The Indiana Pacers have signed forward Terry Taylor and guard Duane Washington Jr., who have been on two-way contracts, to new contracts.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but according to reports, the deals are standard NBA contracts for multiple years. Both players retweeted the report of ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski.
Both players have made good impressions this season while the likes of Myles Turner, T.J. O'Connell, T.J. Warren, Chris Duarte and others have been out with injuries.
Taylor, 22, averaged 9.6 points, 5.2 points and 21.3 minutes over 31 games. He posted career highs of 24 points and 16 rebounds against Orlando on Feb. 2.
Washington, 22, averaged 9.6 points and 20.1 minutes over 46 games this season, scoring 20 or more points four times, including a career-best 22 points twice.
Also on Thursday, the Pacers waived guard Keifer Sykes, who played 32 games for Indiana this season, averaging 5.6 points. And the team signed guard/forward Nate Hinton and guard Gabe York to two-way contracts.
Hinton and York will get a late-season shot with the Pacers after playing for the team's G League affiliate, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Hinton averaged 18.1 points and 8.9 rebounds in 33 games this season, while York averaged 21.8 points, 4.4 assists and 2.4 steals in 34 games.
