McRae averaged 24.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists across seven Las Vegas Summer League games en route to First Team All-Summer League honors.
McRae led all players who participated in at least three games in scoring, though he shot just 37.6 percent from the floor and 29.4 percent from three. The former Tennessee standout held only a minor role for the reigning champions during the NBA season, but the loss of Matthew Dellavedova could mean a slight increase in minutes off the bench next season.
McRae signed a 10-day contract with the Cavaliers in February, and was able to earn a two-year deal after shining in practice and impressing team brass with his performance during his limited minutes in games. The 25-year-old rewarded the Cavs' investment in him with a 36-point performance in the regular season finale against the Pistons, when both teams were resting nearly all of their rotation players in advance of their first-round playoff matchup. McRae would go on to make just two appearances in the postseason during the Cavs' run to the title, but he'll have a more legitimate chance at seeing playing time in 2016-17 as he prepares for his first training camp with the organization.
McRae (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's 112-97 Game 5 win over the Warriors.
McRae has only played in two of the Cavs' 17 postseason games, with both of his appearances coming in garbage time. With the team back to full health following Kevin Love's return from a concussion in Game 4, McRae figures to remain inactive for the rest of the series.
Jordan McRae (coach's decision) was inactive for Sunday's 100-99 Game 4 win over the Hawks.
McRae was the star of the Cavs' ultimately meaningless regular season finale back on April 13, scoring a career-high 36 points in 47 minutes. The large workload was a result of the Cavs resting most of their regular rotation members for the playoffs, so it's come as little surprise that McRae's role has evaporated entirely since then. He's appeared in only one of the team's eight playoff games, logging one minute of court time.
DFS players who selected McRae for their lineups hit pay dirt, as the Cavs' offense ran through the 25-year-old, who in addition to his huge scoring total, hit a clutch trey to send the game to overtime. With coach Tyronn Lue resting LeBron James, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, and Mo Williams, McRae was able to showcase his offensive capabilities. McRae, who scored 61 points in a D-League game earlier this season, impressed the Cavs enough prior to Wednesday's scoring outburst to earn himself a multi-year contract, which puts him on solid ground for a roster spot heading into 2016-17. However, he'll likely remain mostly a non-factor off the bench for the Cavs during their upcoming playoff run, as Lue figures to lean heavily on his more established players.
