Thunder sign Daniel Hamilton to first two-way contract in team history
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
The Thunder have signed one of their 2016 NBA Draft picks to the first two-way contract in team history.
The team announced August 3 that they have signed Daniel Hamilton to a two-way contract. Beginning this season, NBA teams are allowed to sign two players to two-way contracts in addition to the 15 players on the roster. Players on the contract will be able to play in the NBA G-League and up to 45 days on their NBA team.
Hamilton was selected 56th overall by the Denver Nuggets in the 2016 NBA Draft. His draft rights were then acquired by the Thunder.
“Daniel has shown significant strides in his development since entering our program,” Thunder GM Sam Presti said.
The UConn grad averaged 14.9 points, 8 rebounds and 4.7 assists during the 2016-2017 Oklahoma City Blue season. He also notched 15 double-doubles and the team's only triple-double of the season.
Members of the Oklahoma City Blue have had a good summer. Center Dakari Johnson was signed to a deal with the Thunder in late July.
