The timing couldn’t be better for Georgetown sophomore guard Mac McClung to go pro.
With the current NBA season in coronavirus flux, McClung (the Hoya in the4 middle above) may be just what a lot of teams need for 2020-21.
He says he is declaring for the NBA draft but will maintain his eligibility so he can return to college.
The 6-2 McClung attracted an online following for his high-flying dunks while he was in high school in Virginia.
He averaged 15.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists this season but missed time because of a right foot injury and appeared in only 21 of Georgetown’s 32 games. McClung’s last game was Feb. 19 against Providence. He played only eight minutes and missed all three of his field-goal attempts.
