WASHINGTON, D.C. – Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has signed rookie free agent Devin Robinson to a two-way contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Robinson spent three seasons at Florida before declaring for the NBA Draft. As a junior, the 6-8, 200-pound forward averaged 11.1 points and a team-leading 6.1 rebounds, while shooting .475 from the field and .391 from three-point range, helping Florida reach the Elite Eight for the first time since 2014. For his career, he averaged 8.9 points and 4.9 rebounds, while appearing in every game (105) for the Gators.
The 2017-18 season will mark the first year NBA two-way contracts will be implemented. NBA teams are allowed to have up to two players under two-way contracts who will spend the bulk of the season in the NBA G-League and not more than 45 days with their NBA team. Two-way players are paid a corresponding daily amount based on the number of days they play in each league. Only players with four-or-fewer years of NBA experience are able to sign two-way contracts, which can be for either one or two seasons.
Robinson is a member of the Wizards’ 2017 Las Vegas Summer League team, where he is currently averaging 3.3 points, 3. 8 rebounds and 1.0 block in four games of action.
The Wizards conclude Summer League play when they face the Timberwolves on Friday, July 14, at 4:30 p.m. ET.
