Jared Terrell signs two-way contract with Minnesota
Former Rhode Island Rams standout Jared Terrell has signed a two-way deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to a team release.
The Minnesota Timberwolves announced the team has signed guard Jared Terrell to a two-way contract. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released.
Terrell, 23, averaged 16.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.5 steals per game this past season at Rhode Island. He shot 42.7% from the floor, including 41.4% from three-point range and 82.1% from the charity stripe. Terrell’s play earned him Atlantic 10 First Team All-Conference Team honors, as well as being named the U.S. Basketball Writer’s Association District I Player of the Year.
Between his sophomore and junior seasons, Jared Terrell averaged 13.1 points, 2.3 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game while shooting 41 percent from the field and 35 percent from beyond the arc. Obviously, when compared to his last season in college, you can see the increase in production from the youngster.
Terrell will almost certainly start with Minnesota’s G-League team, then the franchise will go from there. The Wolves don’t exactly have a ton of room for him on the NBA roster, and despite being a bit longer in the tooth from an experience standpoint than most rookies, he will need some more seasoning before he’s ready for the big stage.
