Wizards Acquire Jonas Valanciunas In Sign-And-Trade

Published on 6 July 2024 at 15:53

JULY 6: The Wizards have officially added Valanciunas, completing the signing via sign-and-trade, the team announced today in a press release.

Washington was able to take on Valanciunas using a $9.8MM trade exception created in last July’s Monte Morris trade, preserving its full $12.9MM mid-level exception.

In exchange for accommodating the Wizards, the Pelicans received the Bulls’ top-50 protected 2027 pick. That pick may not actually convey, but New Orleans will also create a trade exception of its own equivalent to Valanciunas’ outgoing salary, which will be around $9.9MM, per Christian Clark of NOLA.com (Twitter link).

Valanciunas’ contract will be fully guaranteed for the first two years and non-guaranteed in year three, tweets Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.
