Rookie guard Maalik Wayns is back with the Sixers. After being waived on Jan. 6, Wayns was signed today to a 10-day contract.

The rookie free agent from Villanova and Roman Catholic High averaged 2.5 points and 1.0 assists in 20 games for the Sixers.

A team is able to sign a player to two, 10-day contracts. If a player is signed to the second 10-day deal, the team must either keep him for the rest of the season or release him after that.
