Wizards Sign Johnathan Williams To Two-Way Contract

Jan 13, 2020 11:21 AM

The Washington Wizards have signed forward Johnathan Williams to a two-way contract. Williams and Garrison Mathews are now Washington’s two-way players on the roster after center Anzejs Pasecniks was signed to a multi-year contract with the Wizards earlier today. 

“Johnathan has shown the ability to impact the game on both ends of the court during his time with us and during his previous NBA experience,” said Wizards General Manager Tommy Sheppard.  “His experience playing for Coach Few at Gonzaga prepared him to be a professional both on and off the court and we look forward to his continued development within our program.”

Williams was originally signed by the Wizards on Dec. 26, averaging 5.5 points and 6.3 rebounds in six games (four starts). He was waived on Jan. 4 following the team’s win over Denver (in which he tallied 12 points and eight rebounds) after he had reached the 10-day limit on the team’s injury hardship exception. 

On his previous two-way deal with the Los Angeles Lakers last season, Williams averaged 6.5 points and 4.1 rebounds in 24 games.  He also appeared in 26 games for the South Bay Lakers, where he posted averages of 15.2 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.

The Washington Wizards have signed Jordan McRae to a standard NBA contract. 

Originally signed to a two-way contact prior to the season, McRae has averaged 5.9 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 27 games for the Wizards and was named to the 2018-19 All-NBA G League First Team for his play with the Capital City Go-Go, Washington’s G League affiliate.

In 31 games with the Go-Go this season, McRae led the NBA G League in scoring at 30.4 points per game, becoming just the second qualified player to average over 30 points per game over the last 12 seasons in the league. He scored in double-figures in all 31 of his appearances (including a 54-point game), while also leading the league in 40-point (six) and 30-point (19) outings. McRae broke Antonio Blakeney’s record for consecutive 30-point games with a 10-game streak from January 15 to March 2 – a stretch where he averaged 37.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game. In his 27 games with the Wizards, McRae scored in double figures seven times and scored at least 20 points twice, including a season-high 21 on March 27 at Phoenix.
