IF SIXERS DON’T TRADE NO. 16 PICK, HOW ABOUT DUKE G JARED MCCAIN!

By Jimmy Traub

The 2024 NBA Draft is just 16 days away, and the Sixers may move their No. 16 pick inb the first round in favor of a win-now addition.

However, if they don’t, ESPN’s latest mock has them taking a chance on 6-4 Duke freshman Jared McCain.

“The level of spacing and versatility McCain provides on offense should be attractive to the Sixers,” ESPN’s Jeremy Woo wrote.

He started all 36 games of his run in the NCAA. The production stands out, as McCain produced 14 points per game, while shooting 46 percent from the field.

From deep, McCain hit on 41 percent of his shots. He also knocked down free throws at a high clip, averaging 89 percent from the charity stripe.

Along with his scoring, McCain dished out two assists per game. Defensively, he was responsible for five rebounds per game, along with a steal.

According to ESPN, McCain has been receiving interest in the lottery area of the upcoming draft, potentially leaving him out of the equation for Philadelphia if they do keep their pick. That suggests he could be viewed as a steal if he goes off the board in the late teens.
