Sixers' T.J. McConnell Gets Married as Nik Stauskas Plays Groomsman

Congratulations to T. J. McConnell and his wife, Valerie Guiliani!

Last night, at a ceremony in Pittsburgh, McConnell wed his high school sweetheart and, his Sixers teammate Nik Stauskas posted one of the first photos of the newlyweds on his Instagram with a special message.

In June, we caught up with the couple and Valerie shared that the wedding was the reason for T.J.'s new look last season.

"I think I said, 'You will not walk down the aisle with a buzzcut. It's just not happening,'" she said. "I think he thought he wouldn't look handsome with his hair and he looks so handsome with it."

It looks like he kept his word.

Stauskas, one of the groomsmen at the affair, told our Jessica Camerato about his excitement to be involved with the wedding during the spring.

"It meant a lot to be invited to the wedding," Stauskas said. "It's going to be a special day for me. I may shed a few tears."

No word on if Stauskas shed a tear, but we wish all the best to the newlyweds after their special day.
