The Indiana Pacers let their point guard security blanket go this summer when A.J. Price hit the free agent market and according to reports, Price has officially moved on to join the Washington Wizards.

Price should have a fair shot at earning a spot in Washington's playing rotation behind John Wall. Price was never able to break through with the Pacers and solidify a spot in the rotations, always stuck behind some combination of Jarrett Jack, T.J. Ford, Darren Collison and George Hill at point guard.

Juice had his moments though, and was always ready to jump in when one of those players went down. In fact, it always seemed like Price played his best games on short notice, jumping into the fray without letting the team skip a beat. The guy prepared like a pro and it showed.

Price was a locker room favorite with his low-key demeanor and sharp wit able to send teammates howling in laughter. No doubt he will get a warm reception from his former teammates when he is in town with the Wizards next year.

Price's arrival in D.C. may be bad news for former Butler star Shelvin Mack, the Wizards current backup point guard option. Unfortunately, Mack continues struggling to adjust to that role in the NBA so the Wiz made a smart move to sign a dependable backup in Price.
