Paolo Banchero and Dejounte Murray

Paolo Banchero and Dejounte Murray Exchange words on Instagram After Viral Pro-Am Dunk

Atlanta Hawks guard Dejounte Murray and Orlando Magic rookie Paolo Banchero hit the court in Tacoma, Washington at the Zeke-End tournament, hosted by Isaiah Thomas, but the action and friction between them spilled off the court and onto social media. 

As reported by Sporting News, the pair, both originally from Seattle have been ever-present at Seattle’s summer runs, both turning out at Jamal Crawford’s CrawsOver just a week earlier, but this time, things got heated.

Murray gave Banchero an early ‘welcome to the league’ moment, hitting the No.1 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft with a highlight-reel pump fake, finishing with an alley-oop off the glass to himself.  

As if the move wasn’t humiliating enough, Murray decides to let the 19-year-old know all about it.

After Muray posted a clip of the dunk on Instagram, Banchero responded, telling the All-Star to ‘stop sending doubles’ before Murray hit back saying he had ‘lost all respect’.

With no love lost between them, circle your calendars for the first Hawks vs. Magic matchup of the season.
