Prior to the start of free agency in early August, the Jazz issued a qualifying offer to Forrest and power forward Jarrell Brantley, their other two-way player. “Forrest’s was for another two-way deal, so it’s possible he just accepted that QO rather than negotiating a new two-way agreement,” Adams noted.

Forrest, of course, will be aiming for playing time in a vetera Utah backcourt that also includes the likes of Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conley Jr. and Jordan Clarkson, as well as rookie Jared Butler.

Players on two-way contracts are eligible to appear in up to 50 NBA games. The majority of their time ios generally spent in the G League.
