DALLAS – The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have signed guard Daryl Macon to a two-way contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Macon (6-3, 185) went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft after finishing his four-year collegiate career at the University of Arkansas. He competed in seven summer league games for the Miami Heat and averaged 7.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 22.4 minutes per contest.
The Little Rock, Ark., native began his career at Holmes Community College in Goodman, Miss., where he twice earned Region XXIII Player of the Year and National Junior College Athletic Association All-America honors.
Macon transferred to Arkansas after his sophomore season at Holmes and averaged 15.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 28.0 minutes in 71 games (51 starts) in two seasons as a Razorback. As a senior, Macon improved his averages to 16.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists while shooting .447 from the field, .421 from behind-the-arc and .875 from the foul line on his way to being named Second Team All-Southeastern Conference.
The 2018-19 season will mark the second year NBA two-way contracts will be implemented. NBA teams are allowed to have up to two players under 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 with four-or-fewer years of NBA experience are able to sign two-way contracts, which can be for either one or two seasons.
