To secure his financial future, he was careful with his money, but also started investing in real estate by creating Beach House LLC with his father and childhood friend Joseph Stanton. They went to work with small projects in Portland, as well as South Bend, Ind., where Connaughton attended the University of Notre Dame. They eventually moved onto bigger projects as Connaughton tried to use the connections he has made as an NBA player to their fullest potential. “When you’re in the NBA, that’s the greatest time that people want to meet you, they want to be around you, they want to know who you are,” Connaughton said. “For me, I’ve used that to get into rooms and develop relationships with millionaires and billionaires. I’m in rooms I should have no business being in and I use those people as mentors. I told these guys, ‘Look, everybody that sits courtside at NBA games wanted to be professional athletes at one point in time.’ As pro athletes, we make a ton of money, but we are not the wealthiest people in the world.”
In the first four years of his NBA career, Connaughton says that he has made nearly as much in his different business dealings off the floor as he did in NBA contracts. That off-the-floor success helped him try to show players the importance of the simple message at the core of his presentation. By signing an NBA contract, each player in that room became rich, but if they focus on the wrong things or try to do too much, all of that money could disappear in a hurry.
“I got a chance to work out with him and play one-on-one with him in Las Vegas during Summer League,” Frank Mason said of the man they call The Greek Freak. “It was pretty big time. We did a lot of one-on-one, a lot of skill work, and also worked out with (fellow Bucks) Khris Middleton and Pat Connaughton and it was a good time. We all got better and just watching him live and watching his work ethic was unbelievable. I’m just excited to be a part of the team and to get to play with a guy like that.”
