Former UNC forward Isaiah Hicks signs two-way contract with New York Knicks

Former North Carolina forward Isaiah Hicks has signed a two-way contract with the New York Knicks, the team announced.

The rookie Hicks went undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft and was signed by the Charlotte Hornets for their training camp roster but was released on Oct. 13.

The newly implemented two-way contract allows a player to spend up to 45 days with the NBA team that signs him and the rest of his contract must be served in the G-League. Each NBA team is permitted two two-way contract players, which serves as the 16th and 17th members of their roster.

In his last collegiate campaign, Hicks averaged 11.8 points and 5.5 rebounds and shot 57.6 percent from the field during North Carolina’s national championship season.

Hicks was the ACC’s Sixth Man of the Year as a junior.

Hicks arrived at Chapel Hill as a McDonald’s All-American out of J.F. Webb High School in Oxford, North Carolina,
