These coaches didn't get the memo that he shoots too much.

Texas Tech transfer Mac McClung has heard from Kentucky, Gonzaga, Texas, Georgia, Memphis, NC State, Minnesota & Florida, per a source.

You forgot the memo where McClung isn’t going to be pursued by the coaching staff.

1. Let’s see where he ends up.
2. Let’s see what his roll is there.
3. Wanna bet he doesn’t lead UK/Gonzaga/Texas in scoring?

If McClung came here his minutes and PPG would most certainly drop and then his route to the league would be even harder. He needs to go to a team that lets him throw up massive volume.

Edit: not saying we shouldn’t take him, but he definitely should not want to split minutes like that unless he’s trying to win a title

He’s not a PG.

We don’t have a NEED for him.

Why is it so hard for you McClung lovers to understand that?
He has been told by the NBA he needs to play more #1 for his development. He has not been played at that position very much yet. I believe he has the skills to do it. McClung and whoever his next coach will be should make that a priority.

Maybe he does want that. Being on a title contending team and being a solid contributor even with reduced stats would raise his profile.

We would take him in a heart beat. That doesn't mean its a naturally good fit though. Barnes would rather have 7 guys average 10 points than 2 average 20 and the rest be scrubs. Mac would have to be ok will getting less shots per game and most likely starting the year off the bench.

I personally torn b/c he the most talented player from East TN currently playing (sorry Fulky) but why is he even considering leaving Texas Tech? He just left Georgetown!

Coach left at Texas Tech. If he came here he would start. However he may not get the minutes and shot attempts he has before but I bet he would be OK with that if UT was a contender.

1. He isn't technically from E. TN. He's from Gate City, VA.

2. We wouldn't take him in a heartbeat. In fact, we allegedly turned him away when he reached out, last year. I'm not sure what has changed in the time since then that makes him an instant take, now.

“Allegedly” ? Produce verifiable info or it’s not true. He was the leading scorer on a team that was better than UT last year.
