The career of Toure’ Murry has been interesting to watch this offseason as he’s gone from a player who no one had heard of to a guy that more than a few contenders were interested in trying to grab for their bench.
While the Los Angeles Lakers aren’t looking to be contenders this season, they are looking to get better in anyway they can and that apparently included looking at Toure Murry before anyone could offer him a contract.
According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, while the Jazz are finalizing a deal with Murry at the moment, the Los Angeles Lakers were among the teams interested in signing him first.
The Miami Heat were another reported suitor for Murry and the Los Angeles Lakers, sources said, expressed interest in Murry this week before the Jazz secured a commitment from the 24-year-old.
Murry is an interesting name in that he isn’t an established anything in the NBA but teams like the Heat, Knicks and Lakers were interested in his services. He’s heading to Utah to be a part of whatever the Jazz are putting together, but it isn’t before plenty of interest in the young player mounted from some of the more well established teams in the NBA.
