Spurs draft pick J-Mac signed with the team for all of 9 days, and managed the rare achievement of being waived before training camp even started. This happened because McClinton asked for it to; knowing he wasn't going to make the Spurs roster, and sensing that a Malik Hairston or Marcus Williams-like ferrying between the Spurs roster and the Austin Toros roster was probably not going to benefit him much, McClinton asked out of his deal to pursue other opportunities. The Spurs granted him that wish and McClinton instead went to camp with the Minnesota Timberwolves. However, he didn't make that roster either, losing out on a roster spot to Jason Hart.

McClinton then went to Turkey to play for Aliaga Petkim. In 25 games there he has averaged 16.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game, but has not shot well in doing so. McClinton is shooting 42% from two point range and 31% from three point range, which wouldn't be too bad if he didn't take 8 threes a game, more than he does two's. His 400 total points have come on 377 shots, which is not good, and while he's shooting 86% from the free throw line, he only gets there three times a game. McClinton's shooting hasn't been this bad all year, but after a 5-10 three point shooting performance on February 27th, he has since shot 11-47 from there, in only 6 games, while playing nearly every minute. Not a good month.
