Snapshot: Murphy, the nine-year veteran out of Notre Dame, fell on very hard times this season, missing most of the season injured, then being dealt, released, signed, then benched. The amount that Murphy seemingly aged between his age 29 and 30 seasons made a lot forget that he is just a year removed from averaging a double-double and being a focal point for his team.
It is my opinion that Murphy was the victim of continual change and injury this year, and that his forgettable year is more the exception than the rule. His track record supports that notion. With the right team next season, Murphy could regain status as a starter or significant role player, because he's certainly not finished at the turn of his thirties.
Chances of staying with current team: 10 percent. The Celtics took a flier on Murphy after he was released by New Jersey, and with a glut of big men on one-year deals, the Celtics will look to clean house next season. Even if they chose to retain any of their current bigs, Murphy would be third or fourth on that list.
