The Wizards waived Sloan on Saturday, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sloan, who was on a training-camp deal with the club, figured to face long odds in landing on the final roster. His absence from the Wizards' preseason finale pretty much signaled his eventual departure. The 29-year-old will now be forced to find a new opportunity with a team looking for point guard depth.

Sloan signed a one-year contract with the Wizards on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sloan, who spent last season in China, will make his return to the States during the 2017-18 campaign. The five-year NBA veteran last took the floor for the Nets, posting 7.0 points, 4.4 assists and 2.8 rebounds across 21.6 minutes per game while shooting 44.0 percent from the field and 38.4 percent from three. He should help provide some point guard depth behind starter John Wall, though may have to compete with Tim Frazier for reserve minutes.

Sloan signed a one-year, $2.7 million contract Wednesday with Guangdong of the Chinese Basketball Association, Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old Sloan appeared in 61 games for the Nets last season, averaging 7.0 points, 4.4 assists and 2.8 rebounds over 21.6 minutes per game. He ended up making 33 starts after Jarrett Jack suffered a season-ending ACL tear in January, but didn't make enough of an impact to hold on to that role for good, ultimately surrendering starting duties to Shane Larkin in late March. Given his five seasons of NBA experience, Sloan probably generated interest from teams as a third-string point guard, but he likely would have struggled to receive the guaranteed money he'll earn with Guangdong, the team he helped lead to a CBA title in 2013. Once the CBA season comes to an end in late February or early March, Sloan could end up latching on with an NBA team for the rest of the campaign.

Sloan finished with 19 points (6-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five assists, and three rebounds in 35 minutes during the Nets' 129-105 loss to the Pacers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Sloan and Shane Larkin shared the backcourt for much of the contest, and Sloan managed to score a season-high 19 points. He was also rather efficient, committing zero turnovers albeit in a blowout loss, and Sloan now has three straight games with exactly five assists. The Nets are only playing for pride during the last two contests, and veterans are receiving rest. As a result, Sloan and several other Nets could be in the conversation for cheap dart throws over the final two regular season games.

Sloan (illness) returned to action in Wednesday's 121-103 loss to the Wizards, finishing with no points (0-5 FG) and five assists over 17 minutes.

EDGE Analysis

Sloan missed Sunday's loss to the Pelicans while dealing with an upper-respiratory illness, but with two full days off between games, he was able to slot back into his usual role on the second unit. Shane Larkin hasn't really offered standout production since claiming the starting role at point guard, but he's been steady enough to stave off Sloan.

Sloan has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Pelicans with an upper respiratory illness.

EDGE Analysis

Sloan came down with an illness early Sunday morning and will now be held out of their matchup with the Pelicans. With Sloan sidelined, look for Shane Larkin to handle the bulk of the playing time at the point. Considering it's just an illness, it's not expected to keep him sidelined for long and he could be back as soon as Wednesday's outing versus the Wizards.

Sloan will move to a bench role for Thursday's game against the Cavaliers, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Sloan producing only one double-digit scoring performance in the last five games, coach Tony Brown has elected to shake things up, inserting Shane Larkin into a starting role. Both Sloan and Larkin haven't been seeing huge differences in their minutes over the last few games as it is, but Sloan figures to see the smaller portion of the timeshare at point guard nonetheless beginning with Thursday's game.

Sloan failed to score (0-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) while adding six assists and three rebounds over 27 minutes in Tuesday's 105-100 loss to the Hornets.

EDGE Analysis

Sloan hasn't typically been this inefficient from the field, but he's been very reluctant to look for his own offense of late, tallying single-digit points and no more than six shots attempts in four of his last five games. His assist totals have been hit or miss during that stretch as well, but with backup point guard Shane Larkin producing equally mediocre numbers off the bench, it doesn't appear Sloan's starting job is in danger.

Sloan scored 14 points (4-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go with nine rebounds, nine assists, and one steal across 34 minutes during the Nets' 95-89 loss to the 76ers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Though Sloan struggled from the field, he committed zero turnovers and put up a quality line. The 76ers tend to bring the best out of its opponents, but Sloan has proven capable of contributing decently in each of these three categories during his time as the Nets' starter. As a result, he is worthy of consideration in fantasy, especially in leagues that strictly value counting stats.

Sloan scored 11 points (4-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go with six assists and two rebounds in Tuesday's loss to the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

While Sloan continues to see a relatively heavy workload, Tuesday's game is a representation of the type of production he's capable of providing. Sloan hasn't reached the 20-point threshold in any game this season, and he's only reached double-digit assists twice. The Texas A&M product remains a decent punt play at point guard, however, as he's virtually locked in to 25-30 minutes on most nights.
