Baker has been waived by Washington, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
After being let go by the Knicks on Dec. 13, Baker found a new home with the Wizards on Dec 19. However with the Wizards, Baker was a non-factor offensively as he only averaged 11.3 minutes across four appearances while failing to score. The move doesn't come to much of a surprise as the Wizards would of had to make Bakers' contract guaranteed before the deadline Monday. After clearing waivers, Baker will become a free agent.
After being cut by the Knicks a week ago, Baker will stick on the East Coast and join a Wizards squad in need of guard depth following the recent trades of Austin Rivers and Kelly Oubre to the Suns. In a corresponding move, the Wizards will waive Okaro White. Baker suited up in 11 games for the Knicks this season, averaging 1.3 points and 1.2 assists in 9.7 minutes per contest.

Due to the emergence of young talent such as Allonzo Trier and Damyean Dotson, Baker found himself on the outside of the rotation looking in for most of the season. Now, with Trier's two-way deal being converted into a full-time NBA contract, Baker was waived in order to create an open roster spot for the rookie.
