That's a fine salary one year out of college.

Is that the biggest NBA player contract for a W&M grad?

Without a doubt. Marcus was a 2nd round pick, but the Celtics renounced his draft rights before signing a contract. He signed a respectable 10 day contract with the Cavs 3 years later for $46K according to Sporttrac

Thornton's a good example of how Knight is potentially much better off undrafted. As Thornton was drafted, the Celtics never had to sign him to a real contract as they held his rights regardless. They stashed him overseas in Australia, but he played poorly there and Boston lost interest. As a free agent, the Hawks actually had to give Knight a real contract to get him.

Likely not much of a pathway to getting minutes with Atlanta given their logjam of young talent in their frontcourt, but a good opportunity to play in the G League and show what he can do against pro talent.

Is that a guaranteed contract? Not sure of the two-way rules

Almost certainly not fully guaranteed. It's possible some part of it is.

Wikipedia has an interesting (and possibly accurate) discussion of two-way contracts: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two-way_contract

He'll end up getting most of it -- value does fluctuate between when he's in the G-league and the NBA. But given covid rules changes for this year I'd imagine he'll spend a good amount of time up with the big boys.
