The San Antonio Spurs have signed point guard Dejounte Murray to a four-year, $64 million extension, according to Shams Charania. He's the only player under contract for that season and is the only non-rookie with a fully guaranteed contract past 2020-2021.

Two days before the start of the National Basketball Association regular season, the Spurs announced that they have signed Murray to a contract extension.

Murray, 23, is entering his third season after missing the entire 2018-19 campaign with a torn ACL. He shot 44.4% from the floor, 78.6% from the free throw line and went 3-for-5 on three-pointers in the five exhibition games.

Seguin tweeted he was safe but shared before-and-after pics of his severely damaged home, which he had recently listed for sale. Severe storms moved through the region into early Monday morning, causing additional damage in Arkansas and Tennessee .

Two years ago, in his last full season with the Spurs, Murray was selected to the NBA's All-Defensive Team, the youngest player in National Basketball Association history to receive that honor.

Without question, Murray is a focal point for the Spurs organization heading into a bright future and will embody the Spurs way no matter how these next few seasons play out.

Murray appeared in 81 games (48 starts) for San Antonio in 2017-18, averaging 8.1 points and 2.9 assists. With Murray at the helm, they hope to be able to make a substantial leap up the defensive leaderboard.
