ST. LOUIS (KMOX/AP) — A CBC High School alum is one of the newest members of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors.
The team traded for UNLV guard Patrick McCaw on Friday, shortly after Milwaukee drafted him.
The St. Louis born McCaw attended CBC until transferring to a Maryland high school as an upperclassman.
Golden State scouts liked the 20-year-old, who played two years at UNLV, for his versatility. The 6’7″ guard can play multiple positions and defend multiple positions.
Warriors general manager Bob Myers confirmed his team bought Milwaukee’s pick for around $2.4 million.
“Even if he becomes a rotational player, it’s a good deal,” Myers said. “He’s a play-making type kid.”
McCaw, who averaged 12.2 points and 3.3 assists with the Runnin’ Rebels, will participate in the summer league for the Warriors.
