SATURDAY, 1:34pm: The Clippers officially announced their deal with Wayns, HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy notes via Twitter.
FRIDAY, 7:45am: The Clippers have signed former Villanova guard Maalik Wayns to a 10-day contract, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). The Clippers had been carrying 14 players, so a corresponding move isn't necessary to open up a roster spot for Wayns.
Wayns went undrafted in 2012, but was signed as a rookie free agent by the 76ers. The team was unwilling to guarantee his contract for the season though, releasing the 21-year-old just before the guarantee deadline, then re-signing him to a 10-day contract before eventually parting ways with him. In 21 games for Philadelphia, Wayns averaged 2.7 PPG while shooting an ugly 26.4% from the field in 7.9 minutes per contest.
As our 10-day contract tracker shows, teams have been actively filling roster spots with players on 10-day deals since the trade deadline. Including Wayns, eight players are currently on 10-day contracts, with Terrel Harris expected to become the ninth if and when he finalizes his agreement with the Hornets.
