MONDAY, 10:31am: The Sixers announced that Maynor has been waived.
SUNDAY, 4:38pm: The Sixers have waived guard Eric Maynor, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer (on Twitter). The move will make room for the incoming James Nunnally, who was just signed to a 10-day earlier today.
The Sixers acquired the former VCU hero from the Wizards in a three-team deal on February 20th. In that deal, which shipped Andre Miller to the Wizards and Jan Vesely to the Nuggets, Philly received the Nuggets’ 2016 second-round pick and the Pelicans’ 2015 second-round selection in exchange for absorbing Maynor’s contract. The Sixers will still owe Maynor $2.1MM on his player option for 2014/15 after severing ties.
In eight games for the Sixers this season, Maynor averaged 3.8 PPG in 14 minutes per contest.
