Two-way player Devin Robinson was arrested on Saturday morning as the Washington Wizards announced. Robinson got into an altercation that led to a fight, resulting in his arrest by the Metropolitan Police. 

NBC Philadelphia reports that Robinson was arrested for disorderly affray.

This arrest stems from a fight that Robinson got into outside of the Washington DC Opera Night Club with current Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills, sources tell NBC Sports Washington's Chris Miller and Ben Standig.

The fight started as a verbal argument when Robinson did not think that Mills should not be in DC because he doesn't play for a DC team, according to Les Bowen

NBC Philadelphia also reports that Robinson was taken to a local hospital for treatment following the fight.

On Saturday the Washington Wizards issued the following statement on Robinson:

We are aware of the incident this morning involving Devin and are disappointed in his actions. We will not extend a qualifying offer to him for the 2019-20 season.

Robinson, 24, was a two-way player for the Wizards and the Go-Go this past season. He played in seven games in Washington where he averaged 6.7 points a game. 

As a member of the Go-Go Robinson made electric play after electric play throughout the season. One of his dunks made it onto SportsCenter and generated waves throughout the Wizards fan base. 

 

Washington is not eligible to sign Robinson to another two-way deal, as they also had the same agreement in the 2017-18 season. Teams are only allowed to sign a player to a two-way contract for a maximum of two seasons. For Washington to retain any rights to the forward, they had to extend a qualifying offer to restrict his free agency.

The above statement indicates the team will not send out an offer and Robinson now becomes an unrestricted free agent.
