The Utah Jazz waived center Andris Biedrins and acquired Erik Murphy, a six-foot-ten rookie forward. The Latvian center made appearances in six games, grabbing 17 rebounds and scoring three points on the season before being waived by the Jazz. Murphy was waived by the Bulls after being drafted in the second round last June. The rookie appeared in 24 games, averaging a little more than two points for Chicago.
