In addition to helping lead a Jr. NBA clinic alongside New York Knicks guard Jarrett Jack, McGruder worked at the event with Dallas Mavericks assistant coach Jamahl Mosley, Sacramento Kings assistant coach Bryan Gates, Portland Trail Blazers assistant David Vanterpool and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who is an adviser to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. The event was organized by TAPS.org — or Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. “I didn’t feel like I was a hero,” McGruder said of being cast as a featured participant. “The kids were heroes and the war veterans that I was honored to meet. Just to be at an event like that, it was breathtaking and I was so impressed to be invited.”
Jack revealed two playoff-contending teams offered to sign him at the March 1 waiver deadline that would have made him eligible for the playoffs. With playing time sketchy at those outposts, Jack decided he would rather be a tutor for Emmanuel Mudiay, who inherited his starting job, and rookie Frank Ntilikina. Is he happy at his decision? “I’m not miserable,’’ Jack told The Post. “There are things that are a lot worse. I remember when I was hurt, playing for nobody, sitting on the couch. I would’ve given anything to be in the uniform.”
Had there been more playing time assured, Jack likely would’ve asked for his release. The Knicks still have one point guard in their G-League of promise, Xavier Rathan-Mayes, who just completed a 10-day contract with Memphis and is back in Westchester. The kicks theoretically could still waive Jack and give Rathan-Mayes a 10-day audition despite being stacked with young point guards. “The situations that came my way, I could’ve went,” Jack said. “I definitely could’ve went to a couple of situations. As far as making sense personally, I didn’t see the benefit. Playoff teams are usually secure with their guards.”
