Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group is Murray’s agent. Paul represents Lakers superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, which is why numerous people around the NBA believe Murray will land in Los Angeles.

According to NBA insider Dan Woike of The Los Angeles Times, the Hawks wanted Immanuel Quickley and a first-round pick from the Knicks for Murray. Trade talks between the Hawks and Knicks didn’t go far and New York wound up trading Quickley and RJ Barrett to the Toronto Raptors for OG Anunoby.

Murray views the Nets as an ideal trade destination, according to NBA insider Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports. Brooklyn is looking to get more talent around Mikal Bridges.
