Buddy Boeheim signs two-way contract with Detroit Pistons

Former Syracuse basketball star Buddy Boeheim signed a two-way contract with the Detroit Pistons on Thursday night after he was not selected in the 2022 NBA Draft, per ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.

Boeheim led the ACC in scoring last season at 19.2 points while adding 3.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game.


A two-way contract allows a player to make less than an NBA minimum salary, but more than a standard G League contract. The player also gets to practice with the NBA team and play a certain number of games with the NBA squad.

Cole Swider, Boeheim’s teammate at Syracuse last season, signed a two-way contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
