SALT LAKE CITY (November 13, 2014) – The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has assigned guard Toure’ Murry to the NBA Development League’s Idaho Stampede, the Jazz’s exclusive D-League affiliate. Murry is expected to be in uniform for the Stampede’s season opener on Friday, Nov. 14 against the Erie BayHawks.
Murry (6-5, 195, Wichita State) played one game for the Erie BayHawks last season while on D-League assignment from the New York Knicks, recording 10 points, four rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes of action. He spent the 2012-13 season with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the NBA D-League, averaging 8.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 46 games (30 starts) en route to the 2013 D-League Championship.
The 6-5 guard signed with Utah as a free agent on Aug. 28. He has not yet appeared in a game this season for the Jazz.
Murry is the ninth different player in Jazz history to be assigned to the D-League, and the first under the new Jazz-Stampede single affiliation. Other players on the current Jazz roster with D-League experience include Ian Clark, Rudy Gobert, Jeremy Evans and Steve Novak.
Jazz fans can watch Murry and all the Stampede games on the NBA D-League YouTube channel and through a YouTube video player on NBA.com/dleague.
