The news is corroborated in a story posted on Marca, a Spanish national daily newspaper website.

McRae, a graduate of Liberty County High School and the University of Tennessee, earned an NBA championship ring with the Cavaliers in 2016.

McRae twice signed 10 day contracts with the Phoenix Suns. McRae later signed a 10 day contract with the Cavaliers which turned into a multi-year deal. The Cavaliers waived McRae in March.
