Kamari Murphy, a 6-foot-8 sophomore post player from Oklahoma State, has received his release from Oklahoma State, New York Lightning coach Dana Dingle told SNY.tv.
A Brooklyn native and former player at Lincoln High School and IMG Academy, Murphy averaged 6.1 points and 6.3 rebounds last season.
“He’s just open right now, just seeing who’s interested and all of that,” Dingle said. “No one school in particular.”
