Wayns (1.85 meters, 23 years old) arrives from Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA, where he averaged 3.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6 games, in his second stint with the team. Wayns started the season in Los Angeles and moved to Rio Grande Valley of the D-League, where he averaged 12.3 points and 4.2 assists in 11 games before re-joining the Clippers. He has also played for Philadelphia of the NBA and has been a member of the USA U18 national team. "We are very happy that Maalik's future will be in Zalgiris. He led his team very well during the NBA Summer League, being really unselfish and distributing the ball well," Zalgiris general manager Paulius Motiejunas said. "He was a leader in college and has NBA experience, so we believe he can take all that to Europe."
