Sixers To Bring 3-Time NBA Champion Into The Organization

The Philadelphia 76ers are bringing some championship pedigree into the organization. Sort of. Former Toronto Raptor and Golden State Warrior Patrick McCaw has three NBA title rings to show for his five seasons in the NBA. Not exactly a prime contributor to any of them, but three rings nonetheless. 

McCaw has been signed-and-waived by the Sixers, with the intention of bringing him into their G League affiliate to start the season. McCaw will join Mac McClung on the Delaware Blue Coats, who was also signed-and-waived for the same purpose this past weekend. 

The 26-year-old McCaw has averaged 3.8 points in a very tepid NBA career, playing an average of 16 minutes per game across five seasons, most recently 2020. 

It's true that he played on three straight championship teams (Golden State twice and then Toronto), though his contributions were very minimal, at 2.2 points per game in limited playoff action. 

After being cut by the Raptors early in the 2020-21 season, the swingman spent last year in the G League, where his production remained pretty nominal, at 6 points per game and 3.6 rebounds in 25 minutes per contest. 

With the Raptors, McCaw was known more for his tendency to play scared on offense, be blown around on defense, and do things like checking into the game with his headphones still on

But the Sixers are giving him another shot in the G League, and he'll see if he can regain some of the skills that made him the 38th overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft.
