The Kings forward spoke to Yahoo Sports NBA writer Krysten Peek about Sacramento ending its long playoff drought.
KRYSTEN PEEK: What does it mean to you to join this organization and be such an integral part in ending that long streak?
KEEGAN MURRAY: Yeah, I mean, it’s something that I really started looking at during the draft and it was a place I really wanted to go, just because of that, just trying to end that drought. I know it’s not a popular place or thing that got us in the league, but it was a place I really wanted to go and try to change, or help change the culture. So I feel like just continuing to build on that, and I feel like there’s a lot better years to come.
KRYSTEN PEEK: I don’t think a lot of people know this, but you’re leading all rookies in 3 pointers this year. Was that something– was that a goal of yours coming into the league, like you wanted to make a statement from behind the arc?
KEEGAN MURRAY: I mean, I just try to fill a role on the team. With our team, I mean, we have two all-stars. We have Kevin Huerter who’s on 3 point contest, so just trying to figure out my role on the team, and how I space the floor, and knock down shots, so I feel like I’ve done a good job of that so far year, and just trying to get better at it every single day.
