Atlanta Hawks secure All-Star Dejounte Murray in trade with San Antonio Spurs

According to media reports, the Atlanta Hawks and the San Antonio Spurs have agreed a business deal for Degonte Murray. The All-Star strengthens the Hawks’ back area around Trae Young, but Spurs gets a lot of unprotected recruiting choices in return.

Danilo Gallinari moves to San Antonio in exchange for Murray, but the main prize for Spurs in this trade are three future first-round picks.

San Antonio receives a top 16 selection in the first round of the Hornets 2023 and 2025, and the first round of the 2027 Hawks, both unprotected. In addition, Spurs have the opportunity to switch their selection with the Hawks selected in the 2026 draft.

While San Antonio will likely focus on rebuilding after trading what is likely the team’s best player, the Hawks want to take the next step with young duo Murray and Young in the backcourt. Young said out loud Yahoo Sports Get “excited” about this trade.

The 25-year-old Murray scored career highs in nearly every category last season (21.1 points, 9.2 assists, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.0 steals 46.2 percent from the field and 32.7 percent from downtown) and is also an excellent defender. Murray has a teammate contract that will net him a total of $34.3 million over the next two seasons.
