Former Seton Hall wing Jared Rhoden is signing a Two-Way Contract with the Detroit Pistons, league sources confirmed.

The news was first reported by The Athletic.

The 6-foot-6 Rhoden has been playing for the College Park Skyhawks, the Atlanta Hawks NBA G League affiliate. He was the No. 4 overall pick in the G League Draft after beginning training camp with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Rhoden was in Las Vegas last week at the G League Winter Showcase, where he and his teammates played in front of executives from all 30 NBA teams. On Wednesday, Rhoden recorded his second career double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds in a loss to the South Bay Lakers. On Monday, he went for 17 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists in a loss. For the season he’s averaging 13.9 points and 6.5 rebounds, and leads the G League in 3-point shooting percentage (51.4%).

Want to bet on College Basketball? Asked what he needs to do to make an NBA team, Rhoden said, “I think the best thing for me is just continuing to show my consistency and being efficient. I’m not playing the most minutes on the team, but when I do get the opportunity I’m trying to be efficient and consistent in everything I do, whether it’s shooting the 3-ball or defending. For me, I’m just trying to show that I can do that every night on a consistent basis.

“My goal is to show that I can be a really good role player in the NBA and that I can play with some star players.”

Steve Gansey, the coach of the Skyhawks, also coached Rhoden in the NBA G League Elite Camp in May, where Rhoden excelled and earned an invite to the main NBA Draft Combine.

“The kid plays so hard, I love his motor, the energy and effort that he brings” Gansey said by phone. “He’s had some games where he’s really helped us win so far, and his ability to rebound, show his athleticism, his length, sit down and guard. He’s gotta continue to learn the NBA game, different rotations, pick-and-roll coverages.

“One thing he’s really improved is extending his 3-point range, especially from being a college player to the next step. It’s different, a couple steps back, but he’s been doing a helluva job.”
