The Knicks are converting Jacob Toppin and Charlie Brown Jr. to two-way contracts, SNY’s Ian Begley has confirmed.

Toppin, the brother of former Knicks first-round pick Obi Toppin, impressed head coach Tom Thibodeau with his defensive activity during the preseason, according to Begley.

The 23-year-old joined the organization as an undrafted player out of Kentucky shortly before the Knicks dealt his older brother to the Indiana Pacers. Toppin logged 10 minutes in the preseason, scoring four points with two rebounds and two blocks.

The six-foot-nine forward averaged 12.4 points and 6.8 rebounds in his senior year with the Wildcats, his third season in Kentucky after beginning his collegiate career at Rhode Island.

Brown Jr., a 26-year-old shooting guard, appeared in all four of the Knicks’ preseason contests logging 11 total minutes and scoring three points with two rebounds and two assists.

After going undrafted out of St. Joseph’s in 2019, Brown Jr. has been a part of several organizations on two-way and short-term deals appearing in games with Atlanta, Oklahoma City, Dallas and Philadelphia.

Both players will now be on one-year deals, per The Athletic’s Fred Katz.

The Knicks had previously converted Dylan Windler’s deal to a two-way contract, which fills their three spots for two-way players on the roster. They have three remaining slots on the roster, with Daquan Jeffries and Ryan Arcidiacono still on the roster, but without deals.
