Within the final hours of the NBA trade deadline, the Washington Wizards trade Mcrae to the Nuggets in exchange for Shabazz Napier. However, McRae only played four games with the Nuggets before finally agreeing to a contract buyout.
In 29 games with the Wizards this season, McRae averaged a career-high 12.1 points, to go along with 3.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists. The 6’5″ swingman also shot 42 percent from behind the arc and 37.7 percent from three-point range.
Mcrae had a seven-game stint with the Suns back in the 2015-2016 campaign. He averaged 5.3 points and 1.4 dishes in 11.7 minutes. The 28-year-old is also in his contract year and will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Nonetheless, McRae will give the Suns more wing depth with Kelly Oubre sidelined. The Suns are currently the 13th seed in the Western Conference with a record of 24-37. They’re only five games behind the Memphis Grizzlies, who are the eighth seed.
