T.J. McConnell
PG, 6’2, 200lbs, 25 years old, 2 years of experience

Getting it done as a ‘traditional’ point guard, with a 37.4% career assist percentage, a 3.3:1 assist/turnover ratio and an immeasurable amount of hustle. A 0.0 VORP in a minimum salary backup is a pretty good result. McConnell’s slight lack of size and speed, plus his more significant individual offensive deficiencies, make him a fairly marginal talent. But in playing hard and knowing what to do with it, McConnell has carved himself out a place in an NBA rotation, and, potentially, even some trade value. He shouldn’t be a starter, but he isn’t going to a deep bench role, either.

Player Plan: Two years of minimum salary remaining, the second year of which is a team option. As was just the case with Covington, declining it would mean restricted free agency; exercising it would mean unrestricted. No reason to get cute, though. Exercise and have the decent backup for the cheapest possible price.
