After playing a season in the Chinese Basketball Association, Ty Lawson has found his way back on an NBA roster for the 2018 playoffs.

He averaged 25.5 points, 6.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds for the season including 55 points in his final game in China.
Lawson likely won’t get much if any opportunity for the Wizards in the postseason with John Wall back and healthy and Tomas Satoransky playing like one of the better backup point guards in the NBA this season, but he does add depth and experience (and hopefully maturity) for the Wizards.
Lawson is still only 30 but his NBA career took a downturn after he was traded from the Denver Nuggets after six seasons in 2015, where he became an journeyman with stops in Houston, Indiana and Sacramento before finding himself out of the league this past year.
We’ll see if he can impress enough to earn an NBA roster spot in 2018-19.
