Shelvin Mack is back in the NBA.

The former Bryan Station High School standout signed a 10-day contract with the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday.

Mack, a 6-foot-3 point guard, was called up from the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League, where he averaged 20.5 points, 8.0 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.43 steals in 14 games.

Mack shot 46.2 percent from the field, 41.8 percent from three-point range and 89.6 percent from the foul line in D-League play. He joined the Red Claws after being waived by the NBA's Washington Wizards on Jan. 7.

Mack was the 34th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Wizards after leading Butler University to back-to-back appearances in the NCAA finals.

In 71 career NBA games with two starts, Mack has averaged 3.8 points, 2.2 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 13.0 minutes per game while shooting 40 percent from the floor, 29.1 percent from three-point range and 70.5 percent from the line.
