NBA Rumors: Spurs & Hawks In Blockbuster Talks Over Dejounte Murray

In a surprising development, the San Antonio Spurs are rumored to be fielding calls for their All-Star guard Dejounte Murray, who broke out last season in a big way, averaging a near triple-double. 

The "most significant discussions regarding Murray" according to Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report have been held with the  Atlanta Hawks, in a blockbuster package that would send John Collins to San Antonio. 

The Hawks are apparently looking to add another dynamic ball-handler and supreme backcourt partner for Trae Young. Certainly, Murray fits that bill. 

Hilariously, Murray himself is watching the rumors on social media, and responded on Twitter:

"Uh Ohhhhhhhhh 🍿". 

The 25-year-old Spurs guard averaged 21.1 points, 9.2 assists and 8.3 rebounds in a spectacular season that blew away his career-highs across the board.

Would the Spurs even consider trading the newly-minted All-Star? Fischer writes "there’s a sense among NBA executives that San Antonio is still open to an extended rebuild, and Murray’s inevitably expensive contract extension is already looming on the horizon."
