Former Louisville Cardinal and Louisville native Dwayne Sutton has inked his first contract as a professional basketball player.
Yahoo Sports’ NBA Insider, Chris Haynes, reports that Sutton has signed a free agent contract with the Golden State Warriors.

Sutton didn’t hear his name called in last week’s NBA Draft and didn’t generate a lot of buzz in the pre-draft process.
Those familiar with Dwayne Sutton’s story are well aware that this isn’t the first time he’s had to go under the radar. It’s worked out pretty well for him thus far.
Sutton’s deal with Golden State is reportedly a two-way contract.
Two-way contracts are still a relatively new thing in the NBA. A few years ago the league created two extra roster spots for each NBA teams. These positions require players to rotate between the G League and the team they’ve signed with. NBA players on two-way contracts can earn up to $204,000 instead of the $35,000 G League salary.<
