SALT LAKE CITY – Mo Williams and Kevin Murphy are set to be Jazzmen next year. The Jazz drafted Murphy on Thursday and Williams is headed back after a 4-team trade.

Murphy, a 6-foot, 7-inch, 185-pound guard was selected in the 47th overall pick. Murphy scored 2,019 points, grabbed 535 rebound and had 248 assists in his 4-year career at Tennessee Tech. He averaged 20.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 34.5 minutes last season.

Williams played for the Jazz as a rookie in 2003-2004 but was traded to Milwaukee the next season. He’s been shuffled around to Cleveland and the Clippers but the Jazz have made a deal with the Clippers, Rockets and Mavericks that brings him back to Utah. The trade also sends Lamar Odom back to Los Angeles.

Williams has averaged 13.8 points a game in 10 seasons.
