McNamara signed a two-year international rookie contract and was selected by the Collingwood Football Club in the 2009 AFL rookie draft at pick 47.
Collingwood discovered McNamara, who played four seasons of NCAA Division I collegiate basketball in the US for Marist College in New York before playing one season of professional basketball in Germany for TSV Dachau Spurs.
When Collingwood gave out their jumper numbers for the 2010 season, McNamara requested the recently vacated number 23 (formerly worn by Anthony Rocca). Instead, McNamara was given the number 50 after Collingwood wished to keep the number 23 vacant after Rocca's departure. McNamara later said his number 50 could represent the 50 states of the United States.
In September 2012, McNamara was cut from the Collingwood list after having played three NAB pre-season cup matches for the club. After being delisted from Collingwood McNamara returned to his original sport, signing on to play with the Sandringham Sabres in the South East Australian Basketball League. In 2012, McNamara was delisted from the Sandringham Sabres.
