MONDAY, 12:04pm: The signing is official, the team announced.
SUNDAY, 5:08pm: The Suns will sign Jordan McRae to a second 10-day contract, according to Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders (Twitter link). The shooting guard’s original 10-day deal is set to expire today. The Suns play Monday and Wednesday before the break.
The Suns have been decimated by injuries and combo guard Brandon Knight is expected to be out through the All-Star break. McRae has played decently for the Suns, appearing in five games. He scored 12 points against the Knicks in his season debut on January 29th. He is averaging 5.8 points per game.
McRae, 24, played for Philadelphia’s D-League affiliate late last season after spending the first part of 2014/15 playing overseas in Australia. In September, he signed the required tender of a one-year, non-guaranteed, minimum-salary deal that Philadelphia had to offer to retain his draft rights. The Sixers waived him during the preseason this year after he averaged 7.1 points over seven appearances.
