It’s been less than two weeks and Lue has shortened that list, taking McRae out of the equation — for now. “We’re going to slow it down a little bit. We’re going to slow it down,” Lue said when asked about McRae as a backup point guard option. “It’s not fair to him. It’s something he hasn’t done his whole career. You can put guys in position, they’ve got to come out and just score the basketball. But to tell them they’ve got to get into their sets, little guards picking up full court and just having to think so much when you’re a natural scorer, it is kind of tough.”
McRae worked all off-season for this. His teammates all see a different player — and not just because he packed on 10 pounds. “He’s just comfortable,” James said. “He walks in, he knows what he’s doing and he knows what the system is. When you first get here you don’t know what to expect. You don’t know the system so he’s deer in the headlights but now he knows just as much as anybody. “If Coach Lue called his number he will be ready.”
Cleveland was also considering Mario Chalmers, Douglas’ former teammate Norris Cole, and Kirk Hinrich. Because Douglas’ contract isn’t guaranteed, each remains an option while the Cavs wait to see if Douglas or any of the players they already had on the roster can handle the point. Those options include rookie Kay Felder as well as Jordan McRae and DeAndre Liggins.
