Wizards Sign Davion Mintz To Exhibit 10 Contract

The Wizards have officially signed undrafted rookie guard Davion Mintz, according to RealGM’s NBA transaction log. We reported shortly after the draft in June that Mintz had agreed to an Exhibit 10 deal with Washington.

Mintz, who finished his college career at Kentucky, spent the last two years with the Wildcats after transferring from Creighton. In those two seasons, he averaged 9.8 PPG, 2.6 RPG, and 2.4 APG with a .362 3PT% in 56 games (27.4 MPG).

As is the case with Quenton Jackson – another newly-signed Wizard who received an Exhibit 10 contract after playing for the team’s Summer League squad – Mintz is a long shot to earn a spot on Washington’s 15-man regular season roster. However, his new deal suggests the Wizards are interested in keeping him in the organization for developmental purposes.

If Mintz doesn’t have his contract converted into a two-way deal, he’ll likely end up becoming an affiliate player for the Capital City Go-Go, the Wizards’ G League team. The Exhibit 10 language in Mintz’s contract makes him eligible for a bonus worth up to $50K if he spends at least 60 days with the Go-Go.

Washington now has 19 players officially under contract — 15 on standard guaranteed deals, one on a two-way pact, and three on Exhibit 10 contracts. The club has room for one more player on its 20-man training camp roster.
