He currently sits in 4th place on the career ACC 3-point field goal percentage (41.5%), and 5th place in points per game (17.6).

He was picked by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 1st round (14th pick overall) in the 2005 NBA Draft and played for the T-Wolves for three full seasons and part of a fourth, before being traded to the Sacramento Kings in 2009. The Kings released him in Jan., 2011. During his run in the NBA he averaged 10.0 points per game with a high of 14.9ppg during the 2007-08 season with Minnesota. That season he played in 75 games, starting 24, scoring 1,114 points on the season. He was averaging 10.3 points per game on 19.4 minutes off the bench for Sacramento when they released him. McCants earned an estimated $7.58m over his NBA career.

    He can run around the court during the game and the fans will be happy like they are when TMac is talking to them – they don’t need him play.

      Doesn’t matter much.. You can get through the 3 weekly practices in China on one leg.
