Former Liberty County basketball player Jordan McRae received a multi-year contract from Cleveland Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin Wednesday, according to a team news release.
McRae has played in three games for the Cavs this season and was signed to a 10-day contract on Feb. 28.
McRae (6-6, 185) was a 2016 NBA Development League All-Star this year, after appearing in 29 games (all starts) for the Delaware 87ers and averaging 23.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.7 steals in 35.5 minutes per game.
Against the Canton Charge on Jan. 26, he scored a D-League record 61 points on 21-34 (.618) shooting from the field, to go along with 11 rebounds and seven assists in 46 minutes. McRae also had two 10-day stints with the Phoenix Suns this season, playing in seven games with averages of 5.3 points and 1.4 assists in 11.7 minutes.
Originally selected as the 58th overall pick out of the University of Tennessee by the San Antonio Spurs in the 2014 NBA Draft and traded to the Philadelphia 76ers on draft night, McRae played pro ball in Australia in 2014-15 before joining Delaware for the season’s final 13 games.
