With free agency arriving – Knicks could be onto the next with assets to be in the mix for Dejounte Murray
The Knicks have 11 first-round picks over the next seven drafts and have cleared $30 million in cap space. newsday.com/sports/basketb…4:42 PM

One way to convince skeptical Spurs fans about the wisdom of a Dejounte Murray trade would be to negotiate the terms with the New York Knicks. – 3:36 PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
Brunson is already a fait accompli — and can confirm Knicks interest in Dejounte Murray — as reported by @Marc Stein last week and @Ian Begley today. Who wouldn’t be interested? Some execs think it’s a smoke screen. Murray has two years at $16m per left on his current deal. – 3:21 PM

The decision on Danilo Gallinari’s guarantee is tomorrow for the Hawks, but player/team can agree to push it back. Danilo has $5 mil guaranteed – the Hawks may need to guarantee more to match in trade (say it was Dejounte Murray, Gallo would need $11.6m* locked in) *ATL under tax – 4:04 PM

Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
I am completely blown away by the idea of the Spurs trading Dejounte Murray to tank for a potential 28 percent chance of landing either Wembanyama or Henderson. You don’t trade young All Stars. You build around them – 3:33 PM

Rumor: Spurs on verge of trading Dejounte Murray to Hawks for picks, not John Collins nba.nbcsports.com/2022/06/28/rum…7:40 AM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
One of my favorite things about Dejounte Murray maybe going to Atlanta is that pairing Trae Young with a high-usage limited shooting point guard basically forces him to start moving off of the ball. – 4:41 PM

i would not trade dejounte murray. that is all. – 4:19 PM
