Mac McClung Rumors
15 Dec 20
Sam Vecenie: Other news there is Mac McClung pulled out of the NBA Draft. Smart move in my opinion. Has some interesting qualities with the athleticism and creativity, but really needs to take strides as a shooter and defender to make it at the next level.
McClung averaged 15.7 points for the Hoyas last season, but plantar fasciitis derailed his campaign. The foot injury limited McClung to eight minutes over the final 11 games. Georgetown (15-17) lost 10 of its final 13 games, including an opening-round loss in the Big East Tournament. The 6-foot-2 guard with an inconsistent 3-point shot (29.5 percent at Georgetown) remains a long shot to become one of 60 players selected in the two-round NBA Draft, according to league sources. The Athletic NBA Draft insider Sam Vecenie did not include McClung in his new top 100 draft big board.
With in-person visits sidelined because of the COVID-19 pandemic, teams can hold only video chats with prospects. Hazan said McClung had met with 11 teams as of Tuesday, with more scheduled. According to a source, those teams include the Rockets, the Bulls and the Nets. At least one team mentioned to McClung the potential of signing a two-way contract should he go undrafted. Such deals allow teams to freely use players in the NBA and G League.
