Dejounte Murray (born September 19, 1996) is an American professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played one season of college basketball for the Washington Huskies, where he earned second-team all-conference honors in the Pac-12 as a freshman in 2015–16. He was selected by the Spurs in the first round of the 2016 NBA draft with the 29th overall pick.
As a freshman at the University of Washington in 2015–16, Murray was named second-team All-Pac-12 and Pac-12 All-Freshman Team after averaging 16.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.8 steals in 33.5 minutes while starting all 34 games.
On June 23, 2016, Murray was selected by the San Antonio Spurs with the 29th overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft. He joined the Spurs for the 2016 NBA Summer League, and on July 14, he signed his rookie scale contract with the team. On October 29, 2016, in the Spurs' third game of the 2016–17 season, Murray made his NBA debut. In just under nine minutes off the bench, he recorded two rebounds and one assist in a 98–79 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. On January 12, 2017, he scored a season-high 10 points in a 134–94 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. He surpassed that mark on January 19, scoring 24 points in a 118–104 win over the Denver Nuggets. He became the youngest player in Spurs history to score at least 24 points, breaking Tony Parker's record. During his rookie season, he had multiple assignments with the Austin Spurs of the NBA Development League.
On May 5, 2017, with Tony Parker ruled out for the rest of the playoffs with a leg injury, the Spurs opted to start Murray at point guard in Game 3 of their second-round series against the Houston Rockets. He scored two points in 15 minutes, as the Spurs took a 2–1 lead in the series with a 103–92 win. He helped the Spurs clinch the series against the Rockets with 11 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists in a Game 6 win. He became just the fourth rookie in Spurs history to record a point/rebound double-double in a playoff game, joining David Robinson, Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard. The Spurs went on to lose to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.
In the Spurs' season opener on October 18, 2017, Murray had 16 points, five rebounds and two assists while starting in place of Parker in a 107–99 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Five days later, he had 16 points and 15 rebounds in a 101–97 win over the Toronto Raptors. Murray's 15 rebounds were the most by a Spurs guard since Manu Ginóbili had 15 against Toronto in 2008.
