Bryson Williams

Williams signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Clippers on Sunday, Law Murray of The Athletic reports. Williams spent his first two collegiate seasons at Fresno State before playing for two years at UTEP. He transferred to Texas Tech for his final season and will now compete for a roster spot with the Clippers for a second consecutive season. He made 23 appearances with the G League's Ontario Clippers last year and averaged 7.9 points and 4.5 rebounds in 20.9 minutes per game.

Skylar Mays

Mays signed a two-way deal with the Trail Blazers on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN relays. Mays popped for 15.3 points and 8.3 assists in six appearances with Portland last season after initially signing a 10-day deal in March. The 26-year-old averaged 14.1 points and 5.1 assists across 29 G League contests in 2022-23 as well. With Scoot Henderson, Anfernee Simons and Shaedon Sharpe already slated for ballhandling duties, the addition of Mays should more so secure a bonafide facilitator for Portland's G League affiliate.

Daniel Gafford

Gafford sustained an elbow injury during a recent pickup game and is expected to miss two-to-four weeks, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports. Gafford reportedly took a hard fall during a recent pickup game and landed on his elbow. While the exact diagnosis, or even which elbow it is, remains unknown, the belief is that the big man will be sidelined to start training camp, and he'll likely miss some preseason action. The goal, of course, is to have Gafford back for the Wizards' opener on Oct. 25 at Indiana. Gafford is projected to start at center for Washington -- a role he held for 47 of his 78 appearances a year ago.

Landry Shamet

Shamet sustained a broken big toe Sunday and is expected to miss two-to-four weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. It's unclear how Shamet suffered the injury, but it will cost him the start of training camp and will be something to monitor as the Wizards' Oct. 25 regular-season opener quickly approaches. Shamet, who came over from Phoenix as part of the Chris Paul trade, is expected to be in the mix for minutes at both guard spots off the bench.

Dejan Vasiljevic

Vasiljevic was waived by Washington on Sunday. Vasiljevic faced an uphill battle to make Washington's 15-man roster, but the Wizards still retain his G League rights. Washington will have the option to assign him to its G League affiliate if he's unclaimed by all other NBA teams. The 26-year-old played for Washington at 2023 Summer League as well.

Jules Bernard

Bernard signed a training camp contract with the Wizards on Sunday. Bernard's Exhibit-10 contract likely sets the stage for a return to Washington's G League affiliate, the Capital City Go-Go. The 23-year-old appeared in 32 games for the Go-Go last season, averaging 15.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 44.6 percent from the field.

Wenyen Gabriel

Gabriel and Boston agreed to a training camp contract Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Gabriel appeared in 68 games for the Lakers last season and will compete for a Celtics' roster spot for the upcoming campaign. With Robert Williams dealt to Portland, Gabriel currently profiles as a frontrunner to carve out a bench role in Boston's frontcourt. Luke Kornet and Neemias Queta represent competition.

Damion Lee

Lee suffered a right knee injury and will be out until further notice, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports. Rankin relays that Lee is believed to have suffered a meniscus injury during a recent workout at the team's training facility. The severity remains unclear, but this is certainly an issue that could sideline him for the first few weeks of the regular season. Lee likely wasn't on fantasy radars anyway, but in his presumed absence, Grayson Allen, Eric Gordon and Jordan Goodwin are candidates for increased roles behind Bradley Beal and Devin Booker.

Makur Maker

Maker signed a training camp contract with Toronto on Sunday. Maker appeared in 30 G League contests for Washington's affiliate last season, averaging 7.5 points on 42.8 percent shooting in 20.6 minutes per game. The 22-year-old spent Summer League with Philadelphia this offseason, and he will likely spend the 2023-24 season with the Raptors' G League affiliate.
