In a surprising turn of events, Shams Charania reported that the San Antonio Spurs are among the teams interested in trading for Dejounte Murray, who is now eligible for trade after a disappointing season for the Atlanta Hawks.

With a record of 14-21, the Hawks are seeking to become a serious title contender, and to do so, they are considering making some changes, among which they would be willing to part ways with Murray to achieve this goal.

It is crucial to keep in mind that Dejounte was traded to the Hawks in 2022 in return for three first-round draft picks, including 2025 and 2027 picks. Although it is uncertain what Atlanta will demand in exchange for the former Spurs player, it will be vital for the black and silver organization to retain some of these picks.

It's important to remember that Dejounte, who has always expressed his love for the team, angered Spurs fans with a series of tweets after he left. In addition, during an appearance on the All The Smoke podcast with Stephen Jackson, he criticized the team system and his relationship with Tony Parker, among other things.

It is a fact that a player like Dejounte Murray, who is already familiar with the organization, would be a perfect fit for the team. One that is trying to make the most of the arrival of Victor Wembanyama and Murray could be the perfect ally to help them both exploit their potential as players.
