Mavericks To Make Tyler Bey A Two-Way Player

The Mavericks plan to give a two-way contract to second-round pick Tyler Bey, tweets Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News. Coach Rick Carlisle talked about Bey during a radio interview Thursday and confirmed that Nate Hinton will be the team’s other two-way player.

Bey, a 6’7″ small forward out of Colorado, was taken with the 36th pick in Wednesday’s draft. He drew attention at the virtual combine with a 43.5-inch max vertical leap, the highest ever recorded for a forward.

Shooting guards Antonius Cleveland and Josh Reaves were the Mavericks’ two-way players last season.

  1. Ooooohhh… this means a two-way contract player. Misleading there, Arthur.

    I was wondering for a moment why Dallas needs to announce they want their new pick to play both offence and defence.

    i dont understand why the mavericks would do this, unless they have many free agent targets? mavericks only have two spots open on roster. i know they want to bring courtney lee and jj barea back as locker room guys

    You shouldn’t be allowed to draft players and force them to take two way contracts unless no other team is willing to give them a real job.

    That’s really bullshit.

    Dallas had a really amazing draft night. Really surprised by this, as I had him as a potential option for them at 18. Regardless, they have him, so I’m sure it will end up playing out. He will probably get a regular contract at some point during the season
