He is currently working as a team assistant with the Pacers in a “all-hands on deck” capacity, according to the Des Moines Register. “I’ll play dummy defense, run the scout team, help coaches on film stuff, help on video projects if they need, scouting reports if they need,” he said. “Whatever you’re asked to do, be ready to do it.”

In January, McCaffery paid tribute to Clark on her 22nd birthday, which also happens to be her jersey number.

“Happy 22nd birthday.” I wish I could be there to celebrate with you; you deserve a wonderful day. “My Golden Birthday/Taylor Swift year will be the best yet,” he wrote.
