He had a rough season, but McCants had no problem finding suitors around the league. With a bevy of options, he headed to Miami and worked out for the Heat. It was here he would face yet another bump in the road. “I was in Miami working out for the Heat and I injured my abdominal, which I had hurt and had been misdiagnosed while playing in Minnesota. Even with that, Pat Riley wanted to sign me but they didn’t have enough room under the luxury tax.”
“Cleveland insisted that I went to play in the Summer League or they would pull their offer,” he said. “I told them that I would be tending to my mother who was undergoing treatment for breast cancer and it seemed to be good, but in that offseason they were in limbo with LeBron leaving and not having a head coach.” It was this level of confusion that extinguished the chance of McCants playing in the NBA. “Byron Scott was eventually hired and he didn’t really know what was going on with my situation, so the media took the story that I didn’t show up to camp and ran with it and it ended up blowing my chance,” he said. “Hearing that story was really tough to listen to considering what I was actually going through.”
With the 13th pick, the LG Sakers, fresh off their failed experiment with Davon Jefferson, drafted Bouldin. As he was making his way to sign his contract, the Goyang Orions selected Jackson at No. 14. Jackson, who grew up in a tough part of Memphis, said it was a life-changing moment. He suddenly had a six-figure deal. “I don’t know if you can understand where I came from,” he said. “I’m just thankful right now.” As the proceedings came to a close, most of the players, including McCants and Parker, had gone undrafted. Parker remained seated for several minutes before he retrieved his maroon suitcase at the back of the room. He was headed home to Brooklyn.
