WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Wizards signed free agent guard A.J. Price on Tuesday.
Price, who played three seasons with the Indiana Pacers, will give the team depth in the backcourt, team president Ernie Grunfeld said. He'll be a backup for Wizards guard John Wall.
The 6-foot guard has averaged 6 points, 2 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 150 games in the last three seasons with the Pacers.
Price was selected by the Pacers in the second round of the 2009 draft.
With Price's signing, Washington has 13 players under contract.
