The Sixers recalled Arnett Moultrie from the NBA's D-League Sunday, and the future of another rookie -- Maalik Wayns -- is in jeopardy.

The team announced it had waived Wayns, an undrafted guard out of Villanova. Wayns, who averaged 2.5 points in 20 games, had played only two of the Sixers' last seven. Coach Doug Collins once had envisioned Wayns as a backup point guard to Jrue Holiday, but that plan never materialized.

By rule, Wayns will remain on waivers for 48 hours. If he's unclaimed, the Sixers can sign him to a more-temporary contract than what they would have been locked in to with Wayns' rookie deal, which carried a partial guarantee had they not made a move prior to today at 5 p.m.

Moultrie, assigned to Sioux Falls Dec. 21, hadn't been getting minutes with the Sixers. In his time in the D-League, the first-year forward out of Mississippi State averaged 9.7 points and 6.1 rebounds in seven games. The Sixers need more from Moultrie than six minutes per game over 11 appearances.
