Drafted No. 15 overall by the defending champion Austin Toros, Toure Murry was traded to Rio Grande Valley for NBA D-League veteran Patrick Sullivan. For the Vipers, the Wichita State product will be leaned on as a defensive stopper.
Why It's Good For Him: The Vipers traded guard Ben Uzoh to Springfield in another trade and Uzoh's departure should free up time for Murry. He projects as a 2 or a 3 and he's likely to play many different roles on the wing. Defense is his calling card -- being athletic and 6-foot-5 can do that for a player -- and the Rockets already have plenty of scoring in the backcourt now that James Harden is in town. Murry could evolve into a high-energy defensive stopper off the bench for Houston or another team.
