Suns sign high-scoring D-League player McRae

PHOENIX (AP) The Phoenix Suns have signed high-scoring NBA Development League player Jordan McRae to a 10-day contract.

McRae set a D-League record by scoring 61 points for the Delaware 87ers in a 130-123 overtime victory over the Canton Charge on Tuesday night. He made 21 of 34 shots and 16 of 18 free throws.

The 6-foot-5 guard is third in the D-League in scoring at 23 points per game. A second-round draft pick by San Antonio in 2014 out of Tennessee, he was traded to Philadelphia on draft night. He played professionally in Australia in 2014-15 before joining Delaware for the final 13 games of that D-League season.

McRae was with the 76ers in the preseason but was waived by the team on Oct. 26.
