Former Wichita State guard Toure Murry turned his NBA Summer League stay with Minnesota into a training camp invitation, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

Murry played in eight games in Las Vegas and averaged 6.4 points and 2.8 assists for the Timberwolves. The invitation to training camp doesn’t guarantee him a spot on the 15-man roster.

Murry, a 6-foot-5 guard, spent last season with the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League. He averaged 11.5 points, 4.7 assists and 4.1 rebounds in 45 games. He last played in the NBA during the 2014-15 season when he spent four games with Washington.

NBA training camps begin in late September and early October.
