The Wizards have made a minor change to their roster, announcing today (via Twitter) that they’ve signed forward Michael Foster Jr. to an Exhibit 10 contract. Rookie guard Chase Audige, who was also on an Exhibit 10 deal, was waived to open up a spot on the 21-man roster.
Foster went undrafted a year ago after playing for the G League Ignite in 2021/22. He caught on with the Sixers and spent a few weeks at the start of the regular season on a two-way contract with the team, making his NBA debut during that time. However, he was waived last November and spent the rest of the season with the Delaware Blue Coats, Philadelphia’s G League affiliate.
Foster, 20, averaged 13.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in 24.3 minutes per contest in 41 appearances last season for the Blue Coats, posting a shooting line of .519/.254/.693. He continued to play a rotation role for the club en route to its NBAGL championship in the spring.
As we noted earlier today, the Blue Coats traded Foster’s returning rights to the Capital City Go-Go, so he’ll now be in line to play for the Wizards’ G League affiliate if he’s waived and heads to the NBAGL. In that scenario, Foster would be eligible to earn an Exhibit 10 bonus worth up to $75K as long as he spends at least 60 days with the Go-Go.
