Rockets sign Division II star Trevor Hudgins to two-way contract




 

Trevor Hudgins, an undrafted guard from Northwest Missouri State in Division II, signed a two-way contract with the Houston Rockets, the team announced.

He is the first player from the program to sign an NBA contract.

Hudgins was named the Division II Player of the Year after averaging 23 points, 4.3 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 39 games last season as a senior. Behind Hudgins, the Bearcats won their third consecutive national championship.

The 23-year-old leaves as the all-time scoring leader (2,829) in program history. He also has the record for most career 3-pointers (435), 3-pointers in a season (168) and points scored in a season (897) among other accomplishments.

Hudgins will split his time between Houston and the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the NBA G League. He is eligible to spend no more than 50 games in the NBA and will earn a flat salary equal to 50% of the minimum salary applicable to a player with zero years of service.

The news of the pact between Hudgins and the Rockets was first reported on draft night and the team made it official ahead of the Las Vegas Summer League. He is expected to participate as the team begins play on July 7.
