On Wednesday, it was announced by the Boston Celtics that they had signed former Arizona Wildcat Kadeem Allen to a two-way NBA contract.

Given that the contract is a two-way deal, it is still unknown as to whether Allen will be a Celtic or a Maine Red Claw (G-League affiliate) for the majority of the season.

Two-way contracts are a new concept being introduced to the NBA after players in developmental leagues could be picked up by any team despite any relations to a single NBA team. Now, these “fringe” players are given a contract to stay with a single organization but still have the chance to play in the G-league. As HoopsHype puts it, it is also a system that encourages players to stay in North America and not go overseas.

The details of the contract have not been revealed yet.

Allen played in every summer league game for the Celtics and registered a high of nine points and five rebounds in their final game against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Celtics schedule will be released in August, so fans might learn the date for Allen’s potential first NBA game then.

Hello from a Bay Area sports fan who was born and raised in Tucson in a Chicago sports household. I am currently majoring in journalism and minoring in physics at the University of Arizona so I can find more brain-wracking stats to explain sports. When I’m not worshiping UA sports I can be found at Tucson Roadrunners games or on my Twitter, @mirachelonice, tweeting about the San Jose Sharks, Golden State Warriors, or San Francisco Giants. Aside from sports I like to binge watch TED talks about space, string theory, and physics, and also Impractical Jokers. Some items on my bucket list are to visit AT&T Park, see Lauri Markkanen play in the NBA, and be able to eat anything hotter than mild at Buffalo Wild Wings.
