Jamal Murray is a Canadian professional basketball player who currently plays for the Denver Nuggets in the National Basketball Association (NBA).
Murray was born on February 23, 1997, in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.
He grew up playing basketball and was heavily influenced by his father, who played professionally in England.
Murray played one year of college basketball at the University of Kentucky, where he was named to the All-SEC First Team and the SEC All-Freshman Team.
He was selected by the Denver Nuggets with the seventh overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft.
He quickly established himself as a key player for the team, earning NBA All-Rookie Second Team honors in his first season.
In the 2020 NBA playoffs, Murray helped lead the Nuggets to the Western Conference Finals with a number of impressive performances, including a 50-point game in Game 4 of the first round.
Murray is known for his scoring ability, particularly from beyond the arc.
He is also a strong ball-handler and passer, and has shown a willingness to take big shots in clutch situations.
Murray has represented Canada in international competition, including the FIBA Basketball World Cup.
However, he has also dealt with injuries in recent years, and his status for future international tournaments is uncertain.
