Washington Cuts Justin Robinson

The Washington Wizards have cut Justin Robinson, the team has revealed, allowing them the opportunity to retain Gary Payton II who was more recently signed by way of a hardship exception.

Robinson, a 24-year-old undrafted rookie, saw action in just nine games for the Wizards after signing a non-guaranteed three-year pact earlier this year.

The Wiz will eat the prorated share of the non-guaranteed deal this season and will be free of any cap hits in the subsequent campaigns.

The Virginia Tech product has played 18 games for Washington’s G League affiliate, averaging 14.1 points and 6.2 assists per game so far in 2019-20.
