OKC Bringing In Former Aggie Tyler Davis to Two-Way Deal

OKC Bringing In Former Aggie Tyler Davis to Two-Way Deal

The Oklahoma City Thunder is reportedly bringing in former Texas A&M center Tyler Davis to their remaining two-way contract. Davis went undrafted in last April’s draft. This is all according to Yahoo! Sports Shams Charania.

In three seasons in College Station, Davis averaged 13.4 points and 7.4 rebounds.

Davis made a lot of impressions after a solid 18 point, nine rebound and three block performance against the second-seeded North Carolina Tarheels in last March’s NCAA tournament.

The Thunder’s roster is set at 15 after the signing of Hamidou Diallo two weeks ago. This will more than likely relegate Davis to Oklahoma City’s G-League squad, the Blue, for the most part.

Davis joins fellow Thunder rookie Deonte Burton as the other two-way contract. Two-way players can spend no more than 45 days on an NBA roster if they are called up from the G-League. Because of this, they do not count against the salary cap.

Oklahoma City’s other rookie draft pick Devon Hall has recently signed with the Cairns Taipans of the Australian NBL. Kevin Hervey’s future is still unknown at this point but will likely be a G-League player.
