After Liberty Ballers reported back in August that Jordan McRae would be joining the Sixers for training camp, he officially signed his one-year tender today, according to Yahoo!'s Shams Charania.

Philadelphia had to offer the 24-year-old a tender by September 10th in order to retain his rights, which Derek Bodner reported they did.

McRae was the Sixers second round selection in 2014 (58th overall), and split time in Australia and the D-League during his first professional season. He joined the Sixers for both Las Vegas and Utah Summer League averaging 12.5 points on 29.5% shooting from the field.

The signing of McRae officially puts the team at the 20 man roster limit, but that number doesn't include Arsalan Kazemi, who was apparently offered a one-year tender as well. Assuming Kazemi signs, either Gerald Wallace or Carl Landry would be the most likely to be cut.

It's worth noting that if McRae doesn't make the team, he'll be a free agent and the Sixers will no longer hold his rights. Philadelphia already has Nik Stauskas and Hollis Thompson as locks to make the roster, and signed J.P. Tokoto to compete for a shooting guard position as well.

Training camp begins on September 29 at Stockton College.
