Suns Sign Ty-Shon Alexander To Two-Way Deal

NOVEMBER 24: Alexander has officially signed his two-way contract with the Suns, according to the NBA’s transactions log.

NOVEMBER 22: The Suns have agreed to sign undrafted rookie guard Ty-Shon Alexander to a two-way contract, according to Matt Babcock of Babcock Hoops (Twitter link). Alexander essentially confirmed the report, quoting Babock’s tweet and thanking the Suns for the opportunity.

Alexander played his college ball at Creighton, declaring for the draft this year after his junior season. In 31 games (34.7 MPG) for the Bluejays, he averaged 16.9 PPG, 5.0 RPG, and 2.3 APG on .431/.399/.860 shooting.

Mike Schmitz of ESPN, ranking Alexander as the ninth-best undrafted prospect, praised his “smooth shooting stroke and stellar defense,” suggesting he has the tools to develop into a three-and-D off guard.

Tariq Owens finished the 2019/20 season as Phoenix’s only player on a two-way contract, but didn’t receive a qualifying offer, so the club will likely look to sign a second two-way player to join Alexander.
