Two-Way Contract Player of the Year: Charles Bassey

It happened in bunches but Bassey looks like the kind of defensive stopper that the Spurs desperately need right now. He had potential coming out of Western Kentucky but it's awesome to finally see him have an opportunity to realize it. But there's something here. The fact the Spurs were able to pick him up out of the scrap bin makes this even better. - Ethan Farina

It’s a shame that Bassey was injured toward the end of the season as it seemed like he was just starting to get comfortable, but he still did enough for me to show why the Spurs gave him such a lengthy contract. If he can stay healthy, Bassey is going to be a very solid backup center at the very least. And if he begins shooting the ball more like he did when he played for Western Kentucky, he could be something even more than that. - Roberto Araiza

The Spurs have done a fantastic job with scouting their two-way players, but down the stretch of the season, no two-way player had more of an impact than Julian Champagnie. After solid stints with the Delaware Blue Coats and Austin Spurs in the G-League, Champagnie came into the Spurs roster with only 15 games left in the season. But in those 15 games, Champagnie showed off great scoring ability off of the bench, including a 26-point performance against Sacramento (The most points ever by a two-way player in league history). It's a small sample size, but he's been efficient, has had great playmaking, and is dangerous on backdoor cuts. An all-around fun player to watch that the Spurs need to bring back next season. - Christian Dahms
