Wizards sign Peter John Ramos

Washington, DC (Sports Network) – The Washington Wizards have signed Olympian
Peter John Ramos. Ramos is a member of Puerto Rico’s Olympic team, which will
compete in the upcoming Olympic Games. Per team policy, terms of the contract
were not disclosed.

“We are pleased to have Peter under contract with the Wizards,” said Ernie
Grunfeld, president of basketball operations.

“Peter (7’3″) has great size, a good shooting touch, gets up and down the
floor well, and at 19, has the potential to be a very solid NBA player.”

Ramos, selected by the Wizards in the second round of the 2004 NBA Draft,
was an early entry candidate after playing the last four seasons with
Criollos De Caguas of the Superior Basketball League (BSN) in Puerto Rico.
