Wizards Sign Jules Bernard, Waive Dejan Vasiljevic

The Wizards have signed Jules Bernard to an Exhibit 10 contract and placed Dejan Vasiljevic on waivers, the team tweets.

Bernard went undrafted in 2022 out of UCLA. He spent most of last season with the Wizards’ NBA G League affiliate, the Capital City Go-Go. He averaged 15.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 32 G League games.

The 6’6” swingman appeared in four games for Washington’s Summer League team in July. He had a brief stint with the Pistons last year before getting waived during training camp.

Vasiljevic agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract two weeks ago. The former Miami Hurricanes guard has played for the Sydney Kings of Australia’s NBL since 2020 after going undrafted by NBA clubs.

In 36 games last season, Vasiljevic averaged 13.4 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. The 26-year-old opted out of his contract with the Australian club following the season.

If he clears waivers and joins the Wizards’ G League team for 60 days, he’ll be eligible for a bonus up to $75K.
