Wizards To Sign Devon Dotson To Two-Way Contract; Waive Jordan Schakel

Nov 20, 2022 3:12 PM

The Washington Wizards are set to sign guard Devon Dotson to a Two-Way contract. The Wizards will waive Jordan Schakel from his Two-Way deal to create the room for Dotson.

Dotson went to training camp with the Wizards before being waived at the end of the preseason. Dotson then joined Washington's G League affiliate the Capital City Go-Go. In seven games with the Go-Go, Dotson has averaged 12.1 points, 6.9 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game.

The Wizards have an immediate need of additional point guard depth, necessitating the signing of Dotson. Monte Morris and Delon Wright are both out with injuries, while Two-Way point guard Jordan Goodwin was banged up in Washington's last game.

Heat To Waive Dru Smith, Sign Orlando Robinson

Nov 13, 2022 12:12 PM

The Miami Heat are planning to waive Two-Way guard Dru Smith. Miami will then sign center Orlando Robinson to a Two-Way deal.

Part of the reason for the roster change for the Heat is a long-term injury to Omer Yurtseven. Robinson will give Miami more depth at the center position while Yurtseven is out.

Smith appeared in just one NBA game for the Heat. He's also only appeared in one G League game for the Sioux Falls Skyforce this season, as Miami has kept their Two-Way players with the NBA club due to injuries. Smith is likely to stay in the organization by joining the Skyforce upon clearing waivers.

Robinson was waived by the Heat towards the end of the preseason. In four games with the Skyforce this season the 7-footer has averaged 20 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and a block per game.
