After Lonzo Bauer and Lamelo Bauer, “two-ball” Liangelo Bauer also finally landed in the NBA. Today, According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Two-ball has signed an Exhibit 10 contract with The Pistons. With all three Bauer brothers on NBA contracts at the same time, it’s no wonder Laval Bauer is beaming. But can the two balls stay in the pistons? All three brothers are now expected to play in the 2019-20 NBA season. He has played in the NBA for three seasons. He was picked by the Hornets at no. 3 and signed with the Pistons today. After hearing the news, the dad tweeted a picture of his three sons wearing their respective team jerseys from the back, expressing his pride and saying, “We’re just getting started!” There has been no shortage of precedent for three brothers playing in the NBA at the same time. The Barry brothers (June, Brent and Drew), Plumley brothers (Miles, Mason and Marshall), Zeller brothers (Luke, Taylor and Cody), Holliday brothers (Justin, Chu and Aaron) and Antetokos brothers (Thanassis, Yannis and Costas).
However, Two-Ball is an Exhibit 10 contract with the Pistons. The contract does not count toward the team’s salary cap, and NBA teams will decide before the start of the regular season whether to turn it into a two-way contract. If the player who signed the contract is cut and joins a Developmental League affiliate for up to 60 days, the player will receive a bonus of $5,000 to $50,000. Technically, it’s called Exhibit 10, and it’s an unguaranteed one-year base salary. The players who sign Exhibit 10 will have a hard time making it in the NBA. Previously, the lone Ranger and Ding Yanyu airlines signed such a contract.
That makes it hard for the pistons to stay in the pistons. Pistons coach Casey said yesterday how rose will be used would be very different from the 2019-20 season. The pistons signed Deron Wright in the offseason and selected Killian Hayes, both guards, who are expected to play alongside Rose in the lineup. Casey also revealed his preference for Hayes, the no. 7 overall pick in the 2020 draft, saying he would play him in key NBA moments to get him adjusted as quickly as possible. Wright, the 20th overall pick of the 2015 draft, is a 1.96-meter point guard from the University of Utah. He has averaged 7.3 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 271 NBA games after stints with Toronto, Memphis, and the Mavericks.
The Pistons also signed Saben Lee, the 38th overall pick in the 2020 draft and a 1.88-meter guard from Vanderbilt University. Although the two-ball position is no. 2, if the Pistons insist on a three-back, though, he’s not guaranteed a chance, but chances are slim. As a result, it is highly unlikely that Two-Ball will be converted to a two-way contract before next season and will instead join the Pistons’ D-League affiliate. After all, Two-Ball had previously played for the Thunder’s D-League affiliate. The Three Bauer brothers playing in the NBA might just look good.
