PHI Point Guard: 6’2, 200 lbs; 3rd year, Arizona

NBA Role: pass-first PG • UnderDOG

TJ McConnell, a tough table setter undrafted outta Arizona, earned a roster spot during Summer League play (2015) and is now a valuable member of Brett Brown’s unit; TJ has a spot because his coach genuinely trusts him to play hard & create for teammates without making mistakes; not a huge scorer but likes lifting leaning jumpers & pushing the break on offense – good vision in the open court, throws solid lob passes to Philly’s athletic wings; good entry passer – can he help satisfy (& integrate) some of the new additions?; clutch perfomer; TJ battles, battles, battles on defense, though he doesn’t have elite foot speed; proud graduate of the prestigious, KHSOG (Kirk Hinrich School of Grit); never averaged more than 10.4 ppg at ‘Zona – still etched out an NBA spot
