Former Pleasant Grove star CJ Wilcox reportedly agrees to two-way contract with Portland Trail Blazers

Former Pleasant Grove star CJ Wilcox has reportedly found a new home in the NBA.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted Tuesday night that Wilcox has agreed to a two-way contract with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Under the agreement, which is a new type of contract in the NBA this season, the 6-foot-5, 195-pound Wilcox will spend most of his time in the G League (formerly the D-League), but can spend up to 45 days of the season with the Blazers.

Where Wilcox will play in the G League is unknown, as Portland is one of just a handful of NBA teams remaining that do not have an affiliate.

The 28th pick of the 2014 NBA draft by the L.A. Clippers after a four-year career at Washington, Wilcox has bounced between the association and the development league. He’s appeared in 66 games total in the NBA for the Clippers and Orlando Magic, averaging two points in 5.7 minutes per contest.

He has suited up for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Bakersfield Jam, Canton Charge and Erie BayHawks of the development league in between NBA stints.

As a senior at Pleasant Grove during the 2008-09 season, Wilcox averaged 23.8 points per game. His No. 23 was retired by the Vikings in 2016.
