Free agent guard Ryan Rollins has been accused of repeatedly shoplifting from a Target store in Virginia, as relayed by Josh Robbins of The Athletic.Ryan Rollins

Rollins, 21, was acquired this past summer as part of the trade that delivered guard Jordan Poole to Washington and sent point guard Chris Paul to Golden State.

Police said Rollins stole small household items on seven occasions between September and November, per Robbins. All of those alleged incidents took place when he was on the Wizards’ roster.

“We just recently learned of the charges against Ryan,” Wizards president of basketball operations Michael Winger said, via Robbins. “We cannot comment on that matter, or the basis for our roster decisions.

“We do take our role very seriously as citizens of the DMV, representatives of our fans and a team our community can be proud of. These are expectations, not aspirations. We’re eager to move forward with our team as constituted and pursue excellence on and off the court.”

Originally selected by the Hawks with the No. 44 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, Rollins spent his rookie season with the Warriors, appearing in 12 games after signing a multiyear contract.

The former Toledo star has appeared in 10 games with the Wizards and also spent plenty of time with the Capital City Go-Go of the G League.

The Wizards recently signed shooting guard Hamidou Diallo to a 10-day contract.
