Former St. Bonaventure guard Jaylen Adams wasn’t selected in Thursday’s NBA Draft but found a landing spot less than 24 hours later. The 2018 co-Atlantic 10 Player of the Year signed a two-way contract with the Atlanta Hawks on Friday.
Two-way contracts, first introduced by the league last season, allow players to spend up to 45 days with the NBA franchise. Once a player exceeds that limit, they must spend the rest of the contract in the G League. Each team has a pair of two-way roster spots.
Adams departed St. Bonaventure as the top scoring guard in program history, totaling 1,912 points over his four-year career. He averaged 19.1 points per game this season for the Bonnies, who earned their first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 2012.
