2018/19 NBA Two-Way Contract Tracker

One of the notable new additions in the NBA’s current Collective Bargaining Agreement, which went into effect at the start of the 2017/18 league year, is the two-way contract.

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.

In 2017/18, several two-way players proved crucial to their respective teams’ success. Some, like Quinn Cook of the Warriors, parlayed their two-way deals into guaranteed contracts and spots on a 15-man roster. Others, like Tyrone Wallace, remained on their two-way contracts the entire season, but still become integral parts of their teams’ rotations.

NBA teams have begun to fill in their two-way slots for the 2018/19 league year, so we’ll track all those deals in the space below. Some two-way players from 2017/18 inked two-year contracts and remain under contract for this season, while others have been newly signed.

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 who are in the first year of two-way contracts that cover two years (the maximum), are noted with an asterisk.

This tracker will continue to be updated throughout the 2018/19 league year, and can be found anytime in the “Hoops Rumors Features” menu on the right-hand sidebar of our desktop site, or in the “Features” menu on our mobile site.
