Mavs sign G Maalik Wayns.

After playing in Russia last year, he's likely just going to be a camp body. Wayns was also in Italy earlier in his career, but he did spend some time with the 76ers and Clippers.

Maalik Wayns has signed a deal with Enisey Krasnoyarsk in Russia.

The former 76er spent last season in Italy where he averaged 10.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. The chances of him getting another chance in the NBA are very slim.

Maalik Wayns has signed with Pallacanestro Varese, sources told Sportando.

Wayns has bounced around overseas since his release from the Clippers in January of 2014, and the pint-sized point guard will find a more lucrative career abroad than he would stateside.

The Delaware 87ers have acquired Maalik Wayns.

This actually has fantasy implications. If the 76ers do trade Tony Wroten and Michael Carter-Williams suffers an injury, Wayns might be the staring point guard. Both of those things could happen, so owners in deep leagues should remember his name should either event go down.

Malik Wayns has signed a deal with BC Zalgiris of Lithuania and the Euroleague.

While Wayns will get to play with one of the oldest teams in Euroleague, this move won't change the NBA fantasy landscape at all. The 23-year-old has only played 29 games over three NBA seasons and suited up for just two games with the Clippers during the 2013-14 season.

Clippers waive G Maalik Wayns.

Wayns was let go to open up a roster spot for newly signed Hedo Turkoglu. This move won't affect any fantasy rosters, however, as Wayns has only played nine minutes all season.

Clippers sign G Maalik Wayns.

It's just a 10-day deal for Wayns after he was waived on Sunday. Wayns' knee issue has kept him off the court all season, but signing him to a 10-day deal means he could be healthy enough to play for the banged-up Clippers. He has very little fantasy value.

Clippers waive G Maalik Wayns.

He's been out all year due to a torn left meniscus after playing in just six games last season. If he clears waivers, the Clippers could try to sign Wayns to a 10-day deal.

Maalik Wayns (knee surgery) has resumed practicing but he was still limping as of Wednesday, according to Doc Rivers.

"Eventually he'll get on the floor," Rivers said. "But honestly, we're just trying to get him healthy right now." Darren Collison and Jamal Crawford will handle primary PG duties until Chris Paul (shoulder) recovers, but if Wayns can't suit up L.A. may look to pad their backcourt by picking up another guard.

Maalik Wayns has a torn meniscus in his left knee that will require surgery.

He wasn't expected to have fantasy value anyway, but it's a tough break for the player who was just hoping to make the team as a third point guard.
Tue, Oct 15, 2013 08:56:00 PM

Maalik Wayns left Monday's preseason game with a hyperextended left knee and did not return.

Wayns is the third string point guard and at this time it's unclear if the injury is serious.

Clippers PG Maalik Wayns didn't play in Friday's game due to a strained right hip flexor.

The injury shouldn't linger long enough to affect Wayns' status with the Clippers. His deal is unguaranteed for the 2013-14 season but he could stick as a third-string PG behind Chris Paul and Darren Collison.

Clippers re-sign G Maalik Wayns for the rest of the season.

The expected move is now official and Wayns will be with the Clippers the remainder of the year.

The Clippers will sign Maalik Wayns for the rest of the season.

The only time we've discussed him in 2013 was about him signing 10-day contracts, which should tell you all you need to know about his fantasy value.
