Ronald Murray — Murray spent last year in Turkey, unable to find NBA work. With his athleticism and skills starting to fade, his inconsistent-but-explosive scoring ability now lacks for explosiveness. Nevertheless, he still has skills and experience.

Ronald Flip Murray - Murray went unsigned this summer after a pretty poor season split between the Bobcats and Bulls. He went to China to look for a contract, but was unable to get one, and was similarly unsuccessful at a workout with the Grizzlies last month. He remains unsigned, and is a reasonable candidate for an NBA return some day.

It is not a surefire thing that any ex-NBA talent can just bowl up and play there. Some, like Chris Hunter, don't want to, declining the big Chinese monies in favour of a tiny D-League one on the presumption and/or gamble that a midseason NBA call-up might be forthcoming. And a good many more tried and failed - players to have tried out for a spot in China this summer include, but are not limited to, Eddie Gill, Patrick O'Bryant, Will Conroy, Ronald Murray, Rashad McCants and Rafer Alston. In recent years, the CBA has become an even more attractive place to play, and thus has been able to become pickier.

Ronald Murray - Murray continued his inconsistent career with an inconsistent season. Some years he's good, some years he's not; last year, he was not good. Murray shot only .392% from the field and .312% from three point range, and, as is his style, he didn't do much other than shoot. He has probably played his way into minimum salary roles only now, if that. Murray was genuinely useful in 2008/09, but he's too unreliable to be relied upon.
