Alex Murphy plans to leave Duke at the end of the semester, sources told CBSSports.com.

Murphy, a 6-foot-9 sophomore forward from Rhode Island, has played in just five games this season for the Blue Devils, totaling 33 minutes and five points. Last season, he averaged 2.1 points in 31 games.

He redshirted his freshman season after arriving from St. Mark's (Mass.).

Florida could be a logical destination, given his older brother, Erik, just finished his four-year career with the Gators. Erik was drafted in the second round by the Chicago Bulls.
