TUESDAY, 10:32am: The Sixers have officially signed Wayns, the team announced today in a press release.

MONDAY, 8:50am: The 76ers and Maalik Wayns have agreed to terms on a contract that will earn him an invite to training camp, according to Terry Toohey of the Times Herald. Having played his college ball at Villanova, Wayns is a local product that went undrafted after entering the draft following his junior year.

According to Toohey, Wayns' deal is similar to the one Lavoy Allen signed a year ago when the Sixers selected him in the second round. The contract will include a small guarantee, and figures to pay Wayns the rookie minimum if he earns a spot on the team's roster.

Wayns, 21, averaged 17.6 points and 4.6 assists per game in his final season at Villanova. Wayns played for the Magic in the Orlando Summer League and was slated to play for the Warriors in Las Vegas before a groin injury made him unavailable. The 6'2" guard also worked out for the Sixers in the weeks leading up to June's draft.
