After finishing the 2020/21 season on the Wizards’ 15-man roster, free agent wing Caleb Homesley will head overseas for the ’21/22 campaign, having agreed to join the Hamburg Towers. The German club announced the deal on its website.
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 regular season. That was a four-year contract, but the last three years – including ’21/22 – were non-guaranteed, allowing Washington to cut the 24-year-old last month without incurring a cap hit.
Homesley’s new team plays in the BBL, Germany’s top league. The club put up a 21-13 record in 2020/21, but was swept in the first round of the postseason by Alba Berlin. Homesley will be looking to help the team make a deeper playoff run in 2022.
