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.

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.

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.

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.
