The 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m), 200 lb (91 kg; 14 st) point guardshooting guard played college basketball at Shaw University, after attending Strawberry Mansion High School in Philadelphia, where he starred on the basketball team. He is nicknamed "Flip" as result of doing gymnastics when he was younger.[1]

Murray was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round of the 2002 NBA Draft, after being NCAA's Division II Player of the Year during his senior season at Shaw. He has played for the Bucks, the Seattle SuperSonics (where he developed as a scoring threat in 2003–04, substituting for Ray Allen who missed 26 games due to injury, averaging 12 points in 25 minutes, while appearing in all 82 matches).

On February 23, 2006, he was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Mike Wilks and cash considerations.[2] In his brief stint with the Cavs, he averaged his career-highs in nearly every category.

On July 18, 2006, Murray signed with the Detroit Pistons for $3.6 million (US) over two years, in an effort to improve the team's bench depth.[3] In the 2006-07 NBA season, Murray started eighteen games (twelve in place of point guard Chauncey Billups and six in place of shooting guard Richard Hamilton).[4]

On February 22, 2008, Murray was waived by the Pistons.[5] On March 1, he was signed by the Indiana Pacers.[6] There was an expectation the Los Angeles Clippers would sign Murray,[7] but he elected to go with the Pacers instead.[8]

On August 13, 2008, Murray signed with the Atlanta Hawks.[9]

On September 25, 2009, the Charlotte Bobcats signed Murray reportedly to a one year 1.99 million dollar contract.[10]
