James Webb III Joins Brooklyn Nets on Two-Way Contract

Forward has played for Delaware 87ers the last two seasons

James Webb III is the newest Brooklyn Net, signed to a two-way contract with the team on Monday.

Webb played 60 games over the last two seasons with the Delaware 87ers of the G League, averaging 12.6 points and 8.4 rebounds. The 87ers are the G League affiliate of the Philadelphia 76ers, for whom Webb played in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas in 2016.

This season, the 6-foot-9 forward was averaging 11.6 points and 6.7 rebounds while shooting 37 percent from 3-point range in 27.3 minutes per game.

Webb played two seasons at Boise State, leaving after the 2015-16 season with one year of eligibility remaining. Webb averaged 13.5 points and 8.6 rebounds over two seasons with the Broncos and was named to the All Mountain West Conference first team in 2016.

This is the first year of two-way contracts that allow NBA teams to add two players to their roster and move between the NBA and the G League, with a limit on NBA service time during the G League season. Webb is the fourth player the Nets have signed to a two-way contract.
