Kelan still on fiyaaaaah!
Announcers are clueless, Brandon Miller recruited Martin not Stevens. They did throw Kelen a bone while babbling about some guy who was drafted, hopefully he gets
a chance with some team in the Association. He has represented himself well
Kelan has 15 points and four rebounds in 16 minutes.
I want Kelan to run over Grayson Allen, and give his patented flex pose......
Led the team in scoring again with 19 points plus five rebounds in 26 minutes.
He was doing the Shelvin Mack power dribble on top of the key when he had a mismatch. He had that look of a Dawg when he caught fire. Great job. I thought if they won he could of got MVP.
Ended summer league as leading scorer at 12.8 and leading rebounder at 6.6/game for Minnesota. Fourth in minutes played.
Think if I was him I would take two-way deal if one was offered and try to make the NBA full-time in next 2 years and if it doesn’t workout then go overseas again for 5-7 years and try to get $250-$300k/ year overseas.
what exactly is a two way deal?
Kelan has signed a two-way contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Charlie Clifford (@cliffwish8) confirmed the news on Twitter.
Not a big follower of the NBA. What does a two way contract mean?
Max amount he can make is 385K. Mom 70k. Will play in G league or can make Timberwolves roster out of camp. After two years, team can tender him a deal. Can get called up to active roster.

Good for Kelen, I wish him well. He worked hard and it paid off for him.
A couple of years ago the NBA added two roster spots for each team to have players on two-way contracts. The players on a two-way contract split time between the parent club and its G League team. Their pay is based on which team they're actually playing for with the minimums and maximums @cornette33 mentioned. They can only spend 45 days with the parent club before the team has to send them back or make a roster spot available - with the corresponding pay on either the rookie or veteran scale.
Long story short: A two-way contract is a great way for a young player to get an opportunity in the NBA. It's a bigger investment by the parent club than just getting signed on as a regular G League player and overall pay is more competitive with overseas opportunities.
Thanks for the explanation NCJon. Like others have said, very happy for Kelan.

I think Jared did this two years ago, but it would be interesting to summarize all the program alumni playing professionally - we all know where Hayward is playing, but I lose track of where Dunham is or Chrabascz, Roteni, et.al.
It might also be somewhat interesting to recruits.
