Checking in on former San Antonio Spurs around the NBA
The Spurs traded Dejounte Murray during the offseason as the team was looking to move into a rebuild. While the Hawks have been questionable throughout the season, Murray has been the lone consistent performer on their roster.
Though his usage is down compared to his All-Star season in San Antonio, Murray has averaged 21.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 6.0 assists per game on 46.7% shooting from the field. It hasn't been long enough to evaluate Murray's time away from the Spurs, but there is no doubt he will be in this league for a long while.
One of the biggest shocks for Spurs fans during the 2022 trade deadline was the team dealing fan favorite Derrick White to Boston. Since then, the 28-year-old has enjoyed newfound success in a different role. Making an NBA Finals appearance last season, White has become a darling for his defensive versatility that has helped the Celtics maintain a top spot in the Eastern Conference. From getting married to welcoming his first child, White has had a lot of celebratory personal news over the last couple of years. Don't expect White to fade on the hardwood either, as he will be an integral piece in the Celtics' pursuit of another championship.
After getting traded and subsequently waived by the Raptors, Drew Eubanks landed in Oregon suit up for his hometown Trail Blazers. In Portland, Eubanks has found new life and locked himself into a rotation spot within Chauncey Billups' rotation. The former Spurs two-way player is shooting a career-high 68.8% from the field while averaging 5.1 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.
