After clearing waivers on Wednesday, free-agent guard Brandon Jennings signed a deal with the Washington Wizards, league sources told The Vertical.

The Wizards are waiving undrafted rookie forward Danuel House to create a roster spot for Jennings, league sources said.

Jennings traveled to Washington on Wednesday to meet with the team prior to its Friday game against the Toronto Raptors, league sources said. Washington is 35-23 and holding onto the third seed in the Eastern Conference.

The New York Knicks waived Jennings on Monday, choosing to sign a younger guard, Chasson Randle. Jennings had been pursuing the chance to play for a contender and had discussed his potential role with Wizards star John Wall and general manager Ernie Grunfeld, league sources said.

Jennings, 27, averaged 8.6 points and 4.9 assists for the Knicks in 58 games. For his career, Jennings has averaged 14.8 points and 5.8 assists per game. He’s had stops in Milwaukee, Detroit, Orlando and New York.
