Seeking a backup for John Wall, #wizards have agreed to terms with free agent PG A.J. Price. Price has been with IND past 3 years.— Michael Lee (@MrMichaelLee) July 24, 2012
Price has played his entire career with the Indiana Pacers, after being drafted by the Pacers in the second round of the 2009 NBA Draft out of Connecticut. In his career, Price has averaged six points and two assists per game while shooting 37.5 percent from the field and about 31 percent from three point range. The Wizards continue to make decent moves to bring in some new players to change the culture of the team from previous years.
