The 25-year-old Connaughton, a Notre Dame product, averaged 5.4 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.1 assist, playing in all 82 regular-season games for Portland.
Connaughton shot 42.3 percent from the field and 35.2 percent from beyond the 3-point line.
Connaughton’s QO would have been for $1.8 million. The Blazers also did not offer a QO to point guard Shabazz Napier, who would have commanded a $3.45 million offer.
