Muursepp was drafted in the first round of the 1996 NBA draft by the Utah Jazz but was traded to the Miami Heat for a future pick shortly after the draft. He appeared in ten games for Miami, averaging 1.7 points per game, before the trade to Dallas.

After the season, the Mavs traded the 6'9 forward, along with Bubba Wells, the draft rights to Pat Garrity and a number one draft choice, to the Phoenix Suns for point guard Steve Nash.
He elected to leave the U.S. due to the 1998-1999 NBA lockout and his career took him to great international success. Muursepp spent three seasons in Greece where he won the 2000 Saporta Cup and the 2000 and 2001 Greek Basketball Cups with AEK Athens. From there he moved to Russia EuroCup Finals MVP playing with Russia's UNICS Kazan.
He returned to his native Estonia in 2006 and ended his playing career in 2007 playing in Austrailia with the Melbourne Tigers where he played alongside his former Mavericks teammate Chris Anstey forming what the Tigers called their "Twin Towers".
Muursepp remains the only Estonian to ever play in the National Basketball Association.
