   2013 Summer League rosters, Orlando Summer Pro League - Houston

Toure Murry

Murry was the 15th pick in the 2012 D-League draft by Austin, and was later traded to Rio Grande Valley in exchange for Patrick Sullivan. He spent the entire season on a Vipers roster stacked with talent, and averaged 23.4 minutes as a lynchpin on a roster that went through a huge amount of turnover. Murry, something of a combo guard, averaged 8.3 points, 2.8 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game, shooting 45% from the field and 36% from the three point line, the three point percentage bring the highest of his career to date. Murry, a big guard with versatility but not a defined position, is a good handsy defender and passer who likes to run, although he lacks next-level athleticism. His smarts, team-based instincts and passing vision are rather mitigated by a handle that is exposed under intense defensive pressure, and he is not a particularly good jumpshooter (which itself is a misnomer - Murry doesn't jump much when shooting). Murry's a role player, a quality and versatile role player, but he's a D-League role player.

   How the non-stars have helped revive the Knicks and Nets

Further to this, the new and considerably not improved version of Amar'e Stoudemire is nevertheless having some effect in his offensive bench role. Over the five games, Stoudemire has totalled 51 points and 33 rebounds - more Carl Landry than Karl Malone at this point, Amar'e is nevertheless providing size, offense and bench firepower from a team starved of all three. And further to that, the man who started the season as the team's fourth point guard (out of five), Toure Murry, has provided a welcome defensive influence. Barely playing to begin the season, Murry has seen more time recently in the absence of Pablo Prigioni, and used his combination of size, speed and good hands to become a significant defensive presence at the point guard position. Whilst he himself is limited offensively, Murry nevertheless brings energy, speed, a full-court game and intensity to a point guard spot normally manned by the antithesis of that, Raymond Felton. Prigioni brought the defense, but not the dynamicism, and with an extended run, Murry could potentially oust both him and Beno Udrih in the point guard rotation.

   Deadline looms for these unguaranteed players

New York - Cole Aldrich and Toure Murry: Murry has shown flashes in limited minutes, particularly defensively, and merits a longer stay. Aldrich meanwhile has had scant little opportunity on the court, but at least theoretically provides the interior defense and rebounding the Knicks sorely lack outside of Tyson Chandler, which works in his favor. Note that recent signee Jeremy Tyler's contract status is hitherto unknown.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
