Former Liberty guard Caleb Homesley was waived by the Washington Wizards on Thursday. Homesley agreed to an Exhibit-10 deal with the NBA team in November, and he will be a strong candidate to join the Wizards’ G League affiliate, the Capital City Go-Go.
The 6’6″, 205 pound rookie, who wore the No. 1 jersey during his training camp and preseason stint with the Wizards, played in 10 minutes in their first preseason game. He scored 2 points while grabbing 4 rebounds, including 1 offensive, while shooting 1 of 7 from the field and 0 of 5 from three point range in the Wizards 119-114 loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
Homesley became just the fourth player in Liberty school history to sign an NBA deal when he inked with the Wizards last month. Liberty’s previous players that signed NBA deals include Julius Nwosu (1995/San Antonio Spurs), Peter Aluma (1998/Sacramento Kings), and Seth Curry (2013/Memphis Grizzlies).
Homesley finished his Liberty career as one of the best players in school history. He was a two-year ASUN First Team All-Conference selection, including being named the 2020 ASUN Player of the Year and Tournament MVP during his senior campaign as he helped the Flames to 59 wins and back to back ASUN regular season and Tournament championships his final two seasons. Homesley finished his Liberty career No. 10 on the school’s all-time scoring list with 1,539 points and No. 8 on the all-time rebounding list with 703 rebounds.
