Toure’ Murry Signs With the New York Knicks

Free agent guard Toure’ Murry accepted the Knicks’ training camp offer, according to ESPN. Murry reportedly chose New York over the Miami Heat: “Sources said that Murry, following his strong summer-league showing with the Knicks, ultimately decided to try to build on his July success in a New York uniform despite receiving an offer to go to camp instead with the two-time reigning champions, who have only 13 players under contract. Murry won raves in the Las Vegas summer league for his hard-nosed play and defensive presence at 6-foot-5, most notably from Knicks legendary broadcaster Walt Frazier. Sources say that Frazier’s high praise was among the factors that convinced him to try to make the Knicks’ roster even after the recent signing of free agent Beno Udrih as a third point. The Knicks do still have a roster spot open for the regular season with only 14 contracts on their books, one shy of the league maximum. Murry and big man Jeremy Tyler, who signed a two-year deal with New York in early August, were known to be Knicks coach Mike Woodson’s two favorites from the summer league squad.”

    Loved what I saw from him in SL. Great defender, very aggressive. Glad he got an invite to camp.

    What really solidified his spot on the roster was when he was quoted as saying he was convinced the Knicks would be nba champions
