The Wizards are reportedly G-League veteran Carrick Felix to a training camp deal, according to Chris Reichert of 2Ways10Days.
Felix was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 33rd overall pick in the 2013 draft. He only played seven games with the team his rookie season, and spent the rest of his time with the Cavaliers’ developmental team in Canton. Then, he was dealt to Utah that following summer as part of a cap-clearing move so Cleveland could re-tool their roster around LeBron James.
Felix was waived by the Jazz before he played a regular season game, and he’s been bouncing around the G-League ever since. Last season, he started 21 games with the Long Island Nets, averaging 9.0 points and 3.9 rebounds per game. He also played on the Mavericks’ Summer League team in Las Vegas, where he averaged 6.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 16.7 minutes of action per game.
As of now, all 15 of the team’s roster spots are full, so he’d need to beat out one of the two players on unguaranteed deals (Sheldon Mac or Daniel Ochefu). Considering he fills a similar role to Mac, it’s more likely he’d be battling him for a spot. That said, it’s hard to see Felix making the team over Sheldon Mac, considering what the team has invested in him the past two seasons, but if nothing else, Felix will give the team some extra depth during training camp and the preseason.
