Pacers announce signing of point guard McConnell

Reserve point guard T.J. McConnell spent each of his first four NBA seasons with the 76ers.

The Indiana Pacers have officially signed point guard T.J. McConnell, the team announced in a news release.

According to Adrian Wojanrowski of ESPN, McConnell’s deal is for two years and $7 million.

McConnell, 27, spent his first four seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers.

He will join a backcourt that will now include Malcolm Brogdon (Milwaukee Bucks) and Jeremy Lamb(Charlotte Hornets), as well as holdover Victor Oladipo, an All-Star who may not return until January after suffering a torn ACL this past season.

The Pacers lost point guards Cory Joseph (Sacramento Kings) and Darren Collison (retirement), but also return second-year man Aaron Holiday.

McConnell averaged 6.4 points and 3.4 assists in 76 games as a reserve last season with the 76ers. He has never played less than 76 games in his four-year career, and twice played 81.
