Across both leagues, the Kansas State product averaged 11.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.9 assists while shooting 49.5 percent from the floor and 49.4 percent from three. His outside shooting ability and defensive tenacity are what particularly piqued the Heat's interest, so much so that the team inked McGruder to a three-year, partially guaranteed deal on July 7. The expectation is that McGruder will be on the roster next season, though he'll still have to earn his way onto the team in camp.
After graduating from Kansas State following the 2012-13 season, McGruder spent a year overseas in Hungary, before joining the NBA D-League the past two seasons. In his 2015-16 campaign with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, he played in 48 games, posting averages of 15.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals over 37 minutes per game. He also shot a solid 51 percent from the field and 38 percent from beyond the arc. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard should provide depth behind Josh Richardson at shooting guard, but he'll still have to make the final roster following training camp considering he's only on a partially guaranteed deal.
