Sixers officially sign second-round pick Marial Shayok to two-way contract

The Sixers have officially signed second-round pick Marial Shayok to a two-way contract, the team announced in a press release.

In a statement, 76ers general manager Elton Brand calls Shayok, a former Iowa State wing, a “natural-born scorer who is committed to being a tough defender.”

The 54th overall pick in the draft, Shayok spent his final college season at Iowa State, where he got a chance to take on a starring role after three years at Virginia. In his senior year, the 6-foot-6 Canadian averaged 18.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists, with a shooting line of .496/.386/.878, earning First Team All-Big 12 honors.

Philadelphia signed
Norvel Pelle to a two-way contract on Tuesday, so Pelle and Shayok appear poised to open next season as the club’s two-way players. They figure to split time between the NBA club and the Delaware Blue Coats, the Sixers’ G League affiliate.
