The Trail Blazers have signed wing Keljin Blevins to a two-way contract for the 2020-21 season. Blevins, who is Damian Lillard’s cousin, reported the news on his Instagram account on Tuesday.

CJ McCollum, Anfernee Simons and Gary Trent Jr. were among the first people to congratulate Blevins on his new deal.

Blevins went undrafted out of Montana State after the conclusion of the 2018-19 season. With the Bobcats, he averaged 11.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per game during his senior season. Last year, Blevins was a part of the Blazers’ Summer League and training camp rosters.

At the conclusion of the Blazers’ 2019 training camp, Blevins landed with the Northern Arizona Suns. In 35 G League outings, Blevins averaged 16.1 minutes and 4.3 points per game.

As Blazer’s Edge contributor and cap expert Eric Griffith pointed out, Blevins’ contract will not push the Blazers into the luxury tax.

For the 2020-21 season, the NBA is allowing two-way players to stick with teams beyond the 45-day window that was in place last year.
