New York Knicks have signed Luka Samanic to a two-way contract, a few days after the Croatian forward became a free agent. Samanic was waived by the San Antonio Spurs a couple of days ago.

Samanic appeared in 33 games (four starts) for San Antonio last season, averaging 3.7 points and 2.1 rebounds over 9.3 minutes.

The 21-year-old forward was originally selected with the 19th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft after playing overseas for FC Barcelona (2016-18) and Union Olimpija (2018-19).

He also made 39 appearances with San Antonio’s G League affiliate, Austin Spurs, averaging 16.2 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 29.1 minutes per game.

Samanic will join Jericho Sims, who signed the first two-way contract. The team’s roster stands in 17 players with both Sims and Samanic.
