The Sacramento Kings are signing Jordan Ford, 25, to a two-way contract.

According to NBA insider Chris Haynes, Sacramento has agreed to a two-way contract with Ford.

Ford signed a training camp contract with Sacramento on July 13. Within two days, he had impressed the team enough to earn a new contract.

“I’ve always been a Sacramento fan. I actually envisioned myself [playing for Sacramento], and hopefully that will happen soon,” he said.

With the two-way deal, Ford will be on Sacramento’s regular season roster, but will be limited to 50 games. He will also be ineligible for the playoffs unless Sacramento calls him up to a full contract.

Ford previously played in a Sacramento uniform in the 2023 Summer League in Las Vegas and Sacramento. In six games, he averaged 14.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, five assists, and one steal on 50 percent shooting from the field, 34.6 percent from three, and 80 percent from the free throw line.바카라

Ford, who has Sacramento ties, is a Northern California native. He played at Folsom High School in Sacramento.

Meanwhile, the NBA expanded the number of two-way contracts from two to three starting this season. The addition of two-way contracts allows teams to keep promising young players on the roster while developing them into key players in the G League. Sacramento currently has two two-way contracts.
