Izaiah Brockington Signs Two-Way Deal With New Orleans Pelicans

Former Penn State men’s basketball guard Izaiah Brockington signed a two-way contract with the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday. The signing was originally reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and later confirmed by Brockington on social media.

Wojnarowski noted that Brockington injured his ACL prior to the NBA Draft. He was originally projected as a second-round pick prior to the injury.

A two-way contract is a non-guaranteed deal that allows players to appear in up to 50 regular season games without eliminating their G-League eligibility. Two-way players can still practice and travel with the team, even when not activated to the main roster.

Former Penn State forward Lamar Stevens signed a two-way contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers in November 2020 before earning a multi-year deal and a full roster spot.

In June 2022, Brockington signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Pelicans after going undrafted. Exhibit 10 contracts are one-year, minimum deals that can be converted into a two-way contract prior to the regular season.

Brockington transferred from Penn State to Iowa State in May 2021 and a year of career highs ensued. Starting all 35 games and helping the Cyclones make a Sweet Sixteen appearance, Brockington averaged 16.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 1.3 steals in 34.6 minutes per game.

At Penn State, Brockington played 56 games in two years. In his time donning the blue and white, he averaged 10.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 0.9 steals per game.
