Wizards Sign Devon Dotson, Waive Jules Bernard

The Wizards have signed guard Devon Dotson to an Exhibit 10 contract, the team announced (via Twitter).

To make room on the 21-man preseason roster, Washington waived Jules Bernard, who was also signed to an Exhibit 10 deal. The Wizards’ roster remains full after the moves.

Dotson, 24, has appeared in 28 games over three seasons with the Bulls and Wizards, holding modest averages of 2.0 PPG and 1.1 APG in 6.7 MPG. All of those appearances came while he was on two-way contracts.

Last season, the former Kansas star spent a couple of months on a two-way deal with Washington, having been waived in January. While he only appeared in six games for the Wizards in 2022/23, he had a solid regular season showing for their NBA G League affiliate, the Capital City Go-Go, averaging 14.8 PPG, 6.1 APG, 4.4 RPG and 1.2 SPG on .529/.392/.814 shooting in 29 games (31.7 MPG).

Exhibit 10 deals can be converted into two-way deals, and the Wizards have one two-way slot open. If he doesn’t receive a promotion and instead is waived before ’23/24 begins, Dotson would be eligible for a bonus worth up to $75K if he spends at least 60 days with the Go-Go.
