Former Wizards Ryan Rollins has been charged with as many as seven burglaries
Ryan Rollins was released by the Washington Wizards on Monday. A move that does not gain particular importance, given his short history in the best league in the world: two years in which he played 22 matches and a total of 128 minutes between the Warriors and the Wizards. Today, the General Court of Alexandria Governorate (Virginia) prepared a report that includes an accusation of committing seven robberies at the same facility during the months of September and November.
Rollins allegedly carried out all of his robberies at the same store, a Target establishment located in Alexandria, Virginia. The total value of the thefts does not reach $1,000, which is why it is classified as a misdemeanor. Rollins will have to appear in court and give evidence at the beginning of February.
All of this would explain the Wizards' decision to do without him. The point guard arrived in Washington as part of Jordan Paul and Chris Paul's move to Golden State. This was announced by Michael Wenger, the organization's president The athlete “We have just learned of the charges against Ryan. “We cannot comment on this case or the decisions we make regarding our employees.”
No one claimed Rollins 48 hours after his contract was terminated. So $1.7 million guaranteed for this season and $600,000 for next season becomes dead salary that the Wizards will have to consume. Last Tuesday, the team acquired the services of Hamidou Diallo on a ten-day contract to fill the gap left by Rollins.
