The San Antonio Spurs are converting Charles Bediako’s Exhibit 10 contract to a two-way deal as they prepare for the regular season, as reported by Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report and TNT.
Bediako, a seven-foot center, spent two college seasons at Alabama, where he started 67 out of 70 games for the Crimson Tide.
In the 2022/23 season, he had averages of 6.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in 20.7 minutes per game across 37 games.
During the Summer League in July, Bediako joined the Spurs and played in a total of seven games in Las Vegas and Sacramento.
Following that, the 21-year-old signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the San Antonio Spurs and made brief appearances in a couple of preseason games.
By keeping Bediako on their roster past the date when most players with Exhibit 10 contracts were released for financial reasons, the Spurs signaled their intention to convert his contract to a two-way deal.
With Dominick Barlow and Sir’Jabari Rice also holding two-way contracts, the Spurs had one available two-way slot, making it a straightforward transition without the need for additional moves.
Upon the official completion of this move, the Spurs will have 15 players under standard contracts and three on two-way contracts, ensuring their roster is set for the regular season.
