was a solid contributor with averages of 8.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 3.0 steals across 21.8 minutes. Looking ahead to the 2017-18 campaign, Murray has a huge opportunity ahead of him. Tony Parker is slated to miss at least the first three months of the season with a ruptured quadriceps, which leaves a big hole at point guard. Patty Mills, who re-upped on a four-year, $50 million contract, is the favorite to take over starting duties, but Murray could also be in the running with a strong training camp. If he does end up securing a starter's role, Murray could be a breakout candidate in just his second NBA season.

    The Spurs stopped Murray's unexpected fall from a potential lottery pick to out of the first round, claiming the point guard from Washington with the 29th overall selection in the 2016 NBA Draft. On a team as deep as the Spurs, Murray is going to be a pet project for coach Gregg Popovich and GM R.C. Buford, but after a couple years of tutelage, he may be ready to take the reins of the offense from the aging Tony Parker. While Murray wasn't a household name during his lone season in college, he arguably has as much long-term upside as anybody in the draft outside of Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram. His size (6-foot-5), length (6-foot-10 wingspan) and speed are elite physical tools that separate him from others at point guard. Point guards who average six rebounds and 1.8 steals per game in their first year of college are a rare breed, and it speaks to Murray's ability to do things that can't be taught. He has a long way to go, however, in areas of his game that can be improved through hard work. Murray shot just 28.8 percent on 3.5 attempts per game from three-point range, and he averaged just 4.5 assists in 33.5 minutes per game, despite demonstrating excellent vision at times and being a willing passer. He also averaged 3.2 turnovers per game, as his handle was occasionally loose. Those flaws won't be corrected overnight and arguably make him more likely than not to wash out of the league in short order, but the encouraging track record of the Spurs organization in terms of player development gives Murray a better chance at success than if he were to have landed almost anywhere else.
