Oklahoma City Thunder second-round pick and former Maryland Terrapins guard Aaron Wiggins has signed a two-way contract, the team announced this week.

Wiggins earned All-Big Ten honorable mention honors after averaging 14.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.1 steals in 31 games last season. He finished the season on a high note, posting 17.9 points and 6.6 rebounds over his last 12 games.

The 55th overall pick finished the Las Vegas Summer League by averaging 11.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 blocked shots in five games. He produced his best game on Aug. 11 after recording 16 points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Wiggins will split his time next season between the Thunder and Oklahoma City Blue in the NBA G League. He will have the opportunity to develop with the Blue while gaining some NBA experience throughout the season with the Thunder.

Players this season signed to two-way contracts are eligible to spend no more than 50 games in the NBA. They will earn a flat salary equal to 50% of the minimum salary applicable to a player with zero years of service.
