CJ McCollum joined ESPN as an NBA analyst and will make his debut during an alternate telecast of Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.
McCollum, who has previously appeared as an analyst for ESPN, graduated from Lehigh University with a degree in journalism.
“I am excited to bring what I feel is my unique perspective, based on my vast knowledge of the game that I’ve gained during my nine years as a player in the NBA,” said McCollum. “To have an opportunity to put my journalism background to use on the largest stage with the many talented professionals at ESPN is a dream come true.”
McCollum will also develop a podcast with ESPN, in addition to working as an analyst for the NBA Summer League.
