Jaylen Martin Signs Two-Way Deal With Knicks

JULY 3: Martin’s two-way contract with the Knicks is now official, per NBA.com’s transaction log.

JUNE 23: Undrafted former Overtime Elite guard Jaylen Martin has agreed to a two-way contact with the Knicks, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).

The 19-year-old averaged 14 points, 5.9 dimes, 1.6 steals, 1.4 rebounds and 0.7 blocks a night across 23.3 minutes per during his lone season with the Atlanta-based developmental league, per Overtime Elite’s official website.

As a two-way signing, the 6’6″ prospect is expected to split his time between New York and the club’s NBAGL affiliate, the Westchester Knicks.

With New York having already agreed to sign former Kentucky forward Jacob Toppin, younger brother of Knicks power forward Obi Toppin, to a two-way contract earlier tonight, two of the team’s three available two-way slots are now accounted for.

It remains to be seen whether or not New York will decide to bring back either of last year’s two-way players, shooting guard Trevor Keels and combo guard Duane Washington, to occupy that third and final two-way contract.
