Several news reports suggest that the Philadelphia 76ers have come to a contract agreement with Liberty County High School and University of Tennessee alumnus Jordan McRae.
News regarding his possible signing has been reported on NBC Sports, Fox Sports and philly.com.
McRae is rumored to be preparing for the 76ers training camp. He would not be eligible to attend training camp without a signed deal, but the team has given no official word indicating a deal has been set and signed.
A report on philly.com says a league source confirmed McRae will join the 76ers for camp beginning Sept. 29. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that
McRae, a second-round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, will be on the squad for the upcoming season. Second-round picks can show up to camp, forcing the franchise to make a decision of tendering an offer or lose their rights for that player. If that happened, McRae would become an unrestricted free agent.
According to philly.com, the Sixers have until Sept. 10 to make an offer to McRae.
McRae was the 58th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft by the San Antonio Spurs and was immediately traded to the 76ers.
Last year, McRae played for Melbourne United in Australia and returned stateside to play for the Delaware 87ers, Philadelphia’s affiliate in the NBA Development League.
