EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers have signed summer league standout Alex Caruso to a two-way contract.

The Lakers announced the deal Thursday.

Caruso spent last season with Oklahoma City’s G League affiliate after going undrafted out of Texas A&M.; After joining the Lakers for summer league play, the guard cemented his impressive performance Monday by getting 18 points and nine assists against Sacramento.

Two-way contracts are new to the NBA for the upcoming season. They allow a player to spend up to 45 days on an NBA roster while also playing in the G League.

The Lakers waived guard David Nwaba on Wednesday to create salary cap room for guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, whose signing hasn’t been officially announced. Nwaba must clear waivers before the Lakers can re-sign him.
