As part of the Anthony Davis three-team deal, Moritz Wagner, Jemerrio Jones and Isaac Bonga are now officially Wizards.
The three players were sent to the Wizards in exchange for cash considerations and to free up cap space for the Lakers to afford another max contract. Unfortunately for the Lakers, their primary target, Kawhi Leonard, opted to sign with the "other LA team" (Clippers). Wagner, Jones and Bonga don't project to be able to make a fantasy impact with their new team and can be ignored in standard-league drafts.

Jemerrio Jones will be traded to the Wizards.
Jones only appeared in six games last season but will give the Wizards someone to help shore up the shooting guard position. He's unlikely to make waves in fantasy.

The Lakers are trading Mo Wagner, Isaac Bonga and Jemerrio Jones to the Wizards for a 2022 second round pick as part of the Anthony Davis deal, while the Pelicans will get $1.1 million in cash from the Wizards.
The Lakers have now got themselves max cap space in their pursuit of a third star to pair with Davis and LeBron James. Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler and Kemba Walker are at the top of the Lakers wish list. As for Wagner, he finds himself on a team that showed an interest in him before last year's draft and an opportunity at some minutes. He could provide sneaky late-round value in fantasy leagues next season. This buildup to free agency continues to get more and more interesting by the hour. Mark June 30th on your calendar.

Rookie F Jemerrio Jones had another solid night in the Lakers' 104-101 loss to the Blazers in Tuesday's finale, scoring 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting (including a three) with 15 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks over 46 minutes.
Jones had a fun finish during silly season and even showed that he can do some things, too. We'll be tracking his progress over the summer and he's worth a look as a flier in Dynasty leagues, trending more toward deep formats where upside plays have to be snapped up quickly, even when there's not enough data to go on. He averaged 8.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks over 23.9 mpg in six games.

Recent G-League callup F Jemerrio Jones made his first career start on Sunday for the Lakers, scoring five points on 2-of-5 shooting (including a three) with a career-high 16 boards, five assists, one steal and two blocks over 38 minutes.
Jones' boards were a franchise record for a player in their first start and he fits the mold as a producer in the Lakers' final game on Tuesday. He's well worth a look in that spot. Johnathan Williams added 14 points with eight boards in 22 minutes off the bench, and he might be worth a look in that capacity, too.

Jemerrio Jones was active in his fourth game as a Laker on Friday, crashing the glass for a career-high 10 boards while also chipping in five points (2-of-5 shooting), two assists, one steal and two blocks in 25 minutes.
His four games in the league are too small of a sample size to count on him for help down the stretch. That said, he could pop should the Lakers rest their other veterans, so keep glued to the news.

The Lakers will sign Jemerrio Jones for the remainder of the season.
Jones’ contract is actually a two-year deal with a team option for next year. The undrafted 6’5″ rookie out of New Mexico State has displayed stat-sheet stuffing ability in the G-League with 9.4 points, 9.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 0.3 triples in only 24.7 minutes while shooting 54.4 percent from the field. The lottery-bound Lakers may want to see what they have with the 2018 WAC Player of the Year but there is no guarantee that he gets any playing time.
