McRae was waived by the 76ers on Monday, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. McRae, a second-round pick in 2014, spent the previous season overseas, but arrived at training camp this season determined to win a roster spot with the Sixers. Alas, he fell short in his quest after an unremarkable preseason, during which he shot a miserable 16-for-54 (29.6 percent) from the field. He'll likely head back to Europe or pursue an opportunity in the D-League.
The 76ers are keeping close tabs on guard Jordan McRae, who was selected in the second round (No. 58 overall) of the 2014 NBA draft. McRae is only one of two players in the Australian National Basketball League averaging at least 20 points per game, as he is averaging 20.9 points in 18 games for Melbourne United. "We are always paying attention to Jordan," coach Brett Brown said, per The Intelligencer. "He's in a good situation. He's playing a lot of minutes and continuing to score. Jordan is always in the back of our minds." The 76ers have talked about adding McRae to the roster later in the season. Although, the Sixers would lose a year of contract control, if they add McRae to the roster this season. "It's a fair question," Brown said. "How we decide to handle Jordan will be determined -- just not now. We have talked a lot about it."
