Chris Vivlamore: The Hawks do expect to sign a second two-way player. Staff scouring summer league for candidate.

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has signed center Naz Reid to a two-way contract. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released. Reid, 19, appeared in 34 games as a freshman for Louisiana State in 2018-19, averaging 13.6 points and a team-high 7.2 rebounds in 27.2 minutes.
Rod Beard: #Pistons also announce they have signed forward Louis King to a two-way contract. Jordan Bone will be the other two-way signee, but that paperwork is still stuck on I-75.
The Indiana Pacers announced Monday they have signed forward Brian Bowen II to a two-way contract. In addition, the Pacers signed forward JaKeenan Gant and guard C.J. Wilcox to Exhibit 10 contracts.
Brad Townsend: OK, clarification from source on Josh Reaves/Mavs. He will be classified as an Exhibit 10 player. Exhibit 10 deals are one-year for the minimum salary, but can only be converted to a two-way deal before the regular season begins. If that happens, then Macon or Kostas would be waived.
Shams Charania: Undrafted Gonzaga guard Zach Norvell has agreed to a two-way NBA contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources tell @The Athletic @Stadium.
Jeremy Woo: League sources: the Indiana Pacers have agreed to a two-way contract with Brian Bowen, who spent last season with the Sydney Kings.

The Milwaukee Bucks have requested waivers on guard Trevon Duval. The undrafted rookie from Duke originally signed a Two-Way contract on July 24, 2018.

Shams Charania: Sources @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium: The Raptors and forward Chris Boucher have agreed to a multiyear NBA contract, converting Boucher to a full deal from his two-way.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed forward Deng Adel to a Two-Way contract, Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman announced today. Adel (6-7, 200) has played in 25 games (24 starts) this season for the Raptors 905 of the NBA G League, averaging 13.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 31.6 minutes per game. He played three years collegiately at Louisville, where he averaged 11.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 26.8 minutes per game over 89 games (71 starts). The Khartoum, South Sudan native originally went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft.
In a minor roster move, the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to sign G League player Deng Adel to a two-way contract and waive Jalen Jones, league sources told cleveland.com. Adel will ink his contract Tuesday, the final day for teams to sign players to new two-way deals, and is expected to report to the Canton Charge.
Jones did nothing wrong with the Cavaliers and everyone in the organization really liked him, including head coach Larry Drew. Jones averaged 5.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 13.4 minutes. He reached double figures in scoring twice over the last six games. But by rule, Jones started with just 34 days that he could spend with the Cavaliers and those were almost up. A league source estimated that Jones had just 10 days remaining with the Cavs before the team needed to make a decision between signing him to a contract or sending him back down to the G League until that season ended.
Jaron Blossomgame, Cleveland's other two-way player, still has more time that he can spend with the Cavs. But his days are also starting to run out. A source said the Cavs' plan for now is to either send Blossomgame back down Canton when his NBA time is up or he could be a candidate for the team's final roster spot, depending on what happens with Cameron Payne.
The Knicks are planning to sign Kadeem Allen to a two-way contract prior to the Jan. 15 deadline to add two-way players, sources confirmed. Allen was with the Knicks in training camp and signed an Exhibit 10 contract to remain with the Knicks' G League club. He averaged 13.7 points on 47 percent shooting, 5.7 assists 1.6 steals per game for Westchester.
Allen is also known as a strong perimeter defender. He will take the two-way spot that was vacated when the Knicks signed Allonzo Trier to a standard NBA contract. Allen, whose signing was first reported by The Athletic, will have roughly 23 days of NBA service available with this contract.
The Rockets have begun talks with House’s agent on a new deal, two individuals with knowledge of the team’s plans said. If House remains on a two-way contract, he would be a restricted free agent in the off-season.
Adrian Wojnarowski: After complications finalizing a new China Basketball Association contract, center Alan Williams has decided to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets on a two-way contract, league sources tell ESPN. He’s expected to be dressed for game against Toronto on Friday.
Jared Terrell is on a two-way NBA contract, so there are times where he has no idea if he’ll be with the Timberwolves or the team’s G-League affiliate in Iowa. On Wednesday, he was back home in Boston, where the Celtics topped the Timberwolves, 115-102. The Weymouth native and former Rhode Island standout was active for Minnesota, with Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose both injured. It was an unexpected trip home for Terrell, who was undrafted and signed a two-way deal on July 5. “It’s been a couple of months [away] but it feels good to be home.” he said. “I couldn’t circle [the game] on my calendar because I’m a two-way player and I spent time with both teams, so I didn’t know if I’d be called up or not. It’s just one of those things that just happened.”
AEK Athens and Xavier Rathan-Mayes have mutually agreed to terminate the player’s contract, the Greek club announced. The announcement of AEK mentions that the club wanted to help Rathan-Mayes who is pursuing a deal in the USA. Eurohoops has learned that the player is in talks with the Toronto Raptors, New York Knicks and the Washington Wizards in order to potentially land a two-way contract.

He has played in 18 games (18 starts) this season for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBA G League, averaging 17.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 35.1 minutes per game. At LSU, Sampson played in 85 games (40 starts) from 2015-18. Over his career with the Tigers, he averaged 7.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists, scoring a career-high 24 points twice in the 2016-17 season.

He has scored more than 20 points four times, including a season-high 25 with 8 rebounds and 4 assists against New Orleans on Nov. 23.
The Phoenix Suns today signed guard Jawun Evans to a two-way contract. Evans has played in 14 games this season with the Suns’ NBA G League affiliate, the Northern Arizona Suns.

Sixers not close to trading Ben Simmons

Complicating matters with that caveat of right now, of course, is the reality that the Sixers also do not appear close to a trade they are willing to go through with that gives Simmons his desired fresh start. More than two months after posting one of my Tuesday newsletter extravaganzas on Substack for the first time on July 13 — also a breakdown, on that occasion, of the latest on the Simmons front — Philadelphia looks no closer to a trade to bring an end to this stalemate.
This rumor is part of a storyline: 260 more rumors
Weeks of Philadelphia’s Simmons talks with various teams haven’t brought the Sixers to the brink of a deal, largely because Morey is the one faced with trying to get commensurate value for his All-Star and still asking for so much in return in his determination to recoup a trade package that, as one source put it, keeps Philadelphia in title contention. History, however, says that Philadelphia’s president of basketball operations shouldn’t count on getting a glittering package back when a deal finally materializes — his own history.
I reported Monday that the Sixers don’t expect Simmons to show and are resigned to try to keep working behind the scenes to try to convince him to reconsider that stance. After I published that, another source close to the situation told me: “Right now, I don’t see a scenario where Ben is back in Philly.” The source meant it with permanence. As in: Simmons’ career with the Sixers, to the source, is over.
I was told very clearly that the Sixers do not liken these circumstances to Al Horford’s last season in Oklahoma City or John Wall’s in Houston. As the start of training camp draws near, Philadelphia has shown zero interest to date in striking the sort of mutual agreement that Wall and the Rockets just hatched to shelve the former All-Star point guard.
Storyline: Ben Simmons Trade?
The Sixers have not lowered the bar on what they’re seeking in a Simmons trade — yet. Toronto, Minnesota, Cleveland, San Antonio and Sacramento — all of them, league sources say, have engaged with Philadelphia in Simmons trade talks. They’re also all bubble playoff teams at best based in markets not known for attracting free agents and surely love the idea of acquiring Simmons when the 25-year-old is locked into three guaranteed seasons on his contract after this one.
