The Washington Wizards have signed Larry Owens, the team announced in a press release. Details of his contract are not yet known, but he will soon be in camp as the 16th member.
Owens was one of four Wizards players who had been operating on the qualifying offer at the beginning of the summer. The Wizards pulled the qualifying offer from Othyus Jeffers to make room under the cap for the Ronny Turiaf trade. The statuses of Nick Young and Hamady Ndiaye remain up in the air.
Here's the full press release.

The training camp roster now stands at 16 players.
