Lakers Sign Travis Wear To Two-Way Deal

1:54pm: The Lakers have officially signed Wear to a two-way contract, the team announced today in a press release.

11:29am: The Lakers have reached an agreement to sign free agent forward Travis Wear to a two-way contract, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter).

Wear has had multiple stints with the Lakers over the last couple years. He participated in training camp with the club in 2016 and played for the Lakers’ G League affiliate in each of the last two seasons. In the second half of the 2017/18 campaign, he signed a pair of 10-day contracts with L.A., followed by a rest-of-season deal.

In 17 games for the Lakers last season, Wear averaged 4.4 PPG and 2.2 RPG in 13.4 minutes per contest, knocking down 36.2% of his three-pointers. He was more effective for the South Bay Lakers, recording 16.2 PPG, 8.1 RPG, and a .445/.419/.855 shooting line in 34 G League games.

Wear will join Alex Caruso as the two Lakers currently on two-way contracts. The club had signed Malik Newman to a two-way deal at the start of the month, but cut him last week, opening up a slot for Wear.
