McKinnie is starting Friday's preseason finale against the Lakers.
McKinnie gets the nod at small forward with Kevin Durant slated to get the night off. He'll take the court alongside Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Damian Jones. McKinnie isn't expected to make the final roster and figures to start the season with the Santa Cruz Warriors.
McKinnie had his two-way contract converted into a two-year, minimum deal on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Warriors organization liked what it saw from McKinnie during camp, giving him a spot on the final roster. In 56 preseason minutes, McKinnie totaled 26 points, 18 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.
McKinnie hasn't actually taken the court this preseason but apparently has done enough behind the scenes to turn his training-camp deal into something more long term. The 26-year-old should be expected to spend most of the upcoming season in the G League.
McKinnie, who went undrafted in 2015, spent time in overseas and in the G-League before making his NBA debut with the Raptors last season. In 53 total minutes, he posted 21 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block. He shot 8-of-15 from the field and 3-of-9 from three.
McKinnie contributed 14 points (5-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds and two steals across 33 minutes during the Raptors' 82-68 loss to the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.
The 25-year-old big man's scoring total co-led the first unit, allowing him to finish off his Las Vegas tenure in impressive fashion. McKinnie was serviceable in summer league play, but it remains to be seen if it was enough to garner him a training camp invite. If not, McKinnie could find himself back in the G-League, where he averaged 14.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 29.9 minutes over 35 games in the 2017-18 campaign.
