ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks have added some versatility to
their backcourt by signing free-agent guard Flip Murray. The six-year NBA veteran can play both guard spots. He joins Maurice Evans as free-agent additions to the backcourt after the Hawks lost sixth man Josh Childress, who stunned the team last month by signing with Greek powerhouse Olympiakos.
The 6-foot-3 Murray was released by Detroit last season before
signing with Indiana. He started the final 15 games of the season
at point guard for the Pacers. He averaged 11 points and 3.5
assists in that stretch. Terms of the deal were not announced.
