AP source: NBA set to remove restriction on 2-way deals

MIAMI (AP) — The NBA has moved closer to a deal where players on two-way contracts would be eligible to appear on the active roster for as many games as their teams would like this season. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press about the deal. The person said the proposal to lift what was a 50-game limit on the active roster for two-way players got overwhelming support Tuesday and is likely to be passed by the NBA’s board of governors. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because that final approval is pending. The approval is expected later this month.
