WASHINGTON -- Second-round draft pick Steve Blake signed with the Washington Wizards on Thursday.

Blake was selected No. 38 overall from Maryland, where he became the first player in ACC history to have 1,000 points, 800 assists, 400 rebounds and 200 steals.

He will enter training camp in October as the backup point guard behind Gilbert Arenas, who was signed as a free agent from Golden State.
