Thunder sign Donte Grantham to two-way contract
December 28, 2018
The Oklahoma City Thunder today signed forward Donte Grantham to a multi-year two-way Contract.
We have actually not seen the phrase "multi-year two-way contract" very often. That doesn't mean they never happen. NBA signing announcements rarely specify the length of time of the deal. But as for two-way deals, most of them are for a single season.
Of course, the team and player, after signing a two-way contract, can rip it up and agree to a new, standard, regular season deal. Should the team decide it wants the player as a full member of their roster.
A two-way contract means a player will spend the majority of the season playing in the G League.
The 6-foot-8, 210-pound Grantham has played in nine games (six starts) this season in the G League with the Oklahoma City Blue, averaging 10.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 26.4 minutes per game. He's shooting well from outside: 40.0% from three-point range.
A naive of Martinsburg, West Virginia, Grantham played four years of college basketball at Clemson, where in 114 games (113 starts) he averaged 9.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 30.2 minutes per outing.
