    Congrats to Deonte!

    Also, I figured this deserved its own thread, and not stuffed in a thread about his time with the Timberwolves.

    Wow, Good For Deonte. He must be impressing at practice because his first game was just okay.
    OKC is going to be cash strapped with the George and Melo contract stretch there be room for cheap options on the end of the bench. Good choice by him for his second NBA chance.

    I think that first summer league game with 8 boards will not be a fluke. Playing more at his natural 2-3 he is going to really rebound for his position in the more open NBA game.

    He looks even more chiseled than when he was here.

    Thunder Signs Deonte Burton to Two-Way Contract

    Posted: Jul 07, 2018
    OKLAHOMA CITY, July 7, 2018 – The Oklahoma City Thunder has signed guard Deonte Burton to a Two-Way Contract, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released.

    Burton (6-5, 250) spent the 2017-18 season with Wonju Dongbu Promy of South Korea’s KBL, where he appeared in 63 games (all starts) and averaged 23.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.65 steals and 1.03 blocks in 31.1 minutes per contest while shooting 47.1 percent (549-1166) from the field.

    The Milwaukee native spent two years at Marquette before transferring to Iowa State where he was named Big 12 Newcomer of the Year for the 2015-16 campaign and was selected to the All-Big 12 Second Team the following season. In his two years as a Cyclone, Burton appeared in 61 games (42 starts) and averaged 12.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.38 steals and 1.06 blocks in 25.0 minutes per game.

    Per NBA rules, each team is allowed two players on Two-Way Contracts in addition to the standard 15 players on the roster. Players on Two-Way Contracts spend most of the season in the NBA G League, but can be called up to their NBA team for a maximum of 45 days.

    Finished up 6 for 8 shooting, 1 of 2 from three. Seems like a pretty good first outing on the whole.

    How long as the two way contract been a thing? Is it new? I’d never heard of it until Monte signed one last year with Denver.
