Utah Jazz recalling guard Kevin Murphy from D-League

The Utah Jazz are recalling rookie guard Kevin Murphy from Reno of the D-League, according to an NBA source via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Bill Oram of the Salt Lake Tribune confirmed the move via Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey.

Murphy, a second round pick (No. 47 overall) in last year's NBA Draft out of Tennessee Tech, averaged 13 points for Reno during a six-week stint. The Jazz assigned the 6-6, 185-pound guard to Reno on Nov. 26.

Recent injuries, including starters Mo Williams and Marvin Williams, helped open a spot for Murphy.

Oram tweeted that Murphy's maturation and development have impressed the Jazz.
