The Washington Wizards today 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.

Also today, the team waived forward CJ Miles, who is dealing with a long-term injury.

Pasecniks, a 7-1 center from Latvia, is currently averaging 8.2 points and 6.2 rebounds per game while shooting .512 from the field in 13 games for the Wizards after signing a two-way deal with the team on Dec. 18. He scored a career-high 17 points at Detroit (12/16) and has recorded two games with at least 10 rebounds with the Wizards.

“AP has worked tremendously hard with our coaching staff during his time in summer league, with the Go-Go and with the Wizards and his development has shown great progress,” said Wizards General Manager Tommy Sheppard. “He is following the path set by Jordan McRae last season and provides another example of our vision for developing players within our own system and the benefit of sharing our facility with the Go-Go.”

Pasecniks appeared in 12 games (two starts) with the Capital City Go-Go earlier this season, averaging 10.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting .604 from the field. He was a member of the Wizards’ 2019 Summer League team, where he appeared in four games (two starts) and averaged 4.0 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.

Pasecniks was originally selected with the 25th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Orlando Magic before being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers on draft night.

“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.
