Forward, #14

 

Signed to a one-year deal days before the start of the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, Murphy fulfilled a reserve role, coming off the bench primarily in support of starting forward Pau Gasol. The former first-round draft pick saw limited playing time in the early part of the season, but became a regular in Coach Mike Brown’s rotation at the end of January, averaging 18 minutes and 3.5 points per game through the first 40 contests. Murphy, who came to the Lakers following an injury-marred 2010-11 season with New Jersey and Boston, scored a season-high 12 points and had six rebounds against Charlotte on Jan. 31.
