ESPN Player Evaluations

Strengths:
Murphy is a very skilled with that has great size for the small forward position. He scores with athletic slashes to the rim where he can finish with either hand. Mid range pull ups and opens threes are also good weapons for Murphy. He is an excellent ball handler and passer with a matching basketball IQ. Murphy is a good decision maker and does a great job of taking what the defense gives him.

Weaknesses:
Murphy must add strength and should be more aggressive given his skill set because he could add to an already productive output. Murphy could be a better rebound and a more consistent shooter from behind the arc although his is pretty good at this stage of his game.

Bottoms Line:
Murphy brings great size, skill and feel for the game to the small forward position. He is a match up problem because of his size and even could be a face up power forward in a small line up.
