Earlier this month, the Washington Wizards announced that CJ Miles would be out indefinitely due to a wrist injury. They also applied for an exception soon after, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic DC.

Earlier Tuesday, the Wizards were granted a $4.37 million trade exception according to Katz.

The Wizards can use this exception to sign a player or trade for a player who makes up to this amount. However, exceptions cannot be combined to sign a player who makes a higher salary.
Miles was averaging 6.4 points and 1.2 rebounds per game for the Wizards in the 2019-20 NBA season.
