With the 29th pick in the NBA draft, the San Antonio Spurs selected Dejounte Murray. He was 1 of just 2 college freshman last year to average at least 16 points, 5 boards and 4 dimes and the other one was drafted with the 1st pick. And just like Ben Simmons, the former Ballislife All-American impressed during the summer league with performances such as a clutch 20 points, 9 assists, 4 boards and 4 steals one vs the Kings.
On Sunday, Murray returned to Seattle to play alongside his mentor, Jamal Crawford, in the Seattle Pro-Am All-Star game and just like his mentor, he put on a show and impressed with a triple-double: 22 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists.
