Winless Wizards waive Pargo, sign Livingston

WASHINGTON (AP) - The winless Washington Wizards waived Jannero Pargo and signed free-agent guard Shaun Livingston on Thursday, bringing back a player they hope can help fill the void until John Wall returns from injury.

The Wizards will try to avoid falling to 0-8 for the second consecutive season when they host the Utah Jazz on Saturday night.

A post Thursday on Wizards owner Ted Leonsis' blog said: ``We are certainly playing shorthanded, but we still should be a better team with better results than where we sit today.''

Washington is the only club in the 30-franchise NBA without a victory this season.

Pargo appeared in all seven of Washington's games so far, averaging 3.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.6 minutes.

He was signed shortly after the Wizards announced that Wall would miss the first month or so of the regular season with a left knee injury.

Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, led the Wizards by averaging 16.3 points and eight assists last season. Neither he nor center Nene has played in a game this season.

The 6-foot-7 Livingston was waived by the Houston Rockets in late October after spending the preseason with them. He played for the Milwaukee Bucks last season, averaging 5.5 points, 2.1 assists and 2.1 rebounds and making 27 starts.

Since being the No. 4 overall pick in the 2004 NBA draft out of high school, Livingston has played for six clubs across seven seasons, averaging 6.8 points, 3.5 assists and 2.6 rebounds.

He was with the Wizards in 2009-10, when he appeared in 26 games, with 18 starts, and averaged 9.2 points and 4.5 assists.
