Homesley, who went undrafted out of Liberty in 2020, joined the Wizards for training camp last fall but was waived before the regular season began. He later suited up for the Erie BayHawks (the G League team the Wizards shared with New Orleans in 2020/21) and appeared in 15 NBAGL games (24.9 MPG), averaging 9.3 PPG, 4.1 RPG, and 2.3 APG.
The Wizards liked what they saw from Homesley in the preseason and in the G League enough to sign him to a multiyear contract during the last week of the 2020/21 season. That was a four-year contract, but the last three years – including ’21/22 – were non-guaranteed, allowing Washington to cut him without incurring a cap hit.
Releasing Homesley doesn’t necessarily mean he’s no longer in the Wizards’ plans. He was listed on the team’s Las Vegas Summer League roster and could be a candidate to return to the club on a new Exhibit 10 deal or two-way contract. For now though, he’s on waivers — he’ll become a free agent this weekend if he goes unclaimed.
