NBA Trade Rumors: McRae Adds Dynamic to Dubs’ Style of Play
Another feasible free agent that the Warriors can pursue is Shooting Guard, Jordan McRae.
Jordan McRae is a former NBA Champion with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He possesses a natural scoring ability that highlights his offensive game. Despite only having played 37 games last season with three different teams, Jordan McRae still averaged 11.5 points, 2.5 assists, and 3.4 rebounds. He was 40.7% from the field, with 35.7% from the 3-point range.
This makes McRae a valid option for the Warriors if they want to ease Steph Curry some of the offensive load. And we all know that Steph needs all the help that he can get.
McRae’s 3-and-D Gives Warriors Wing Depth
McRae’s above-average ability to hit threes will be an important factor for the Dubs. Their signature trademark offense involves making it rain from the three-point line. It’s no question that McRae can provide an offensive punch together with Stephen Curry, Kelly Oubre, and Andrew Wiggins on the floor. Given the Warriors offensive structure, McRae can certainly fit in easily with Steve Kerr’s style of offense and give a boost off the bench when the Warriors need to.
Another skill that the Warriors can benefit from McRae is his defense. He has great length and wingspan for his position. This skill allows him to get enough reach to contest shots and even disrupt passing lanes that result into pass interceptions.
