With just a few weeks remaining until training camp, the Wizards have room to add another player to their 15-man roster. Whether they start camp with 14 players remains to be seen, but if they do add someone it won’t be Chris Singleton.

The free-agent forward agreed to terms with the Indiana Pacers a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Post’s Michael Lee. Eurobasket first reported the signing.

Singleton, 24, played three seasons in Washington after the Wizards drafted him 18th overall out of Florida State in 2011. He started a career-high 51 games his rookie year, but saw his playing time decrease in each campaign — falling from 21.7 minutes per game his rookie season to 10 minutes per game last season. Ultimately, Singleton averaged just 4.1 points and 3.2 rebounds in 148 games with the Wizards.

The Pacers, however, are very shorthanded at small forward and could provide Singleton a legitimate chance for playing time after a tumultuous offseason. Eastern Conference runner-ups the last two seasons, the Pacers are reeling after Lance Stephenson signed with the Charlotte Hornets and all-star Paul George sustained a gruesome leg injury during a Team USA scrimmage earlier this summer that will sideline him for the entire 2014-15 season.
