Dejounte Murray deserves to get a contract extension from the San Antonio Spurs. However, he was reluctant to think about it. Murray just wants to focus on delivering his team to penetrate the playoffs in 2019-2020.
According to the provisions, Murray deserves a contract extension before 21 October 2019. He would be a restricted free agent if Spurs did not offer a new contract. That was only if the San Antonio team made a qualifying offer for US $ 3.5 million.
Murray himself said he wanted to defend Spurs for a long time. It’s just that the focus is not there temporarily. He wants to deliver Spurs to the playoffs first. Remembering last season Murray failed to do it. Not because Spurs didn’t penetrate the playoffs, but because he was injured for a full season.
“I did not think of going there at all,” Murray said about the contract extension, per San Antonio Express-News . “Obviously, I want to be here as long as possible, but that is something I cannot control. All I can control is to be better, study and become a great person, to be Dejounte Murray. “
Next season at the same time become a venue for proof for Murray. He suffered an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury so he couldn’t perform last season. Derrick White replaced him in the front row. However, now Murray has recovered. He has even participated in preseason matches.
Head Coach Gregg Popovich also looks forward to it. He saw his foster children could play. Now is the time to see him return to the field in the regular season. Murray has recovered and is ready. (put)
