Array ( [0] => [1] => 550 [2] => 367 [3] => 1 )

The Washington Wizards re-signed free-agent guard Raul Neto on Saturday.

Terms were not disclosed, but The Athletic reported earlier this week that it was a one-year deal.

The deal comes on the heels of Washington completing a five-team, sign-and-trade agreement to acquire Spencer Dinwiddie, Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Aaron Holiday while sending Russell Westbrook to the Los Angeles Lakers.

The 29-year-old Neto, who hails from Brazil, averaged 8.7 points and 2.3 assists last season in 64 games (22 starts) and shot 39 percent from three-point range.

Neto, who joined the Wizards in 2020, was a second-round draft pick by the Atlanta Hawks in 2013.

He spent four seasons with the Utah Jazz (2015-19) and one with the Philadelphia 76ers (2019-20). He has career averages of 5.6 points and 1.9 assists on 45.2 percent shooting.
