TWO BITS: Murphy to Celtics, Reed still injured

1 » Former Florida Gators forward Erik Murphy, who was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers just this offseason, will be shipped from Cleveland to the Boston Celtics as part of a four-player deal that results in the Cavs acquiring F Keith Bogans. ESPN.com‘s Marc Stein and Jeff Goodman reported the deal Thursday evening. As a result of the move, Murphy will be on his fourth NBA franchise before the start of his second professional season. He was selected with the No. 49 overall pick in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls but saw just 2.6 minutes per game in 24 contests before the team waived him on April 3. Two days later, the Utah Jazz claimed Murphy, but he never suited up for the franchise. On July 22, Utah shipped Murphy and two other players to Cleveland for a 2015 second-round draft selection and cash. Murphy spent the summer playing for Finland in the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup. He averaged 6.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, shooting 38.7 percent from the field, 27.3 percent from downtown and 63.6 percent from the charity stripe. The good news for Murphy? The Rhode Island native played high school basketball in Southborough, Massachusetts, and grew up a Celtics fan.

Healthy Percy Harvin runs wild Thursday for Seahawks; Gators NFL depth chart

Hoping to play a full regular season for the first time since 2011, a healthy and rejuvenated Percy Harvin opened eyes on Thursday as a game-breaking wide receiver, ball-carrier and returner for the Seattle Seahawks, which hosted the Green Bay Packers in the 2014 NFL Kickoff game.

Helping Seattle trounce Green Bay 36-16, the former Florida Gators standout racked up 160 all-purpose yards for the Seahawks, 100 of which were from scrimmage. Harvin led his team in receiving with seven catches for 59 yards (including a 33-yard reception, his longest since Oct. 7, 2012) and finished second in rushing with four carries for 41 yards, adding 60 return yards on three kickoffs just for good measure.

Harvin’s game-breaking ability should be a boon for Seattle all season. The 2009 NFL Rookie of the Year is arguably the most electric player in the league, a characteristic many forgot but were reminded of last season when he opened the second half of Super Bowl XLVIII by bringing a kickoff back for a touchdown.
