    How often do you think guys sign full NBA contracts without getting drafted and not getting two way contracts but by their summer league performance?

    A two-way contract is great, I like others think JP has a place in the NBA, play some D, work on his shot, and hustle his ass off. That's valuable minutes off the bench, and he'd be a crowd favorite.

    I understand that. My point is that it's very unlikely for guys to not get drafted and sign contracts better than a two way contract in the NBA.

    Here are the specific details for the new two-way contract:
    •They will act as a 16th and 17th roster spot for NBA teams beginning next season (2017-18).
    •The player can spend up to 45 days with the NBA team that signs him, although no time is guaranteed.
    •The rest of the player’s contract must be spent in the G-League, either for the team’s affiliate or another’s if the team he signs with doesn’t have a G-League affiliate yet. For the 2017-18 season, the G-League will represent 26 of the NBA’s 30 teams.
    •The player’s pay comes on a tiered salary system, which can last one or two seasons. While in the G-League, the player will make $75,000. It’s a significant increase from the current pay structure for G-Leaguers, who cannot make more than $26,000 with a one-way G-League deal.
    •When in the NBA, a player with a two-way contract will accrue a day of service and make money consistent with an NBA rookie minimum, which is about $816,000 next season. If a player spends 45 days in the NBA, he could make around $204,000.
    •In total, a two-way player who spends the maximum amount of time in the NBA would make $279,000.

    I think for 2018-2019 the salary has went up to 80k and since the league minimum in the NBA is slightly higher, I think I read that if he plays 45 days with the Hornets he will get 304k.
