The Toronto Raptors waived veteran forward Lamond Murray on Friday.
Murray, an 11-year NBA veteran, was acquired from the Cleveland Cavaliers on Aug. 25, 2002. But the six-foot-seven, 235-pound Murray averaged just six points, 2.7 rebounds and 15.1 minutes in 95 games with the RaptorsToronto general manager Rob Bab***** wanted to clear a roster spot and allow Murray to sign with another team.
”He was the logical choice. We’re loaded at his position,” Bab***** said. ”He wasn’t going to play that much so this makes sense for both parties.”
Murray began his NBA career with the Los Angeles Clippers in 1994-’95. He has appeared in 679 career games, scoring an average of 11.9 points.
