Bucks give Bonzie Colson a two-way contract
January 16, 2019
The Milwaukee Bucks yesterday announced that the team has signed forward Bonzie Colson. It's a two-way contract, not a standard contract. Which means Colson will mostly play in the G League.
Colson, listed at 6-foot-5, has spent this season playing in the G League for the Canton Charge. He played in 23 games for the Charge, starting 22 of them, and averaged 15.5 points and 7.7 rebounds in 28.9 minutes outing, on 49.1% FG shooting.
Colson played four college basketball seasons for Notre Dame, putting up modest numbers: 13.1 points and 7.2 rebounds per outing, on excellent 52.8% shooting. He entered the 2018 NBA draft but went undrafted. And continues working his way up the ladder, in the hope of landing himself a regular season contract. A two-way deal is obviously a step in the right direction.
Colson will wear Bucks jersey No. 50.
The Bucks have been one of the league's big success stories so far this season. They are currently 31-12, which is the second best record in the entire NBA, only behind the 33-12 Toronto Raptors. Superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 26.4 points, 12.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.5 blocks per game and is a leading candidate for the league's MVP award.
