Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported Monday that Breein Tyree and Paul Eboua, who both went undrafted last week, have signed with the Miami Heat to compete for one of their two-way roster spots. Gabe Vincent already has the team’s other two-way contract.
Miami Heat adds intriguing international prospect and a two-time SEC All-Conference guard: https://t.co/N9HfYo4xaC— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) November 23, 2020
This year, players on two-way contracts can play in up to 50 of each team’s 72 regular season games. They spend the rest of their time in the G League.
Tyree played all four years of college basketball at Mississippi and shot 36 percent on 3-pointers his senior year. Eboua played professional basketball in Italy last year after being born and raised in Cameroon. He only started playing basketball at 14 years old.
Standing 6-foot-8, Eboua has a 7-foot, 3-inch wingspan. Jackson reported that Heat executive Chet Kammerer saw Eboua work out in Santa Barbara, California before the NBA Draft and “apparently left impressed.”

Two years ago, Kammerer saw Duncan Robinson put together a superb shooting performance before the 2018 NBA Draft. He then called Heat general manager Andy Elisburg, and the Heat signed Robinson to a two-way contract.
Has Kammerer found another gem? We’ll find out.
