Dejounte Murray has been traded to the Atlanta Hawks for Danilo Gallinari, three future first-round picks, and a pick swap.
After a complacent offseason last year, the Hawks make a big time move to bring in the all-star guard. The blockbuster deal will pair Murray with Trae Young to form one of the league's most dynamic backcourts. Murray will likely take a backseat to Young, but with not a ton of scoring on the roster beyond him, he should still have ample opportunity to produce. I would expect there to be more roster turnover for Atlanta, so it will likely have to wait until free agency is over to fully assess Murray's new value.
Dejounte Murray is becoming increasingly likely to get flipped by the San Antonio Spurs. The Hawks, Knicks, and Timberwolves are the known suitors.
The all-star guard has been in the whirlwind of trade rumors for the last couple of weeks and it seems the rumors may reach a breaking point soon. The Knicks will likely provide the most opportunity for Murray to put up similar numbers, but he could fit well alongside Trae Young or the Timberwolves young core.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have reportedly expressed serious interest in San Antonio guard Dejounte Murray.
Murray's name has been floated around the league's trade rumors for the past few weeks now, with the most recent report saying that the Spurs are looking for "at least" three first-round picks in return. Whether or not Minnesota is willing to give up that draft capital is unknown, but they are the most recent team to be in on the all-star guard. A trade with the Timberwolves would also likely include D'Angelo Russell heading to San Antonio.
According to Quinton Mayo, the Spurs have asked any possible suitors for "at least" three first-round draft picks in exchange for Dejounte Murray.
After an all-star studded season, Murray has found himself at the center of heavy trade interest in recent days. According to multiple outlets, the Hawks have been the biggest threat to trade for the guard including offering the Spurs two first-rounders and John Collins which was swiftly rejected. Quinton Mayo, a Washington reporter said that the Spurs "benchmark" for Murray is three first-round picks. The growing consensus around the league is that Murray will be moved at some point this offseason but the suitor remains unclear.
According to Jake Fischer, if the Spurs were to trade guard Dejounte Murray, it would require a "Jrue Holiday-like package" in return.
