Thomas Bryant has agreed to a three-year, $25M deal to return to the Washington Wizards, agent Todd Ramasar (@tramasar) tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
According to multiple reports, the Wizards have agreed to terms that will keep Bryant on a three-year, $25 million contract. The former second-round pick averaged 10.5 points and 6.3 rebounds in just 20.8 minutes per game for Washington, which ultimately made him their starting center. The 21-year-old big man was originally drafted 42nd overall by the Jazz in 2017.
