Sixers acquire guard Jordan McRae via deal with Spurs
The Sixers weren’t done wheeling and dealing after the 2014 NBA Draft had closed Thursday night.
The team acquired the rights to 58th overall pick Jordan McRae and the 60th overall pick, Cory Jefferson from the San Antonio Spurs. The Sixers then traded the rights to Jefferson to the Brooklyn Nets.
In exchange for the Spurs’ picks, the Sixers sent the 54th overall pick to the reigning NBA champions, which was Serbian forward Nemanja Dangubic.
In four seasons at the University of Tennessee, McRae average 13.3 points, including a career-best 18.7 his senior season. McRae’s productive senior year earned him multiple All-SEC honors.
