Murray, 33, also has played with Cleveland and Toronto. He has career averages of 11.3 points and 2.9 rebounds in 736 games.

In four preseason games, Murray averaged 4.5 points and 3.5 rebounds.

The 19th overall pick by Utah in 2002, Humphrey was out of the league last season. The 6-8 forward has averaged 2.3 points and 2.2 rebounds in 85 career games with Memphis and Orlando.

Humphrey appeared in five preseason games, averaging 2.3 points and 1.0 rebounds.

Williams, who signed with the Clippers on September 29, averaged 5.8 points and 1.0 rebounds in four preseason games.

Robinson also signed with the Clippers on September 29. The guard averaged 4.3 points and 1.7 assists in three preseason games.
