According to Liberty Ballers, Jordan McRae will play for the 76ers in the Las Vegas Summer League.
To be clear, he won't be playing in the Utah Jazz Summer League, but this is still very exciting. The 76ers didn't address their backcourt in the NBA Draft, so McRae could potentially carve out a role in Philly if he impresses this summer. He is not on the fantasy radar just yet, but owners who will be in deeper leagues should keep tabs on him. Anything can happen in Philly, just ask Robert Covington. Jun 27 - 9:24 AM

Jordan McRae said that playing for the 76ers next year would be a "great opportunity."

"I think it’s a great opportunity here," McRae said following a workout at the Sixers’ practice facility earlier this week. "They’re rebuilding and a lot of spots are open right now. I’m just trying to make the best of it." McRae spent the 2014-15 season playing overseas in Australia and with the 76ers D-League affiliate, and he feels he become a better defender and a more efficient scorer during that time. McRae will have an opportunity to prove his worth during Summer League, and with the 76ers roster looking the way it does, he certainly will have the opportunity for minutes if he earns a deal for the 2015-16 season. We'll track his progress closely this offseason.

Jordan McRae said he will play in summer league with the 76ers before the team makes a decision on him in September.

McRate spent the tail end of the 2014-15 season with the Sixers' D-League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers, and will get a chance to prove himself in summer league before the team makes a final decision on him. While McRae has upside and could latch on with the 76ers, he shouldn't be on standard league fantasy radars entering fall drafts.

Jordan McRae will join the 76ers' D-League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers.

The 87ers officially announced the acquisition of McRae on Thursday after he finished his season with Melbourne United in Australia's National Basketball League. McRae was selected by the Sixers with the 54th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and while his contract is with the 87ers, the Sixers own his exclusive NBA rights. While McRae may get some run with the Sixers this season, he can be left on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues for now.

Jordan McRae could join the 76ers this season according to coach Brett Brown.

"We are always paying attention to Jordan," Brown said on Tuesday. "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." Coach Brown said this prior to Tony Wroten suffering a sprained knee, so there seems to be a real possibility that we could see McRae in the NBA soon. For what it's worth, the 6-foot-6 shooting guard is averaging 20.9 points per game for Melbourne United in the Australian National Basketball League, so owners in deep leagues should monitor this situation closely.

Jordan McRae signed with the Melbourne United in Australia.

He was tremendous at Las Vegas Summer League, scoring 21 points per game, and he probably would have competed for playing time with the 76ers. With McRae out of the picture, second-round pick K.J McDaniels is even more attractive in fantasy leagues.

The Spurs drafted Tennessee SG Jordan McRae with 58th pick, but he was traded to the 76ers.

McRae is 23 years old, having played four seasons with Tennessee, and he averaged 18.5 points in 32 minutes per game as a senior. He's a versatile scorer but his 3-point range is shaky (34.3 percent from deep last season) and he'll need to add weight to his 179-pound frame. While he's unlikely to make any noise as a rookie, anything is possible on the Sixers' neophyte roster.
