MARCH 3: Bouyea’s 10-day contract with the Wizards is now official, the team announced today in a press release. It’ll run through March 12, making Bouyea eligible for Washington’s next six games.
MARCH 2: The Wizards are set to sign free agent point guard Jamaree Bouyea, currently with the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBAGL, to a 10-day deal, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).
The 6’2″ rookie went undrafted in 2022 following a five-year NCAA career with San Francisco. This will mark his second 10-day contract of the 2022/23 season so far, after he initially agreed to a 10-day deal with the Heat last month.
In four appearances with Miami, Bouyea received limited run, logging 16.3 minutes per night. He averaged 3.8 points per game on .462/.400/500 shooting splits to go along with 1.3 RPG, 1.0 APG and 1.0 SPG. The Heat did not bring him aboard for a second 10-day agreement.
Across 18 regular season games with the Skyforce, Bouyea has averaged 18.9 PPG on .524/.313/.705 shooting splits. He’s also chipping in 6.0 APG, 5.2 RPG, 1.2 SPG and 0.9 BPG.
Bouyea will be the 15th player on Washington’s current standard roster, as currently comprised. The 30-32 Wizards occupy the No. 10 seed in the East, and have been making moves around the fringes of their roster in recent days. To wit, 7’1″ center Jay Huff was added on a two-way deal earlier today.
