During the NBA Summer League, McClung played for the Warriors and put up 13.4 points and 4.8 assists a game.
Like most players in the SL, McClung was hoping to land an actual NBA contract because of his hard work.
And, sure enough, he just got one.

Shams Charania is reporting that McClung agreed to a one-year deal with the Warriors.
The deal will be a standard, non-guaranteed deal that allows him to make the Warriors’ roster after training camp.
McClung still has a lot to prove but he’s on his way to having the sort of NBA career he’s been fighting for.
McClung Moving Up
McClung’s deal is pretty much just an invitation to training camp.
If the Warriors aren’t blown away by him, they can waive the young player; but if they enjoy his hard work, they can bring him into the regular season with the rest of the team.
So that means that McClung still needs to keep playing his heart out – but he should have no problem with that.
This is technically his second year in the league although you probably haven’t seen him much.
He has had brief stints with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers but didn’t make enough of an impression to stick around.
He got his start back in high school and became a YouTube sensation because of his lightning-fast moves and superior offensive skills.
Now the young man is in his best position yet and the future is looking brighter than ever.
The regular season starts in a few months and there is a chance McClung will be a part of it.
