SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz have signed Kevin Murphy to a free agent contract. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because Murphy has already spent part of a season with the Jazz.
Murphy was selected by Utah out of Tennessee Tech in the second round of the 2012 NBA draft (47th overall pick), and he played in 17 games for the Jazz while also playing in the NBA D-League. With the Jazz, Murphy averaged 0.9 points in 3.1 minutes.
Following the 2012-13 season, Murphy was sent to Golden State as part of a three-team trade in July 2013.
Last year, Murphy played with the Idaho Stampede, which is Utah’s new D-League affiliate, where he was the league's second-leading scorer with 25.3 points per game, while also averaging 5.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists. Murphy also played for Strasbourg IG in France prior to playing for Idaho.
Earlier this month, the Jazz announced the signings of Dee Bost, Jack Cooley and Brock Motum. The signing of another free agent, former New York Knicks guard Toure’ Murry, is expected Thursday.
