The Wizards will be using their second two-way spot on the roster to sign Devin Robinson, according to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post. Robinson will join Michael Young as the first players to sign with Washington on the new type of deal allowed in the NBA’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Robinson went undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft and was quickly scooped up by the Wizards for Summer League. His numbers in Las Vegas haven’t been great - he’s 3-16 from the field and has almost as many fouls (11) as points (13) in limited minutes - but there’s clearly some athletic potential there, as well as shooting range. Last season at Florida he shot 39.1 percent from deep while averaging three attempts per game.
As a two-way player, Robinson will be allowed to play up to 45 days during the regular season with the Wizards, and will spend the rest of the season in the G-League. When he’s in the G-League, he will be assigned to a team using the flexible assignment system, since the Wizards will not have their own affiliate in place until the 2018-19 season. Even though Robinson will play on another team’s affiliate in the G-League, that team will not be able to promote Robinson to their full-time squad.
With the Robinson signing in place, all 17 roster spots (15 for regular players and 2 for two-ways) have now been claimed. The only way Washington can add a new player to the roster is to unload a player by waiving them or making a trade where they send out more players than they bring back.
