The San Antonio Spurs may have a relative bargain on their hands in Dejounte Murray.

At 19 years of age, the point guard still has a lot of growing to do, but can learn from one of the greats in Tony Parker as he finds his NBA legs.

During his one season with the Washington Huskies, Murray averaged 16.1 points per game and 4.4 assists during his 34 appearances in college basketball. But it was his athleticism that really caught the eye.

Drawing early comparisons to Russell Westbrook, who oft considered the most athletic player in the league, the teenager has a lot of upside and could be a huge building block as the Spurs continue to move past the era of Tim Duncan, Parker and Manu Ginobili.

Murray hasn't even joined up with his new franchise yet, but he is putting in a lot of practice ahead of his rookie season, in one video posted on his official Twitter handle, the guard showcased his athleticism with a seriously impressive self alley-oops in a game of 2v2.

He will have a lot of competition at the point from Parker and Patty Mills, but time is on his side and a big future is expected of the Seattle native.
