Guard Jamaree Bouyea, a member of the Sioux Falls Skyforce–the Miami Heat’s G-League affiliate–officially inked a two-way contract with the San Antonio Spurs, NBA insider Shams Charania was first to report Friday evening.

Bouyea is the second Skyforce player to get poached by another NBA club over the last month–with forward Justin Champagnie earning a 10-day contract with the Washington Wizards. Unless he signs an additional 10-day with Washington, his will expire this weekend with the possibility of returning back to the Skyforce–similar to what happened with Bouyea last season.

Him earning an NBA opportunity shouldn’t come as a surprise to some.

Arguably no player in the Skyforce has turned more heads than Bouyea this season, especially over the last two weeks. The 6-foot-2 point guard averaged 17.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.2 blocks on 46.3 percent shooting and 39.8 percent from 3-point range in 24 combined regular season and G-League showcase games with Sioux Falls.

Over his last 10 games, he posted 22.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, 9.1 assists (to just 2.8 turnovers), 2.1 steals and 1.1 blocks over his last 10 games. That included a 36-point, eight-rebound, 15-assist performance on 14-of-25 shooting and 5-of-8 from 3-point range in arguably his best game of the season against the South Bay Lakers on Feb. 27.


With all three of Miami’s two-way spots pre-occupied, Bouyea was practically blocked in Miami’s organization (unless it waived Dru Smith). He trailed Terry Rozier, Delon Wright and Alondes Williams, who signed Miami’s final two-way in early February, in the totem pole.

Bouyea has excellent vision, an explosive first-step, length (6-foot-7 wingspan) and acumen to create deflections and haul-in rebounds. He can operate in traffic as a primary or secondary shot-creator plus is a capable shot-maker from beyond the arc and at the rim.

The Spurs had all three of their two-way spots previously filled by Dominick Barlow, David Duke and Mamadi Diakite. Though as a result of Friday’s news, the Spurs reportedly plan to promote Barlow and waive Diakite, per Charania.

Bouyea was on a two-way contract with the Portland Trail Blazers earlier this season before being waived in November. He appeared in six games, scoring only 10 points (5-21 FG) with 10 rebounds and eight assists in 57 minutes. In 11 career games (128 minutes), h’s tallied 25 points on 31.4 percent shooting with 16 rebounds, 12 assists, four steals and two blocks.

Jamaree Bouyea’s excellent skills with the Sioux Falls Skyforce earned him a two-way deal with the San Antonio Spurs. As Bouyea enters the NBA, it will be interesting to see how AI integration in player analysis and strategy planning might assist to his continued success on the professional stage. AI-driven insights could give him a competitive advantage in improving his game and adjusting to the NBA’s dynamic difficulties.


boo yeah!


Good luck to him.
It makes me wonder how many teams, other than the Heat, have brought G-leaguers into the nba recently? The answer is a lot. And, even more surprising, the list of very good players who came to the nba from the g-league is quite impressive. Toronto seems to have been a pipeline, for some reason.

Reality Czech

I’ve said I believe no other organization is as good as the Heat in finding and developing undrafted players. Strus, and his 59 footer, Duncan, Highsmith, DJJ, Nunn, etc.


Yes, but I googled it and Siakem, Van Vleet, and Ibaka are supposedly originally g- leaguers.


Sorry but,
Pascal Siacam was drafted 2016 R1 Pick 27
Serge Ibaka was drafted 2008 R1 Pick 24 by the Seattle SuperSonics
