RealGM’s Smith: Nets will likely sign Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to standard deal

In a series of tweets Sunday afternoon, RealGM’s Keith Smith reports that Nets two-way player Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will likely sign a standard NBA contract this week ... and he suggested that might not be the end of the Nets dealings this week.

Once a two-player like TLC spends 45 days —not games— with the parent club, the team must either give the player a standard deal or send him back to the G League for good. There’s no public accounting of days but in recent games, both Sarah Kustok and Ian Eagle have suggested that Luwawu-Cabarrot is nearing the limit.

There’s two other deadlines approaching this week. Justin Anderson’s 10-day is coming to an end mid-week and if the Nets want to replace Luwawu-Cabarrot with another two-way, they’ll have to do it by Wednesday. That’s the deadline for signing two-way deals. (The Nets other two-way is recently signed Chris Chiozza, a 5’11” point guard. In theory, Brooklyn can waive him before Wednesday.)

If the Nets are permitted to sign TLC to a 10-day, as Smith tweeted, they would presumably have the option to sign him to a second 10-day deal as well. That would keep him with the team through the first few days of February. The NBA trade deadline is February 6.
