San Antonio Spurs' Dejounte Murray declared he was all about staying in the team's practice gym in the offseason and it seems he is making good on that promise.

Murray recently shared videos of his workouts as he continues to rehab his surgically-repaired right ACL ahead of the 2019-20 season.

One video shows him working on his outside shot an area he needs improvement on heading into the new season while both show him taking contact and attacking the rim.

Murray did not play during the 2018-19 season due to the knee injury he suffered in the 2019 preseason.

Murray underwent successful surgery to repair the tear in November and has steadily been progressing. He has has been sharing updates on his rehab this season, letting all know he is on the mend and raring to go ahead of next season.

"He does his workouts. He does everything we want him to do," said head coach Gregg Popovich. "He’s always happy go lucky with everybody and every member of the staff."

There's much to look forward next season from the young point guard.

Last season, Murray was named to NBA All-Defensive Second Team, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to be named to an All-Defensive Team. He appeared in 81 games, averaging 8.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.20 steals in 21.5 minutes last season.

"He is excited about next season and he has been like that since the beginning of his rehab," Popovich said. "He has been going on the trips with us this last part of the season to be part of the group. He’s been really upbeat and positive through the whole thing.”
