Sixers Convert Michael Foster Jr. To Two-Way Deal, Waive Charlie Brown Jr.

11:40am: The Sixers have officially converted Foster’s deal to a two-way contract and waived Brown, the team announced in a press release.

9:36am: Michael Foster Jr. will receive a two-way contract with the Sixers, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Charlie Brown Jr. will be released from his two-way deal in a corresponding move.

Foster, a 19-year-old forward, joined the team in July on an Exhibit 10 contract after playing for G League Ignite last season. He appeared in three games during the preseason, averaging 1.7 PPG in 6.1 minutes per night.

Foster also played for the Sixers during Summer League and was considered to be one of the best players not selected in this year’s draft.

Brown, a 25-year-old shooting guard, signed a 10-day contract with Philadelphia in January and was given a two-way deal when that expired. He got into 19 games with the Sixers and averaged 1.5 points and 1.6 rebounds in limited minutes. Brown also played three games for the Mavericks last season and has spent time with the Hawks and Thunder as well.

The move likely sets Philadelphia’s roster ahead of Tuesday’s regular season opener, as the team now has 14 players on standard contracts and a pair on two-way deals. The Sixers are expected to keep one roster spot open, tweets Derek Bodner of The Athletic.
