In dire need of backcourt production, the Washington Wizards have reached agreement to sign guard Shelvin Mack, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Mack has averaged nearly 21 points per game for the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Developmental League. He will join the reeling Wizards on Monday.
Washington drafted Mack in the second round of the 2011 NBA draft out of Butler University, but released him before the start of this season. Mack received a non-guaranteed contract.
The Wizards released veteran guard Shaun Livingston on Saturday night. Washington is 3-22, on a seven-game losing streak and still awaiting the season debut of star point guard John Wall.
