The Cleveland Cavaliers will sign guard Jordan McRae for the remainder of the season, league sources informed cleveland.com.
For a historically expensive team, the Cavaliers aren’t as deep as hoped.
Sasha Kaun hasn’t looked NBA-ready yet. More importantly, his teammates don’t seem to believe he’s NBA-ready. Mo Williams can’t seem to stay healthy.
The path for McRae – a versatile wing who could play a little point guard – making the active playoff roster is surprisingly clear. Once active, it’s a shorter step to postseason minutes.
Cleveland still has another open roster spot and could target a more-experienced player. But McRae has clearly impressed enough to earn a chance at a ring on this championship contender (non-Warriors division).
