Tuesday - 7/9/2013, 1:36am  ET

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Wizards have signed No. 3 overall draft pick Otto Porter and second-round selection Glen Rice Jr.

Under the NBA's scale for rookie salaries, Porter was expected to sign a deal that could pay him up to $19.4 million over four seasons, with the first two seasons guaranteed.

Porter averaged 16.2 points and 7.5 rebounds and was the Big East player of the year as a sophomore at last season Georgetown.

Rice was selected No. 35 overall by the Philadelphia 76ers. He was acquired by the Wizards in exchange for the 38th and 54th picks. He played last season for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBA Development League.

Both rookies will play for Washington's team in the Las Vegas Summer League.

The Wizards announced the deals Monday.
