Murphy, a 6-foot-10 forward out of Florida, was a second-round pick by the Chicago Bulls last June. He appeared in 24 games, averaging 2.6 points before being waived on Thursday. To make room for Murphy, the Jazz cut ties with Biedrins, a veteran center who never made an impact in Utah after being acquired from Golden State.
