The Sixers have officially completed a pair of two-way contract agreements that were reported shortly after the 2023 draft ended last week, having put out a press release confirming that they’ve signed undrafted rookies Terquavion Smith and Ricky Council to two-way deals.
Smith earned All-ACC honors as a sophomore at NC State this past season after averaging 17.9 points and 4.1 assists in 33.6 minutes per game across 34 appearances. The 6’4″ guard was a 35.2% three-point shooter in his two college seasons.
Council, who began his college career at Wichita State, transferred to Arkansas for his junior year in 2022/23 and averaged 16.1 PPG in 36 games (34.1 MPG) for the Razorbacks. The 6’6″ wing declared for the draft as an early entrant.
Teams will be permitted to carry three players on two-way contracts for the first time in 2023/24, and the Sixers had a clear idea after the draft about how they wanted to fill those slots. Besides reaching deals with Smith and Council, they also agreed to sign Arizona State’s Azuolas Tubelis. His signing hasn’t been finalized yet, but there’s no reason to believe it won’t be.
