Just when you thought the Philadelphia 76ers were done, they flipped Nemanja Dangubic (pick No. 54) shortly after midnight to the San Antonio Spurs for the 58th pick (Tennessee SG Jordan McRae) as well as the 60th and final pick in the draft (Baylor PF Cory Jefferson, who was later dealt to the Brooklyn Nets).
#Sixers deal Dangubic to the Spurs (54th) for Tennessee SG Jordan McRae (58th) & Baylor PF Cory Jefferson (60th).— Jason Wolf (@JasonChadWolf) June 27, 2014
McRae was the 70th-ranked prospect on the Draft Express Big Board, but ESPN's Chad Ford had the 6'5" shooting guard slotted at the 47th-best player in the 2014 draft class. Regardless of where experts had him projected, McRae is a 23-year-old rookie who is 179 pounds soaking wet. Sure... he's a competent scorer (18.8 PPG last season for the Volunteers), but he won't necessarily wow you with any particular skill. He's a low risk, moderate reward player who'll get a long look during Summer League as well as training camp - don't expect too much more than that.
Take a deep breath - the night is finally over. We think.
