With the Markelle Fultz saga reaching soap opera levels and the team not having any other options as a backup point guard, the Sixers have stopped listening to trade overtures for T.J. McConnell.
The Sixers’ bench, including McConnell, has struggled recently outside of rookie Landry Shamet and General Manager Elton Brand will no doubt be scouring the trade and buyout market to help shape his bench. While the team might not value McConnell as a legitimate backup point, he will get the opportunity to run the team’s second unit for the foreseeable future. Even as a backup, McConnell hasn’t been getting the minutes to become fantasy relevant and he is still only an option in deeper leagues for owners looking to get some help with assists.
