Clippers agree with Rodney McGruder on 3-year $15M deal, per report

first_imgMcGruder, 27, averaged 7.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 23.5 minutes in 66 games for the Heat last season before Miami waived him so they could fall below the luxury tax and save about $5 million, according to reports.In 2016, the native of Landover, Maryland, earned the Heat’s final roster spot and ended a three-year journey that included a season in the Hungarian A League and then two more in the NBA’s development league with the Maine Red Claws and Sioux Falls Skyforce, whom he helped guide to the D-League championship. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Rodney McGruder’s journey has led him to L.A., where the restricted free agent will be a Clipper, after reaching an agreement to sign a three-year, $15 million deal, per Yahoo’s Chris Haynes.The Clippers claimed McGruder, a 6-foot-4 guard, off waivers last April after he was waived by the Miami Heat, picking him up even though it was well past March 1, the last day a player can be waived by one team and remain postseason eligible for another team, leaving McGruder off the Clippers’ postseason roster.Nonetheless, he was with the team during the playoffs, traveling to Oakland for their first-round series with the Golden State Warriors.By claiming him, the Clippers attained his early Bird rights (which will allow them to exceed the salary cap). The signing won’t affect the Clippers’ ability to sign a player – Kawhi Leonard, for example – to a max contract, as McGruder’s $3 million free agent hold already was factored into the available max slot. “You love his perseverance, his fortitude, the grit,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said of McGruder in a 2016 Miami Herald story. “These things you can’t teach, you have to go through life experiences to develop it. The way he came through is almost textbook in how you would want to develop a player – go overseas, learn how to handle more responsibilities and then start the process of training camp and summer league. Then, play a season and a half with our D-League team under our staff and really develop there and then finish off with another summer league, a full summer of development, a training camp, all the way to the 11th hour.“And he just pushed through and persevered and worked on just getting better as a basketball player. You really root for guys like that. By the end of it, he really felt like a veteran Miami Heat player through all those experiences. But a lot of guys don’t have the type of makeup to be able to go through all those experiences without getting discouraged.”McGruder also played four seasons at Kansas State, where he averaged of 11.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists.Related Articles Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters center_img What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 He’s also been cut twice by NBA teams in training camp (in 2013 by the Oklahoma City Thunder and in 2014 by the Boston Celtics).The Heat reportedly appreciated his perseverance and positive outlook, as will the Clippers, by all indications.Patrick Beverley, who has shown remarkable resilience himself in his career, took to Twitter to cheer the signing: “Yesssirrr.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
