From the outskirts of the Greater Toronto Area
Born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario, where most didn’t expect Canada’s top basketball prospect would arise from. Starting out at a young age playing and training with his father Jamal was keen to play the game.
Jamal blew up on the high school scene handling his opponents viciously both on the AAU circuit and high school season. Unstoppable he became and highly touted before making a big splash in attending University of Kentucky.
Already seen as a top prospect with his previous play, Murray went on to “wow” the scouts with consistent and stellar play.
In the 2016 NBA Draft Jamal was selected 7th by the Denver Nuggets. Introduced to the world as young and fresh talent ready to do whatever it takes to make his name known. Coming a long way Murray is growing on his Nuggets fans as a top young talent in the NBA.
