Wizards sign Shaun Livingston

The Washington Wizards signed point guard Shaun Livingston Thursday to shore up their backcourt, immediately finding a new starter, the Washington Post reports.

With John Wall still out a few more weeks, the Wizards needed this to stop the bleeding. Their backcourt rotation has been A.J. Price and Jannero Pargo, who was waived to make room for Livingston.

Livingston has played the journeyman bit for three seasons since returning from the devastating knee injury he suffered in 2007. He was showing good signs in Houston before the Rockets inexplicably waived him to keep Toney Douglas.

Livingston is a solid game manager who won't play outside of himself. Wizards should have made this move weeks ago. The Wizards have not won a game this season.
