Woodson tipped his hand tonight, giving strong indication combo guard Tour'e Murry is close to nailing down roster
spotg. The big guard shot 5 of 7 for 14 points in his second straight bonanza game. With small forward C.J. Leslie getting a DNP, it's clear the undrafted North Carolina State forward is headed toward the chopping block. That's the opening Murry likely will get. Murry played excellently in the summer league in Las Vegas and hasn't disappointed. Woodson said afterward he believes Murry can make it as "a good pro.'' Leslie? His erratic play in Vegas and during camp means at best, the Knicks try to keep him for their D-League team in Erie after cutting him in an attempt to develop him. After all, they did give him half a guarantee - more than $200,000. Lots of scouts on hand tonight in Baltimore, perhaps partly to see Leslie and center Cole Aldrich, who is being outworked by Ike Diogu and Josh Powell in the battle for the final big-man spot. Leslie is not deserving of one of the 15 slots even though Grunwald loved him coming out.
