The 76ers apparently are not ready to part ways with Jordan McRae and J.P. Tokoto. A league source confirmed that McRae will join the Sixers for training camp, which begins Sept. 29 at Stockton University in Galloway Township, N.J. Another league source said Tokoto will participate in camp as well. But would that be the case if the two second-round picks hadn’t pushed to attend the camp? Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie could not be reached for comment.

Second-rounders can show up to training camp and force the franchise that picked them to make a decision: Tender an offer or lose their draft rights and see them become unrestricted free agents. The Sixers have until Sept. 5 to tender an offer Tokoto, the 58th pick in the draft. They have until Sept. 10 to do the same with McRae, whom the Sixers acquired in a second-round trade in the 2014 draft. The Sixers can tender offers as early as two weeks before the deadlines. From that point, Tokoto and McRae can begin negotiating contracts with the Sixers. Don’t be shocked if they decide to gamble on themselves the way former Sixer K.J. McDaniels did last season. McDaniels, who was drafted 32d overall last summer, signed a one-year, non-guaranteed minimum deal during the first day of training camp. The move enabled McDaniels to become a restricted free agent after the season.

Jordan McRae was asked Friday where he expects to play in the fall. The swingman knows the 76ers could stash him overseas for the second consecutive season. They could also put him on their 15-man NBA roster. “I would say I would be here,” McRae said after the Sixers’ morning minicamp session for the summer league. “Me just being here with the guys in the summer, and the relationships with the coaches and players and stuff, I think it will help me out a lot.”
