Patrick McCaw has had a relatively big following all through the Las Vegas Summer League — he’s a UNVL star playing on his home turf. The locals have his back.
Not that he’s needed it — the 6’7″ shooting guard has turned a few heads in Vegas with his strong play. Through five games he has averaged 15.8 points per game and shot 38.2 percent from three, he has been able to create his own shot, plus his length (6’10” wingspan) shows real potential on defense. More than one observer — both with teams and the media — expressed to me they were impressed with his play. He’s still got some developing to do, but he could become a quality rotation wing.
His show included another big game, dropping 28 on the Raptors Thursday.
Just what Golden State needs, another quality guard who can shoot the rock.
