    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
