McRae focused on becoming stronger and putting on weight in Australia. He went from 180 pounds 11 months ago to his current 195 by “lifting hard every day.” The plan is for McRae to continue working out and playing pickup games with the Sixers’ players and then for him to join the team’s summer league entry at the Rocky Mountain Revue in Utah and/or NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, and see what happens from there. “I can bring energy, defense, effort and things like that,” McRae said.
The Delaware 87ers have officially announced the acquisition of Jordan McRae. McRae, drafted by the 76ers with the 58th selection in the 2014 NBA draft, just finished up a year with Melbourne United in Australia’s National Basketball League. McRae, the NBL’s second-leading scorer, averaged 19.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game. The contract McRae signed is with the D-League itself, not with the 76ers. Because McRae was drafted by the 76ers, the Sevens, who are the D-League affiliate of the 76ers, held McRae’s rights if he were to sign a contract with the D-League.

Jordan McRae is putting up some impressive numbers in Australia. McRae, the No. 58 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft whose rights the Sixers acquired from the Spurs, is averaging 20.9 points in 18 games for Melbourne United, making him one of only two players in the Australian National Basketball League averaging at least 20 ppg. Sixers coach Brett Brown used to coach that Australian team, so he’s keeping an especially close eye on the slender 6-foot-6 shooting guard. “We are always paying attention to Jordan,” Brown said prior to Tuesday night’s game against the Hawks at the Wells Fargo Center. “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.”
