Sixers Re-Sign Shelvin Mack

The Sixers have re-signed Shelvin Mack to a second 10-day contract, the team announced today in a press release. Mack's initial 10-day deal, signed on January 17th, expired over the weekend.

Mack didn't play much during his first 10 days with the Sixers, only appearing briefly in last Monday's loss to the Spurs and Saturday's victory against the Knicks. The 22-year-old saw more extended action earlier in the season during his time with the Wizards, but was cut by Washington before his contract became guaranteed earlier this month.

The Sixers had been carrying 13 players, so no corresponding move is necessary to clear room for Mack, who will be the 14th man. If Philadelphia wants to keep the point guard around past his second 10-day contract, the club would need to ink him to a rest-of-season deal.
