Jamal Murray turned down contract for Kentucky

CIS9GW_UAAA42hy (1)Last week, Jamal Murray ended John Calipari’s recruiting drought (R.I.P April 2015- June 2015) after he committed to play for the Wildcats this upcoming season. Murray is the missing piece for next year’s team and apparently he chose Kentucky over more than just Oregon. According to Hype Hoops Canada, Murray turned down a seven-figure pro contract to play for Cal.

I don’t know about you all, but I am definitely excited to see Murray’s handling alongside Ulis and Briscoe in the back court next year.

    Wow. Jamal will get that money back by learning from Cal for a year.

    Let the idiotic “He gets paid more at Kentucky” references begin.

    One year in Cal/UK’s marketing machine, and he will make that money back many times over.

    After missing on about 5 players, I’m sure Cal and Wes backed up the truck for him.

    The title of this article really had me confused/worried. How about “Murray refuses pro contract, plays at UK instead” in order to eliminate any ambiguity. You have my email. I am available for consulting.

    I’ll bet that “pro” contract was an offer from that clown in Vegas trying to start up a team of McDonald’s AA players.
