Keegan Murray on struggles: ‘I always have 100% confidence in myself’
Sacramento Kings rookie forward Keegan Murray spoke to the media prior to Monday’s matchup with the Phoenix Suns. The 22-year-old spoke about how he is dealing with his recent struggles, broke down the team’s three-game road trip, and much more.
Over the past 11 games, Murray is averaging 7.2 points per game on 32 percent shooting from the field and 26 percent shooting from beyond the three-point line. The fourth-overall pick from June’s NBA Draft is getting open looks on the perimeter, but the shots aren’t falling right now as the rookie has hit somewhat of a ‘rookie wall’ just 17 games into his career.
Murray will hope to find his three-point stroke on Monday as the Kings look to get back into the win column.

The Sacramento Kings entered the 2022-23 season hoping to break a 16-year playoff drought.

They continued to make moves over the summer, trading for Kevin Huerter and signing multiple free agents, including guard Malik Monk.
