Murray was originally drafted seventh overall by the Clippers out of California in 1994.

As a rookie, Murray averaged 14.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 31.6 minutes in 81 games. During his five years in Los Angeles, Murray averaged 11.6 points and 4.2 rebounds.

The Clippers traded Murray to Cleveland for Derek Anderson and Johnny Newman in August 1999. Last season, Murray averaged 3.4 points and 10.1 minutes in 57 games with the New Jersey Nets.

The Clippers opened training camp in Santa Barbara on Tuesday, two days after returning from Russia, where they played exhibition games.
