WASHINGTON — The Washington Wizards have signed Johnathan Williams to a two-way contract.

Williams will soon play alongside fellow Gonzaga Men’s Basketball alum Rui Hachimura. According to the NBA, he was originally signed by the Wizards in December, but was waived on January 4 after reaching the team’s 10-day limit on injury hardship exception.

“Johnathan has shown the ability to impact the game on both ends of the court during his time with us and during his previous NBA experience,” said Wizards GM Tommy Sheppard, “His experience playing for Coach Few at Gonzaga prepared him to be a professional both on and off the court and we look forward to his continued development within our program.”

The Wizards signed him again on Sunday. Previously, Williams had played for the Los Angeles Lakers and the South Bay Lakers.
