Flip Murray considering offer from Efes Pilsen

As the Memphis Grizzlies weigh signing free-agent guard Flip Murray, Murray is weighing European interest.

Sources close to the situation said Tuesday that Murray -- who auditioned for the Grizzlies in a workout before Christmas -- has been offered a contract by perennial EuroLeague contender Efes Pilsen in Turkey.

The 31-year-old Murray, who averaged 9.9 points in 75 games last season for Chicago and Charlotte, has been looking for a new team since the summer.

One source said Murray turned down a non-guaranteed offer from guard-stacked Golden State earlier this season.

The Grizzlies also worked out Larry Hughes with Murray and could soon make a signing to bolster their 13-man roster, with guard depth and perimeter shooting both areas of need.

Teams can start signing players to 10-day contracts Wednesday.
