Hicks, 23, won a National Championship last season at North Carolina and appeared in another the year before. He arrived in Chapel Hill as a McDonald’s All-American, but never took off as a superstar prospect.
The two-way contract allows him to split time between New York and Westchester (G-league). By rule, any player on a two-way contract can spend up to 45 days in the NBA. It allows teams to expand their roster to 17 players without having salary count against the cap.
