McConnell has agreed to a two-year, $7 million deal with the Pacers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. McConnell has been a reliable backup for the 76ers across the past four seasons, but he'll move on to Indiana. With Malcolm Brogdon presumably starting at point guard, McConnell will fight for reserve minutes alongside Aaron Holiday.
McConnell totaled 18 points (9-10 FG), six assists, two rebounds and a block across 23 minutes in the 76ers' win over the Bulls on Wednesday. McConnell produced a well-rounded line on Wednesday, drawing a spot start with the 76ers resting starters having already locked up the third seed in the Eastern Conference. It was a big night for McConnell but one that won't be replicated unless Ben Simmons is forced to miss time.
McConnell will start Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Paul Hudrick of NBCS Philadelphia reports. The Sixers are resting most of their key players, prompting McConnell to draw the start. In two previous starts this season, he's averaged 3.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 28.0 minutes.
McConnell finished with 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal in 17 minutes during Monday's 122-102 loss to the Mavericks. McConnell played just 17 minutes Monday but was able to put up numbers across the board in what was a nice outing for the backup point guard. A scoring night like this doesn't come around too often and in fact, this is the most he has scored in almost three months. If Ben Simmons were to ever miss extended time, McConnell would have value in 12-team formats but at this stage even streaming him in is difficult on most nights.
McConnel is starting Monday's game against Orlando, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Ben Simmons has been ruled out with a stomach bug, so McConnell will draw the start at point guard. He's entered the starting lineup only one other time this season, scoring five points over 27 minutes Jan. 26 against Denver.
