The Philadelphia 76ers signed first-round draft pick Jared McCain on Thursday, with the former Duke guard set to participate in summer leagues in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas this month.

McCain was selected with the No. 16 overall pick in last month's draft after he averaged 14.3 points with 5.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 36 games (all starts) in his lone season at Duke. McCain attended Centennial High School in Corona, Calif., just east of Los Angeles.

McCain's three games of at least 30 points were the most by a freshman last season. He was a 2023 McDonald's All-American and helped USA Basketball to a gold medal in the 2022 U18 Americas Championship.
