Portland Trail Blazers center Moses Brown has had his Exhibit 10 contract converted to a two-way deal, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The rookie seven-footer appeared in all five of the team’s pre-season games.

According to NBC Sports Northwest’s Jamie Hudson, Damian Lillard spoke highly of the UCLA product:

Brown is eligible to spend up to 45 days with the Blazers during the season under a two-way contract, and will spend the rest of the time with a to-be-determined G League team. He joins fellow rookie Jaylen Hoard as the other two-way contract slot allotted to Portland. The Blazers did not carry a two-way player last season.

The 20-year-old big man averaged 9.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks over 23.4 minutes a game during his lone season with the UCLA Bruins. He was a McDonald’s All-American out of New York’s Archbishop Molloy High School, the alma mater of former Blazers guard Kenny Anderson.
