Former Liberty F Caleb Homesley is set to make his NBA Summer League debut for the Washington Wizards.
Homesley is in his second off-season since graduating and will seek to make an NBA roster and see the court for the first time in his young career. Homesley signed a multi-year deal with the Wizards in May, but did not join the team and was assigned to the G-League. While Homesley is not currently on the Wizards active roster, he will compete with their summer league team in hopes for a spot on the 15-man roster for the upcoming NBA season.
Homesley, the 2019 ASUN Player of the Year, is seeking to become the third consecutive ASUN POTY to make an NBA roster. Garrison Matthews (2018) and Brandon Goodwin (2017), were both seen on NBA rosters last season with the Wizards and Hawks.
Homesley last played with the Erie Bayhawks in the NBA G-League. While a member of the Bayhawks, Homesley averaged 9.3 ppg, 4.2 rpg, and 2.4 apg while establishing himself as a steady starter for most of the season.
Homesley and the Wizards were set to open up summer league play Sunday night against the Pacers, but that game was postponed due to Washington not having enough players because of COVID protocols. The Wizards next game is scheduled for Tuesday, August 10th, against the Kings. Tip-off is set for 10:00 pm EST and you can watch the game on ESPN3.
