The Washington Wizards announced on Wednesday they have assigned Chris McCullough to the Wisconsin Herd of the G-League and have released forward Mike Young.
McCullough, the third-year player out of Syracuse, has played in 12 games so far this season averaging 3.0 points and 1.7 rebounds per game. His only meaningful minutes came in a game against the 76ers in late November in which he had 4 points and 4 rebounds in 17 minutes of play.
He will have more of an opportunity to play extended minutes while still working on his overall game with the Herd, the Bucks’ G-League affiliate. According to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, Young will only be with the team for a few games:

Mike Young was signed to a two-way contract on by the Wizards prior to Summer League and played with both Northern Arizona and Delaware in the G-League this season. Washington now has the option to sign another player with their open two-way roster spot, who can spend up to 45 days with Wizards and still be under team control the rest of the season in the G-League.
