DECEMBER 18, 7:29pm: Brian Lewis of the New York Post has tweeted that Doyle’s two-way contract is for this season only.
DECEMBER 18, 11:12am: After officially waiving two-way player Yakuba Ouattara on Sunday, the Nets have moved quickly to replace him. As expected, Brooklyn has signed Milton Doyle to a two-way contract, the club announced today in a press release.
Doyle, 24, initially joined the Nets in August as a training camp invitee after graduating from Loyola, where he averaged 15.3 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 4.4 APG, and 1.8 SPG in his senior year. The 6’4″ guard didn’t earn a spot on Brooklyn’s regular season roster, but after waiving him in October, the Nets made him an affiliate player for their G League squad, the Long Island Nets.
In 17 G League games so far this season, Doyle has averaged a team-high 21.3 PPG to go along with 5.7 RPG, 3.9 APG, and 1.6 SPG. He’s also launching a ton of threes, attempting 8.8 per games and making 3.4, good for a .383 3PT%.
Signing a two-way contract won’t change Doyle’s situation significantly — he’ll remain with the Long Island Nets, but he’ll earn a little more money and could see some playing time with the NBA club in Brooklyn. Our full breakdown of how two-way contracts work can be found right here.
