The Wizards have agreed to a training camp deal with Jordan Schakel, JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors reports. The pact will be an Exhibit 10 contract, as the team announced Tuesday evening.
The 6-foot-6 wing went undrafted following four years at San Diego State. He played for the Kings in this year’s Summer League.
Schakel is one of four players joining the Wizards on an Exhibit 10 deal. The team has also inked center Jaime Echenique, guard Jordan Goodwin, and center Jay Huff to training camp deals.
What Defines Success for the Wizards This Season?
The remodeling of the team gave reason for optimism, as Washington fields its deepest team since the pre-John Wall injury Wizards.
How will that translate to the win column? Oddsmakers project the Wiz to win 34.5 games with only six NBA clubs projected to win fewer.
Washington would need to outperform that total to make the postseason, something which remains the goal in Beal’s contract year. Should Washington get to the NBA’s second season, it would be worth noting the uphill battle Unseld and the Wizards faced to get there.
