Makur Maker, who, played for the Chicago Bulls in the Las Vegas Summer League in July, signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Washington Wizards Wednesday.
An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year, minimum salary deal that can be converted into a two-way contract before the regular season starts. According to The Washington Post, Maker will participate in the Wizards’ training camp next month, then join the Capital City Go-Go, their G League affiliate.
Makur Maker averaged 7.2 points on 52.6% shooting from the field and 44% shooting from deep on 1.8 attempts in five games with the Bulls this summer.
At 21 years of age and two years removed from being a five-star prospect, the 6-foot-11 Maker seemed tailor-made for the Chicago Bulls’ last two-way contract.
Instead, he now heads to the nation’s capital looking to uncork his untapped potential and become somebody else’s diamond in the rough.
