Wizards Sign Tarik Phillip, Jordan McRae

The Wizards have signed Tarik Phillip, according to The Athletic’s Fred Katz (Twitter link). Hoops Rumors’ own JD Shaw (Twitter link) has confirmed the report.

The team also promoted and extended two-way player Jordan McRae, as Candace Buckner of The Washington Post tweets. His new standard NBA contract is non-guaranteed for next season.

McRae excelled in the G League this season, splitting time between the Capital City Go-Go and the Wizards and earning first-team All-NBAGL honors. Phillip also shined in the G League this season, playing for the Memphis Hustle, the Grizzlies’ G League affiliate.

Washington’s final game is tonight against the Celtics, meaning today is the last day the team can sign a player. The franchise entered the day with 13 traditional players under contract in addition to its pair of two-way deals. Those figures are now 15 and one, respectively.

    I don’t know if “extending” is the correct terminology for McRae, as he was on a two-way contract. Sounds like they just agreed to a new two-year, veteran’s minimum contract with him.
