Jordan McRae will make the final roster for the Cavaliers according to
The report adds that Mcrae has been generating trade interest around the league, so it's possible the Cavs could move him. He's been a beast in the preseason, averaging 15.4 points with 4.0 assists and 1.0 steal through five games. The Cavs just re-signed J.R. Smith, so McRae likely won't have much fantasy value unless he leapfrogs Iman Shumpert in the rotation. Oct 16 - 10:00 AM

Jordan McRae scored 19 points with two rebounds, five assists, three steals and two turnovers against the Bulls on Friday.

It was a fantastic game for McRae, but he lost a lot of fantasy value today with J.R. Smith agreeing to a deal. McRae is fully expected to make the team and he could have some sneaky garbage time numbers when the Cavs are up big.
Oct 14 - 10:23 PM

Jordan McRae made 1-of-14 from the field and 10-of-14 from the line for 12 points with three rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks and six turnovers on Monday.

Yeah, missing 13 shots from the field and turning it over six times isn't good. McRae is looking more and more likely to get minutes this season, but a lot of it has to do with J.R. Smith signing. For what it's worth, Smith has been hanging out with the Cavs a lot, including at the Indians game last week.
Oct 10 - 10:55 PM

Jordan McRae scored 20 points with five rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes on Saturday.

The Orange Mamba having a big October is one of the least surprising stories so far. On the other hand, his defense looks a lot better and he might be trusted as a backup guard. At worst, this could be leverage for the Cavs on getting a J.R. Smith deal done.

Cavs GM David Griffin said that he thinks of Jordan McRae as a player similar to a Jamal Crawford type.

"He finds a way to get the ball in the basket. He shoots threes but he's not a 40 percent 3-point shooter," Griffin said. "He can finish at the rim but is not an incredible athlete. He's snake-like. I think he's similar to Jamal in all those ways." The Cavs have been experimenting with McRae at PG as well, and he made a strong case for playing time when he put up 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting with seven boards, five assists and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes vs. the Magic on Wednesday. Scoring has never been an issue for McRae and it will be interesting to see if he can keep it going.

Jordan McRae helped the Cavs light up the Magic on Wednesday, scoring a game-high 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting with seven boards, five assists and a pair of 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

McRae's salary won't be guaranteed until Jan. 10, but performances like certainly help his cause. He might carve out a role as a bench scorer situational perimeter specialist, having shot a combined 10-of-22 from deep in his brief career, but fantasy owners can ignore him until further notice.
Oct 5 - 9:32 PM

Jordan McRae scored 25 points with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers against the Nets during a Saturday win.

He scored more total points than any other player in Las Vegas Summer League, headlined by his 36-point game on Thursday and 32-pointer on Wednesday. McRae was a scoring machine in the D-League, but he's not going to have a noteworthy role with the Cavs next season.
Jul 17 - 12:15 AM

Jordan McRae put on a show for the Cavs on Wednesday, scoring a game-high 32 points on 9-of-21 FGs and 12-of-12 FTs.

McRae hit two 3-pointers while adding three rebounds, two assists, one block and just one turnover in 33 minutes, and the Cavs' offense began and ended with him for most of the game. Cleveland picked up their team option on McRae for $874k, giving them some affordable depth on the wings, but we're unlikely to see much of him during the regular season.
Jul 13 - 10:15 PM

Jordan McRae made 3-of-15 from the field and 16-of-17 from the line for 23 points on Friday, adding four rebounds, four assists, one steal, five turnovers and one 3-pointer.

He scored 61 in a D-League game, so scoring won't be an issue for McRae at Summer League. He is 25 and has only played 22 games in his career with an 8.9 minutes-per-game average. The Suns looked like they were going to give him a shot last year, but he couldn't keep it going. He'll have to be awesome to get into an NBA rotation.
Jul 8 - 8:12 PM

The Cavaliers have exercised their team option on G Jordan McRae.

McRae's contract is not fully guaranteed, but he will now be on the books for $874K for the 2016-17 season. The 26-year-old posted a 36-point scoring effort towards the end of 2015-16, but isn't much of a fantasy option buried on Cleveland's bench.
Jun 28 - 1:39 PM

Jordan McRae erupted for 36 points in his first NBA start on Wednesday, connecting on 14-of-29 field goals with seven assists, four rebounds and three 3-pointers.

McRae battled some cramping in 47 minutes of action, and his scoring deluge single-handedly kept a skeletal Cavs lineup in this game until the final buzzer. He came in shooting 7-of-17 from downtown in just 21 appearances for Phoenix and Cleveland this season, and tonight's game gives the Cavs something to think about when deciding on his $874k team option.
Apr 13 - 11:49 PM

Matthew Dellavedova, Jordan McRae, Richard Jefferson, Channing Frye and Tristan Thompson will start against the Pistons on Wednesday.

This will likely be McRae's best chance this season, including his time with the Suns. He'll still be a very risky play tonight in DFS.
Apr 13 - 7:39 PM

Cavs recall G Jordan McRae.

There is a chance he plays with Mo Williams (knee) and Iman Shumpert (knee) out for tonight. McRae is not a reliable fantasy option, though.
Apr 11 - 5:01 PM

Cavs assign G Jordan McRae to the D-League.

The Canton Charge are in the postseason, so McRae and Sasha Kaun are being sent out in order to provide some extra help.
Apr 11 - 11:53 AM

Jordan McRae has signed a multi-year contract with the Cavs.

Cavs' GM David Griffin likes him, but McRae isn't a major part of the rotation in Cleveland. Leave him on the wire.
