SEPTEMBER 29: Dotson did indeed sign an Exhibit 10 deal, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who tweets that Dotson is “expected to compete” for the Wizards’ open two-way slot.
SEPTEMBER 28: The Wizards have signed free agent guard Devon Dotson and waived guard Davion Mintz, according to their official website and the NBA transaction log at RealGM.com.
Terms of Dotson’s deal aren’t yet known, but it seems highly likely to be an Exhibit 10 contract, which could be converted into a two-way pact before the season or would entitle Dotson to a bonus worth up to $50K if he’s waived and then spends at least 60 days with the Capital City Go-Go, the Wizards’ G League affiliate.
Dotson, 23, went undrafted out of Kansas in 2020 and spent his first season-and-a-half in the NBA occupying one of the Bulls’ two-way slots before being waived in January. He saw extremely limited action in 22 total NBA games, logging just 135 overall minutes, but he has played well in the G League.
In 2021/22, Dotson averaged 21.0 PPG, 6.9 APG, 4.8 RPG, and 2.2 SPG in 25 games (33.4 MPG) for the Windy City Bulls, though he made just 24.5% of 4.1 three-point attempts per game. He suited up for the Wizards’ Summer League team in Las Vegas this July.
Mintz, meanwhile, is an undrafted rookie who signed with the Wizards after finishing his college career at Kentucky. Washington now controls his G League rights, so he’s a good bet to resurface with the Go-Go when the NBAGL season begins.
The Wizards still have a full 20-man training camp roster, with 15 players on guaranteed standard contracts, one on a two-way deal, and four on Exhibit 10 contracts.
