It looks like Ben Uzon won't be the only free agent competing for a roster spot in the wake of A.J. Price's injury. According to Michael Lee, the Wizards have also brought in Blake Ahearn for a work out as a potential fill-in while Price and Wall recover.

Ahearn has spent most professional career bouncing back and forth between the NBA and the D-League since going undrafted in 2007. As a pro, he's spent time with the Heat, Spurs, Jazz and most recently, with the Pacers who cut him during the preseason. His career numbers are similar to Uzoh, averaging 4.6 points and 1.2 assists per game in 19 career games.

If the Wizards do sign Blake Ahearn, one thing they won't have to worry about is free throw shooting. Last year, while playing with the Reno Bighorns, Ahearn set an NBA record by making 110 straight free throws over a 42 day stretch.
