The Wizards‘ deal with former Texas A&M guard Quenton Jackson, which we first reported in June, is now official. Jackson signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Wizards, who now have 18 players under contract.
Jackson earned All-SEC Second Team honors in his final college season in 2021/22, averaging 14.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 2.0 APG, and 1.8 SPG in 40 games (26.4 MPG) for the Aggies. He posted a solid shooting line of .490/.346/.828, but went undrafted in June before quickly reaching a deal with Washington.
Jackson suited up for the Wizards’ Summer League team in Las Vegas in July, averaging 9.3 points in just 13.2 minutes per contest in four appearances.
Given that Washington already has 15 players on guaranteed standard contracts, there’s no clear path for Jackson to earn a regular season roster spot, but one of the club’s two-way slots remains available (Jordan Schakel occupies the other). It’s possible Jackson will be a candidate to fill that opening.
Exhibit 10 contracts can be converted into two-way deals. They also make players eligible for bonuses worth up to $50K if they’re waived and then spend at least 60 days with their team’s G League affiliate. Makur Maker is the other Wizard currently on an Exhibit 10 contract, while Davion Mintz is expected to sign one as well.
