T.J. McConnell overcame a rough start to his season, but he has not proven that he can have long potential for the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Philadelphia 76ers have had plenty of positives in this season of growth. Joel Embiid and Dario Saric are developing into a nice frontcourt duo. The trade that brought in Ersan Ilyasova produced in a major way. Nerlens Noel has accepted the backup position and thrived in it. On top of that, the team had a great month in January.
That said, one thing people are slowly starting to realize now is that point guard T.J. McConnell is a quality starter. This good season will help mold and shape his long term potential with the Sixers. With questions about the point guard situation still open for the franchise, McConnell might be the answer that has been staring the Sixers in the face.
At first glance the comparisons from last season’s to this season’s stats are not eye opening, however, that does not mean the door is completely closed on his potential either.
