The Washington Wizards have agreed to terms with center Robin Lopez, Keith Smith of SLAM reports. Lopez turned down a $5 million player option with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2020-21.

Lopez’s deal is expected to be a one-year pact, worth slightly less than the mid-level exception, Smith adds.

The 32-year-old will join a Wizards organization eager to surround star Bradley Beal with a competitive roster. Lopez averaged 5.2 points per game for the Bucks last season but was a regular starter for much of the decade before that.

Lopez figures to back up Thomas Bryant at the five, in a role that Ian Mahinmi occupied in 2019-20. The Wizards also play stretch big Moritz Wagner at the five.
