Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Murphy is coming off the best shooting performance of his three-year college career. He made 50.3 percent of his shots from the field, including 43.3 percent from the 3-point line, and made a remarkable 92.7 percent of his free-throw attempts. He has a long frame and is dependable on defense, making him an ideal "3 and D" player who could appeal to a variety of times in the back half of the first round.
ANALYSIS
Positives: Murphy is a slick shooter, especially from beyond the arc, and those can be hard traits to find in the draft. He never shot lower than 43 percent from 3-point range during his college career, and his improvements in free-throw shooting (from 72.5 percent to 82.4 percent to 92.7 percent) indicate that he has fine-tuned his shot even more. He is quick on defense and could be versatile in guarding multiple positions.
Negatives: Murphy is not a prototypical four- or five-star prospect who is making the leap to the NBA. He did not stand out as much in high school, initially earning a two-star grade before committing to Rice and later transferring to Virginia. He had a late growth spurt and does not have tons of experience playing at the "3" or "4" position, so he still could require some development in that area.
