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.

When that didn’t work — and it was probably bound not to, considering the next first-rounder Washington can trade is its 2028 selection — sources say the Nets asked for a player on a rookie contract who wasn’t Caleb Homesley or Anthony Gill.
