Personal Bio

Jordan McLaughlin was born in Pasadena, California in 1996. The son of Thomas and Lisa McLaughlin, Jordan has three sisters. He emerged as a star in his junior year at Etiwanda High School in Rancho Cucamonga, California, averaging 15.6 points per game to help the Eagles to a 28-3 record. McLaughlin took his game to another level as a senior, averaging 17 points and 8.0 assists per game as Etiwanda went 27-5 and advanced to the CIF Southern Section Quarterfinals. In recognition of his achievements that season, McLaughlin was named the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin Player of the Year, San Bernardino Sun Player of the Year, Southern Section All-Open Division Team, Los Angeles Times All-Area Team and the Baseline League MVP. Even more impressively, he accomplished all that while sporting a GPA of 3.5 or higher throughout high school. McLaughlin chose to attend the University of Southern California, where he spent four years, majoring in sociology with a minor in communications.

College/International Summary

McLaughlin spent four years (2014-2018) at the University of Southern California, finishing near the top of the Pac-12 in assists per game in every season of his collegiate career. As a freshman, McLaughlin started 21 of the 22 games he played in, averaging 12.1 points and 4.5 assists per contest -- those numbers gave him a spot on the Pac-12 All-Freshman team. As a sophomore, McLaughlin started 34 games, averaging 13.4 points and 4.7 assists en route to garnering a Pac-12 All-Conference Honorable Mention. McLaughlin continued putting up consistent numbers in the 2016-17 season, averaging 12.9 points and 5.5 assists per game as a junior while picking up a second Pac-12 All-Conference Honorable Mention. J-Mac's senior season was his best. Starting the year on the Wooden Award preseason list, McLaughlin averaged 12.8 points, 7.8 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game. In recognition of his efforts, McLaughlin was named to the Pac-12 All-Conference Team and became the Pac-12 Conference All-Defensive Award winner. By the time McLaughlin graduated from USC in 2018, he'd played in 128 games, starting all but one and compiling 1,648 career points and 213 career steals. He went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft but signed with the Brooklyn Nets to participate in that year's NBA Summer League.

Nears double-double in loss
GIowa Wolves   G League (Timberwolves)
March 6, 2020
McLaughlin produced 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), nine assists, three rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes during Friday's 132-118 loss to Orlando.
McLaughlin continues to impress, falling just one assist short of another double-double. The playing time was elevated due to the fact D'Angelo Russell couldn't hit the side of a barn; however, McLaughlin has certainly been making a name for himself of late. He has been a fringe top1-00 player over the past two weeks in only 22 minutes a night. It is hard to predict exactly what may lie ahead for McLaughlin but given the current production, he certainly warrants a roster spot in deeper formats.
