Wizards to part ways with Devin Robinson after arrest
The Washington Wizards announced they will not tender a qualifying offer to forward Devin Robinson this offseason, choosing to part ways with the player after he was arrested Saturday morning for an undisclosed reason.
“We are aware of the incident this morning involving Devin and are disappointed in his actions. We will not extend a qualifying offer to him for the 2019-20 season,” the team’s brief statement read.
The team did not disclose further details regarding Robinson’s arrest, but multiple reports said he was involved in a fight outside a nightclub.
Robinson, 24, played most of the 2018-19 season with the G League’s Capital City Go-Go. He got into seven Wizards games, including the last three of the season, and averaged 6.7 points over 13.6 minutes per game at the NBA level.
He was entering restricted free agency, in which Washington would have the first rights to sign him by offering a qualifying offer. With the team saying it will decline to do so, Robinson will become an unrestricted free agent.
