NBA Comparison: Shaun Livingston/Jamal Crawford

Strengths: Combo guard with tremendous handles and versatility … Prototypical basketball body with great length, big wingspan (measured at 6'9.5 in 2014) … Explosive athlete, who should become more so as his body fills out … Electric ball handling ability with crossovers and ball on a string type dribbling ability … Has great quickness and shifty moves to evade defenders and get to the rim, or get opponents off balance and create space to pull up … Shows the ability to score in a variety of ways … Great feel for isolating and creating points off the dribble … Good finisher around the rim on drives … Flashy player with great speed in the open floor and elusive moves in traffic … Has added intrigue with his versatility to play either guard position … Tremendous rebounder for a guard (6.4 per game) … Very good pick and roll ability for his age … Has the potential to be a lock down defender and is already one of the better guard defenders in the Conference in his freshman season … Mature kid. Surprisingly disciplined considering his skill level. Shows a completely different game in the structured environment of college ball, as opposed to his free wheeling, showmanship in pick up games and while in AAU or All Star games. A natural showman, but really understands how to tone things down and play disciplined when it's called for …

Weaknesses: At 170 pounds, obviously could use some strength to help finish off drives and stay on balance after contact … Still somewhat inexperienced, with just a season of college under his belt. Must work on his shooting. A sub-30% three point shooter as a freshman, though not shy about taking it and shows decent form … Still inconsistent. Has had a number of poor performances scattered amongst tremendous games … Must improve upon decision making, value the ball more and cut down on turnovers. 4.8/3.3 a/to ratio isn't terrible considering his age, but obviously in need of improvement … More of a scorer than facilitator, and will need to become better in creating offense for others … Decent FT shooter at 70% but obviously can be improved upon …

Notes: Pronounced "Duh-JON-tay" ... Measured 6'5 (in shoes) 162 lbs, with a 6'9.5 wingspan at the 2014 Kevin Durant Skills Academy ... Was not considered an elite level recruit, missing out on most of the high profile HS showcase games, despite showing huge potential … Scored 34 points on 10/14 shooting in an overtime win over Arizona St. on February 3rd … Washington native and NBA standout Jamal Crawford has taken Murray under his wing and acted as Big Brother and Mentor to him …
