CHICAGO — The Chicago Bulls have signed former LSU guard Antonio Blakeney to a two-way contract.

Blakeney went undrafted after averaging 17.2 points and earning All-SEC second-team honours last season.

Two-way contracts are new to the NBA for the upcoming season. They allow a player to spend up to 45 days on an NBA roster while also playing in the G League.

The Bulls announced the move Friday.
