A person within the Detroit Pistons organization confirmed Friday that the team will introduce Flip Murray, a guard, alongside Ben Wallace’s stand-in, center Nazr Mohammed, at a press conference early next week.
Terms of the deal could not be confirmed, but it is almost certain Murray will accept the team’s bi-annual exception, a $1.75-million salary slot for teams over the league’s salary cap to spend every second year on the free agent market.
Getting Murray at that price would be something of a steal. Murray (6-foot-3, 197 pounds) can play both backcourt positions and has been a spot starter throughout his four seasons. Via The Detroit Free Press
Two Flip’s on one team has got to be some kind of record. I hope this Flip doesn’t flop.
