On Saturday night, the Washington Wizards waived Johnathan Williams who was originally signed on an injury hardship. He played six games for Washington, starting most of them where he averaged 5.5 points and 6.3 rebounds.
With Williams now gone, it’s likely that Moritz Wagner and/or Thomas Bryant is getting closer to returning. But for now, if Williams remains in America and doesn’t return to Maccabi Rishon LeZion in Israel, his G League rights are held by the South Bay Lakers, not the Capital City Go-Go, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic.
Williams has to clear waivers. The funky thing about the NBA and G League is that the Wizards actually don’t have his G League rights. The South Bay Lakers do. https://t.co/2wGQLsG7iM— Fred Katz (@FredKatz) January 5, 2020
