Top Trey Murphy III News

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Goes off for 30 in LVSL victory

    Murphy finished Monday's Las Vegas Summer League game against Atlanta with 30 points (10-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-9 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

    As a second-year player who played a meaningful role for New Orleans last season, Murphy is the clear alpha dog on this Pelicans summer roster, and that was explicitly clear Monday night. The Virginia product knocked down three three-pointers and worked his way to the line nine times in a game the Pels eventually won by 28 points. Murphy will likely step into a slightly larger role in the rotation next season, but the Pelicans are bringing back most of their major pieces on the wing, so he'll still play behind Herbert Jones and Brandon Ingram.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Gets hot from deep

    Murphy had 14 points (4-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes during Friday's 105-101 victory over the Clippers.

    Murphy hit two threes during a 10-0 run in the fourth quarter that gave the Pelicans a 101-94 lead. The rookie converted three attempts from beyond the arc in the final frame and connected on at least four in the same game for just the fourth time this season. The unlikely hero will look to stay hot against the Suns during Round 1 of the playoffs.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Shifts to bench Wednesday

    Murphy will come off the bench for Wednesday's play-in game against the Spurs, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    With the Pelicans going back to their usual starters after resting several of them for Sunday's regular season finale, Murphy will head to the bench as Brandon Ingram (hamstring) and Herbert Jones rejoin the starting five. In his lone start of the season Sunday, the rookie totaled 15 points, six rebounds, one assist and two steals across 27 minutes of action.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Will start finale

    Murphy will start Sunday's game against the Warriors, Pelicans broadcaster Erin Summers reports.

    With several regulars out, including Brandon Ingram (hamstring) and Herbert Jones (lower leg), the Pelicans will turn to a younger starting five featuring Murphy on the wing. The rookie out of Virginia has mostly played a small role off the bench this season, but he's picked up more minutes over the last month and should be set for a notable leap in playing time Sunday. Back on March 11, Murphy saw a season-high 28 minutes and posted 32 points, nine rebounds and two assists in a loss to Charlotte.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Pops for 21 off bench

    Murphy ended Sunday's 116-108 victory over the Lakers with 21 points (7-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and four rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench.

    The rookie forward had scored only 23 points in his prior five games combined, but Murphy nearly matched that output Sunday as he helped the Pelicans put together a huge comeback win against one of the teams they're battling for a spot in the play-in tournament. He's only scored in double digits four times all year, but three of those performances have come in the last nine contests, a stretch during which he's averaging 10.6 points, 3.2 boards, 2.1 threes and 1.4 assists in 19.4 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Explodes for 32 points off bench

    Murphy posted 32 points (12-20 FG, 7-12 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds and two assists over 28 minutes during Friday's 142-120 loss to the Hornets.

    Murphy was recalled to the Pelicans on Wednesday and put on a show Friday. The rookie had played fewer than five minutes in each of his last five appearances at the NBA level, but with CJ McCollum (COVID-19 protocols) and Brandon Ingram (hamstring) both sidelined, he garnered an increased role off the bench and didn't disappoint. Before Friday, Murphy had scored in double figures just once -- 12 points against the Pistons on Feb. 1 -- and had grabbed a season-high six rebounds on three separate occasions. Given his career-high performance, the two-way player out of Virginia figures to have earned an increased role down the stretch.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Recalled to New Orleans

    Murphy was recalled to the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Murphy has played fewer than five minutes in each of his last five appearances for the Pelicans. However, the rookie may see an increased role off the bench Wednesday if Brandon Ingram (hamstring) is sidelined for a second consecutive contest.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Assigned to G League

    Murphy was assigned to the G League's Birmingham Squadron on Sunday, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Murphy has played fewer than five minutes in each of his last five appearances for the Pelicans, so he figures to get extended run during his stint in the G League. Across four games with the Squadron, the rookie is averaging 27.8 points, 9.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Goes for 19 points in loss

    Murphy notched 19 points (4-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and a block across 33 minutes in Monday's loss to Agua Caliente.

    Murphy made his second appearance at the G League level Monday, and while he was unable to repeat what he accomplished in his previous contest with the Squadron, he was still one of the team's best players. Expect him to be one of Birmingham's go-to guys on offense while he plays with Birmingham.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Assigned to G League

    Murphy was assigned to the G League's Birmingham Squadron on Monday, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Lopez relays that Murphy will be available for Birmingham's contest against the Agua Caliente Clippers on Monday night. The 21-year-old finished with 33 points (13-27 FG, 5-14 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and three steals during his only other appearance at the G League level.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Solid performance off bench

    Murphy totaled 12 points (2-5 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and five rebounds across 15 minutes during Tuesday's 111-101 win over the Pistons.

    Murphy made his first appearance Tuesday after a seven-game absence due to COVID-19 protocols. He was technically available for Monday's contest as well, but he didn't see the court, which hasn't been unusual for the rookie. However, Murphy made his presence felt off the bench against the Pistons by scoring a career-high 12 points to go along with five boards. He's only averaging 4.0 points and 2.2 rebounds in 12.8 minutes per game, but he may get some extra looks in the second half of the season if New Orleans falls further out of the playoff picture.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Available Monday

    Murphy (COVID-19 protocols) will be available for Monday's contest against the Cavaliers, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Murphy has missed the last six games due to the NBA's health and safety protocols. While he's available, it's unclear how much playing time the rookie will actually get. He's averaging just 12.8 minutes per game across 36 appearances, but the Pelicans have already ruled Brandon Ingram (ankle) out and Josh Hart (knee) is questionable, so there may be an opening for him to garner a larger role than usual.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Clears protocols

    Murphy (COVID-19 protocols) doesn't appear on the Pelicans' injury report ahead of Monday's game in Cleveland.

    Murphy was placed in the league's health and safety protocols Jan. 24, but his absence from the injury report implies that he's not only been cleared to rejoin the team, but also indicates that the Pelicans have no concerns about his conditioning. While Murphy is on track to suit up Monday, he wasn't part of the rotation prior to missing time and may not get minutes, especially if one or both of Brandon Ingram (ankle) and Josh Hart (knee) -- who are listed as questionable -- are able to play.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Murphy was placed in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Monday, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    Murphy recently returned from a G League assignment and was initially expected to be available for Monday's game against the Pacers, but he'll now be unavailable for most, if not all, of the team's four-game Week 15 schedule. The rookie out of Virginia hasn't been a part of head coach Willie Green's regular rotation of late.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Back from G League

    Murphy was recalled from the G League on Monday.

    The rookie out of Virginia was sent down to Birmingham to play in the Squadron's game against the Austin Spurs on Sunday, which he finished with 33 points, 11 rebounds and three assists. He had a strong summer league and preseason, but Murphy hasn't made much of an impact at the NBA level this season. Prior to the G League assignment, he'd appeared in only two of the Pelicans' last nine contests.

  • Trey Murphy: Heading to G League

    Murphy was assigned to the G League's Birmingham Squadron on Saturday.

    Murphy had been with the parent club since mid-December, but he appeared in just two of the last nine games and averaged 2.5 minutes per contest during that time. He should see additional run in Birmingham.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Non-factor in loss

    Murphy closed with one steal across two minutes during Saturday's 120-105 loss to the Nets.

    Murphy has played just eight minutes over his last three appearances for the Pelicans. The rookie first-round pick will likely get sent to the G League to get some extended run soon if he remains out of the Pelicans' rotation for much longer.
