2017/18 NBA Two-Way Contract Tracker

The NBA’s latest Collective Bargaining Agreement introduced a new type of contract the league’s lexicon: the two-way deal.

As we explain in depth in our FAQ, two-way contracts allow NBA teams to carry two extra players in addition to the 15 on their regular season roster. These players spend most of their time with the club’s G League affiliate, but are eligible to join the NBA roster for up to 45 days per season, and remain under team control — they can’t be poached by rival franchises.

Over the last several weeks, many teams have been making use of this new kind of contract by securing players to two-way deals, locking up their rights for the next one or two seasons. Not every team has made a two-way signing so far, but by the time the NBA regular season gets underway, we’ll likely see 60 players around the league on two-way contracts.

With several two-way signings already completed, and many more to follow, we’ll use the space below to track each team’s two-way players for the 2017/18 season. If a signing hasn’t been officially announced as a two-way contract, but has been reported as such, we’ll make a note of that, and update the info as necessary. Players whose two-way contracts are for two years (the maximum), are noted with an asterisk.

This tracker will continue to be updated throughout the 2017/18 league year, and can be found anytime in the “Hoops Rumors Features” menu on the right-hand sidebar.

Here are 2017/18’s two-way players:

    Luke, I have a few questions I was hoping you could answer pertaining to players on two-way contracts. Are players on 2 way deals eligible to make post season appearances if they are below the 45 day restriction? And are they eligible to be traded?

    • bravesfan88

      Hopefully your questions get answered, because I can’t figure out any answers to either question…

      If I had to make my best educated guess, and I think I heard that they can before, but I would say that these players can in fact be traded. That’s because the team still holds that player’s rights, even though it’s only on a two-way contract.

      Now, I’m not sure what would happen if a player on a 2-way contract gets traded to a team that already has both their 2-way contract slots filled!?!?…That is also a really good question, I would like to find out!!

      So, are the 2-way players eligible for the playoffs, if they haven’t exceeded their allotted number of days on the roster??

      And, if 2-way players are eligible to be traded, what happens if they are traded to a team that has already filled both their allotted 2-way slots???

      Those are 3 really good questions, but hopefully someone can find the answers somewhere!!!

        Teams aren’t allowed to carry more than two two-way players, so I’m assuming if a team traded for a two-way player, that team would have to either trade or waive one of its own two-way guys.

    • Luke Adams

      I somehow missed this comment until now. The answers:

      1. Two-way players aren’t eligible for the playoffs. They’d need to be moved to the 15-man roster.

      2. Two-way players CAN be traded.
