Dejounte Murray has made a name for himself this season, as he became a first-time All-Star, and showed that he is one of the best defensive guards in the league. There's no doubt that he's had a very productive year, averaging 21.1 PPG, 8.3 RPG, and 9.2 APG.

There have been some reports that have suggested that the San Antonio Spurs would be willing to trade Dejounte Murray. The most notable team he has been linked to is the Atlanta Hawks, and there have been reports that Trae Young and Dejounte Murray would like to play on the same team.

It was recently reported that the San Antonio Spurs are asking teams for "four first-round picks" in any Dejounte Murray trade. There's no doubt that this is a lot to ask, but since Dejounte Murray could be a difference-maker for a team, perhaps it could end up being worth it.

There is no doubt that Dejounte Murray is one of the more underrated point guards in the league, partly due to the fact that the San Antonio Spurs ended up missing the playoffs. However, while he hasn't been able to be the No. 1 option on a playoff team yet, he could definitely slot in nicely as a No. 2 offensive option behind an established superstar.

It remains to be seen if any team ends up giving the San Antonio Spurs the draft compensation that they desire. It is clear that they are trying to have a retooling season next year. Perhaps they could end up developing younger players like Keldon Johnson and Josh Primo, and become a powerhouse team in the future. The Spurs could also draft an elite prospect in next year's draft if they trade Dejounte Murray to rebuild, and we'll see if they end up doing so in the future.
