UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: PASS-FIRST PG

 

TJ McConnell, a tough table setter undrafted outta Arizona, is a vital playmaker & defender off the bench: creates for teammates without making mistakes; not a huge scorer but likes lifting leaning jumpers (from midrange) & pushing the break on offense – good vision in the open court, throws lob passes to athletic wings, hits shooters in the pocket; capable entry passer & screen setter – leverages himself to create easy opportunities for teammates; clutch performer; needs to improve long range shooting; digs in & battles on defense, though he doesn’t have elite speed; gritty, earned a roster spot in 2015 Summer League* (w/ PHI); signed w/ Pacers: adds value to Nate McMillan’s backcourt

*never averaged more than 10.4 ppg at ‘Zona – still etched out an NBA spot
