The Milwaukee Bucks are signing rookie free agent point guard Myles Powell to a two-way contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Powell is 6-foot-2 and went undrafted out of Seton Hall in 2020. He has been playing well for the Westchester Knicks of the G League, averaging 17.8 points and 3.8 assists on the Disney campus.

The G League regular season concludes this week.

That said, the Bucks’ two two-way slots are currently filled — meaning either Mamadi Diakite or Jaylen Adams will have to be waived before they can sign Powell.

The Bucks currently don’t have a two-way slot open, so they’ll have to waive either  to make room for Powell.

Unlike past seasons, the NBA is expected to drop the 50-game limit allowed for two-way players, as Charania reported. Two-way players will also be available for the playoffs this season.
