5 things to know about new Wizards shooting guard Jordan McRae

Here are five things to know about Jordan McRae, the newest Wizards player.

The Washington Wizards have agreed to a two-way contract with shooting guard Jordan McRae. Here are five things to know about the newest Wizards player...

**McRae was a second round pick by the Spurs in 2014 and was traded to the Sixers on draft night, yet he never played for either team. He made his NBA debut in January of 2016 with the Phoenix Suns and played seven games for them before moving on to the Cavs. He appeared in 52 games for Cleveland across two seasons and won a championship with them in 2016.

**He was a standout at the University of Tennessee before going pro. McRae played four years for the Vols and was twice first-team All-SEC. He played alongside Clippers forward Tobias Harris and Heat guard Josh Richardson in college.

**McRae stands 6-foot-6 and can play both shooting guard and point guard. He measured a ridiculous wingspan of 7-feet and 1/2 inches at the 2014 NBA Combine.

**Though his NBA sample size isn't large, just 59 total games, McRae has flashed the ability to shoot from long range. He holds a 38.4 career three-point percentage.

**McRae will spend most of his time in the G-League, where he has thrived thus far in his career. In two seasons, he has averaged 21.8 points, 4.8 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.5 steals while shooting 45.8 percent from the field. He was a G-League All-Star for the 2015-16 season.
