Joe Wieskamp is officially a San Antonio Spur.

Just hours after the Spurs closed out their Summer League schedule, Scott Dochterman of The Athletic reported that the rookie out of Iowa has agreed to a two-way contract with San Antonio.

Wieskamp was one of three Spurs with a team-high 12 points in the 116-91 summer finale loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He averaged 10.4 points in 23 minutes this summer in Las Vegas, playing all five games. Wieskamp shot 30 percent from beyond the arc and averaged just over five rebounds per game.

Wieskamp’s commitment means that the Spurs have signed both of their selections from the 2021 NBA Draft. Last week San Antonio signed first-round selection Joshua Primo to an undisclosed contract, per the NBA.

The 41st overall selection this summer, Wieskamp played three seasons with the Hawkeyes where he stood out as a three-point specialist. He now joins Keita Bates-Diop as the Spurs’ two-way contract players for the 2021-2022 season. Per the NBA for this season, “A player under a two-way contract will be permitted to be on the NBA team’s active list for no more than 50 games during the regular season, with no limit on practices, workouts or other activities with the NBA team.”

Past two-way contracts for the Spurs have included Drew Eubanks, Quinndary Weatherspoon, and Chimezie Metu.

Update: This article has been corrected to the 50 game limit per the NBA’s Board of Governors’ approved change to the rules for the 2021-2022 NBA season. Regarding the two-way terms, it used to read “Per NBA rules, two-way players may not spend more than 45 days with the NBA affiliate, primarily playing in the G League.”
