The Bucks have signed rookie big man Sandro Mamukelashvili to a two-way contract, per NBA.com’s official transactions log. According to Eric Nehm of The Athletic (Twitter link), the deal will cover two seasons.
Mamukelashvili, who spent four seasons at Seton Hall, averaged 17.5 PPG, 7.6 RPG, and 3.2 APG in 27 games (35.6 MPG) as a senior in 2020/21, earning Big East Player of the Year honors.
The Pacers technically made the 6’11” forward/center the No. 54 pick in the draft last Thursday, but they were making the pick on behalf of the Bucks, having agreed to a trade involving the No. 31 selection. That trade was finalized on draft night.
The Bucks finished the season with Justin Jackson and Axel Toupane on two-way deals, but didn’t make either player a qualifying offer, signaling their intent to turn over those two slots. Mamukelashvili will fill one, while the other remains open for now.
