Flip Murray considering offer from Efes Pilsen
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.
