According to various reports, the Philadelphia 76ers are signing and waiving Mac McClung, Justin Smith and Patrick McCaw, all of whom are “expected” to join the Delaware Blue Coats for training camp. The Athletic’s Rich Hofmann first reported on Saturday that the Sixers were going to sign McClung to an Exhibit-10 contract. All of this has been confirmed to Liberty Ballers by a team source.
Not sure if this has been reported, but a Sixers source tells @RTRSPodcast that the team has signed three-time champion Patrick McCaw as well as Mac McClung (previously reported) & Justin Smith. All three will be waived and join the G-League Delaware Blue Coats for training camp.— Adam Aaronson (@SixersAdam) October 11, 2022
