Rockets Sign Trevor Hudgins to Two-Way Contract

Posted: July 1, 2022 -- 1:13 p.m.

Friday afternoon, the Houston Rockets announced they have signed free agent rookie guard Trevor Hudgins to a two-way contract.

Hudgins (6'0", 180) was eligible for the 2022 NBA Draft following his redshirt senior season at Division II's Northwest Missouri State. He led the Bearcats to three Division II championships and an overall record of 131-8, including a perfect 38-0 mark during his freshman season in 2018-19.

For his career, Hudgins averaged 20.4 points, 5.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.4 steals while shooting 51.7% from the floor, 46.5% from 3-point range and 87.8% from the line. Hudgins was named NABC Division II Player of the Year as both a junior and a senior, becoming the fourth Division II player to have won the award in consecutive years.

During a six-point loss to No. 4 ranked Duke in a 2019 exhibition game, Hudgins scored a game-high 27 points while hitting seven 3-pointers. He averaged 3.6 three-point field goals made per game over his final three seasons. Some former Rockets who attended Division II schools include Mario Elie, Caldwell Jones, Major Jones, Moochie Norris, and Purvis Short.

NBA teams may have up to two players under NBA Two-Way contracts who will spend the bulk of the season in the NBA G League and not more than 45 days with their NBA team. Two-Way players are paid a corresponding daily amount based on the number of days they play in each league. Only players in their fourth NBA season or earlier are able to sign Two-Way contracts, which can be for either one or two seasons.

Players signed to two-way contracts are not eligible to compete in the NBA Playoffs unless the contract is converted to a full-time roster spot.

Two-Way contracts are worth half of a rookie minimum contract — roughly $502,000 for the 2022-23 NBA season.
