Wizards Sign, Waive Dikembe Dixson

9:10pm: Dixson has been waived, as our own JD Shaw relays (Twitter link).

3:52pm: The Wizards are expected to waive Dixson before their preseason game on Friday, tweets Katz. The team plans on him starting the season with the Go-Go.

3:09pm: The Wizards are back up to 20 players, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic, who reports (via Twitter) that the club has signed forward Dikembe Dixson to an Exhibit 10 contract.

Dixson, who went undrafted out of UIC in 2018, started his professional career in Lebanon before returning stateside. He appeared in 12 G League games in 2018/19, averaging 5.3 PPG and 1.3 RPG in just 9.4 minutes per contest for the Windy City Bulls and Capital City Go-Go.

The Wizards’ G League affiliate holds Dixson’s returning rights and appears set to bring him back for the coming season. By signing an Exhibit 10 deal with Washington, he’ll be eligible for a bonus worth up to $50K if he spends at least 60 days with the Go-Go.

The Wizards made three cuts on Wednesday, but have already filled those three roster spots by signing Dixson, Jalen Jones, and Anzejs Pasecniks.

  1. The most Wizards fa thing to do. Cut Justin Anderson your teams best defender who plays SF, a position you desperately need to fill cause injuries. Then you sign Beal to an extension some how.. then you sign some nobody to a 10 daybreak to cut him not even an hour later.

      • Bro that’s what I said “then they sign some nobody to a 10 day contract and cut him not even an hour later”
