The Maine Red Claws sent the returning player rights for forward Anthony Bennett, the first selection in the 2013 NBA draft, to the Agua Caliente Clippers on Thursday for the rights to James McAdoo and a third-round pick in next weekend’s G League draft.

McAdoo, 25, is a second cousin of Hall of Famer Bob McAdoo. Both played at the University of North Carolina. A 6-foot-9 power forward, James McAdoo won two NBA titles with the Golden State Warriors and signed a two-way contract last season with the Philadelphia 76ers, spending much of the season in the G League with the Delaware 87ers. He is under contract with a top-division team in Italy for the 2018-19 season.
