The San Antonio Spurs have converted the two-way contract of center Charles Bassey to a standard NBA contract, the team announced on Tuesday.
According to Shams Charania, it’s a four-year deal worth $10.2 million, including guarantees of $5.2 million.
The 22-year-old Bassey, originally selected by the 76ers in the second round of the 2021 NBA Draft, has appeared in 25 games with San Antonio this season, averaging 4.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 13.6 minutes. The 6-11 center signed a two-way contract with the Spurs in October after being waived by the 76ers.
