Report: Pelicans to sign Trevon Bluiett to two-way contract
Summer league basketball may not make NBA dreams come true, but it can open the door for a chance to dream bigger.
That has held true for undrafted free agent Trevon Bluiett, who has earned a two-way contract with the Pelicans:

Blueitt impressed in Las Vegas summer league action as the Pelicans’ top scorer. His quick release and long range shooting prowess has shown the 6-foot-6 swingman’s potential at the next level. He scored 50 points over his first two summer league outings.
The second all-time leading scorer in Xavier Musketeers history was a semifinalist for the 2018 Naismith National Player of the Year award.
NBA players on two-way contracts can earn up to $204,000, spending 45 days on the active roster and the rest of the season in the developmental G League.
