McGruder has agreed to a three-year, $15 million contract with the Clippers, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
McGruder was waived by the Heat last season after appearing in 66 games, and he was then picked up by the Clippers. The Clippers opted to retain his rights, and the front office has worked out a deal with McGruder. He started 45 games last year, averaging 7.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 23.5 minutes. He should continue his role as a low-usage depth option.
McGruder was extended a qualifying offer by the Clippers on Friday, making him a restricted free agent, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
McGruder was claimed off of waivers by the Clippers in early April, and he never played a game for the team. He did appear in 66 games for the Heat, however, starting 45 contests. McGruder has shown the ability to be a rotation player, though his upside might be capped considering he's about to turn 28 years old and is a low-volume player.

McGruder was waived by the Heat on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Despite turning in the best season of his career statistically (7.7 ppg, 3.6 rpg over 65 contests), Miami will release McGruder prior to the final two games of the regular season. He won't be eligible to be picked up by another team for the playoffs, as he was cut after the Mar. 1 deadline. Nonetheless, the Heat are hoping he'll be claimed, as that would move the organization under the luxury tax.

It'll be the sixth straight contest in which McGruder will be absent for, as the Kansas State alum continues to experience soreness in his left knee. With Josh Richardson (heel) listed as questionable Thursday, Derrick Jones is a candidate to see a bulk of the minutes at the small-forward position for the Heat on Thursday. McGruder's next chance at a return will be Saturday at New York.
McGruder (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Orlando, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

McGruder (knee) did not take part in Monday's practice, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

McGruder (knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Wizards, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
It'll be the fourth straight absence for McGruder, who will join Justise Winslow in street clothes once again Saturday. Expect James Johnson, Derrick Jones and Dwyane Wade to pick up some increased run in the pair's continued absence.

McGruder will not be available Monday against the Thunder due to a sore left knee, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
This may explain why McGruder was limited to only three minutes in Sunday's win over Charlotte, though his playing time had already been on the decline over the last week. Regardless, Miami won't have the Kansas State product Monday, and the Heat will also be without Justise Winslow (thigh).
McGruder finished with 17 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 27 minutes in the Heat's win over the Nets on Saturday.
McGruder got some extra playing time with the game essentially out of reach for the Heat fairly early. His 17 points were the most he's scored since Nov.10, and McGruder is nothing more than a role player on a team that doesn't usually score at a high clip. Barring injuries or more positive gameflow, McGruder isn't a recommended fantasy option in most formats.

McGruder (knee) took part in Tuesday's practice, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
