The revolving door of Washington Wizards point guards continues to swing. Yahoo! Sports reports the Wizards have signed Shelvin Mack, the Butler University product the team drafted in 2011 before cutting him from the roster earlier this season.

According to the report, the Wizards will sign Mack to a non-guaranteed contract after cutting veteran point guard Shaun Livingston, who himself signed with the Wizards during this season but was cut after the Wizards' 96-87 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Saturday. Mack has spent the 2012 season with the Maine Red Claws of the D League, where he has averaged nearly 21 points per game.

The Wizards are off to a historically bad 3-22 start this season, with starting point guard and captain John Wall sidelined indefinitely due to a knee injury.
