Former N.C. State guard Dereon Seabron on Friday signed a two-way contract with the New Orleans Pelicans ahead of the 2022-23 season, the team announced.

Seabron was named the Most Improved Player in the ACC last season after averaging 17.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals. He led the Wolfpack in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals, becoming one of four Division I players to lead his team in all four categories.

The 22-year-old went undrafted in June and played with the Pelicans in the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 8.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists in five games. He capped off his run with his best game: 19 points, eight points and three assists on July 17.

Seabron will split his time between New Orleans and the Birmingham Squadron in the NBA G League. He is eligible to spend no more than 50 games in the NBA and will earn a flat salary equal to 50% of the minimum salary applicable to a player with zero years of service.
