Former UNC b-ball standout James Michael McAdoo has found a new split-level home with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders.
Scotto tweeted about McAdoo’s new two-way contract – a first for the Sixers franchise – on Sunday.
Two-way contracts allows teams to carry 15 players on a regular season roster but also have two extra players under a two-way contract, according to Inside Carolina’s Scout.com. The two-way players spend most of their time in the NBA’s G League but can be called to play in the league. Other teams can’t sign two-way players.
McAdoo, 24, will spend most of his time playing for the Delaware 87ers in the NBA’s G League.
