The Washington Wizards may not have made a pick in the 2016 Draft, but they’re adding another player from the roster onto their squad, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical:
Sources: Danuel House, undrafted out of Texas A & M, agrees to a two-year deal with Wizards. House has played well for Wiz in Summer League.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) July 15, 2016
House has had a strong out in Las Vegas for the Wizards, averaging 12.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 1.3 assists in 19.3 minutes of action per game while shooting 45.0 percent from beyond the arc. In his most recent outing, he scored 15 points in 16 minutes to help the Wizards mount a comeback to take down the Atlanta Hawks.
We don’t know the exacts of how much of House’s salary is guaranteed, but J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic is reporting it’s similar to the partially guaranteed deals the Wizards gave to Sheldon McClellan and Daniel Ochefu, which ensure they’ll be invited to training camp and get a chance to compete for a roster spot.
House still has a long way to go before he can ensure he’s on the roster for next season, but if nothing else it’s clear Washington is impressed by what they’ve seen and want to give him a chance to earn a spot.
