Wizards Waive Ex-Liberty Guard Caleb Homesley

The Wizards have waived second-year shooting guard Caleb Homesley, according to Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors.Caleb Homesley

Homesley, 24, is 6-foot-6 and signed a four-year deal with the Wizards after playig mostly for the Erie BayHawks, the G League affiliate they shared with the Pelicans. (They now run the College Park Skyhawks.)

But as Adams noted, the final three years of Homesley’s contract were nonguaranteed.

He averaged 9.3 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15 games with the BayHawks last season. He went udrafted out of Liberty in 2020, signing with the Wizards for training camp but being released before the season.

“Releasing Homesley doesn’t necessarily mean he’s no longer in the Wizards’ plans. He was listed on the team’s Las Vegas Summer League roster and could be a candidate to return to the club on a new Exhibit 10 deal or two-way contract,” Adams wrote.

Washington has undergone quite a facelift this offseason, trading guard Russell Westbrook to the Lakers, while landing guard Spencer Dinwiddie, small forward Kyle Kuzma, shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, point guard Aaron Holiday and forward/center Montrezl Harrell.

They also selected Gonzaga guard/forward Corey Kispert with the No. 15 overall draft pick, and changed coaches from Scott Brooks to Wes Unseld Jr.
