Salt Lake Tribune's Brian T. Smith Reports Jazz in talks to sign Draft Pick Kevin Murphy

You may remember the name Kevin Murphy -- he was our #47 draft pick this year. We talked about him at length here, and he played for our summer league team this year. In the summer league he averaged 8.6 ppg (42.5 fg%, only 2 made threes, a paltry 1.08 PPS), 2.4 rpg, 1.0 apg for us in five games. He did not play like a lotto pick, which is fine. He was not a lotto pick. But he still showed me a few things to hope he gets a chance to make the team / fill out the roster.

The good news is that the SLTrib's Brian Smith reported today that the Utah Jazz and Murphy's people are in talks to get a deal done.

Of course, Randy Foye is probably going to take his minutes this year; but I'm happy we have a rookie on the team (hopefully) so Enes Kanter and Alec Burks can shed their titles / duties as such.
