The Clippers, who have been dealing with injuries in their backcourt of late, signed guard Maalik Wayns to a 10-day contract Saturday.
Wayns, an undrafted rookie from Villanova, started the season with the Philadelphia 76ers but was waived in January before signing a 10-day contract with the Sixers. He played in 21 games, including one start, and averaged 2.7 points and 1.0 assists.
Wayns, 21, then signed with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBAs D-League and played in nine games, three starts. He averaged 12.4 points and 3.0 assists.
The 6-2, 200-pound guard played two seasons at Villanova and was named to the All-Big East rookie team as a freshman.
Clippers reserve guards Jamal Crawford (sore left ankle) and Eric Bledsoe (calf) have been nursing injuries in the past week. The addition of Wayns may allow coach Vinny Del Negro to give them additional rest until theyre fully recovered.

The Los Angeles Clippers have signed guard Maalik Wayns for the rest of the season.
The Clippers announced the deal Friday for Wayns, an undrafted rookie from Villanova.
Wayns has appeared in three games for Los Angeles, averaging 3.7 points and 2.3 assists. The Clippers signed him from the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the D-League on March 9.

DeAndre Jordan is right where he belongs--as part of the high flying dunk-tastic team affectionately known as Lob City, but officially known as the Los Angeles Clippers.
He proved that on Sunday with this dunk--a powerful, dominating jam that Brandon Knight is going to see in his sleep for at least the next few days.
Brandon Knight wasn’t just posterized on Sunday night. He was Jadeveon Clowney’d. He was highlight reeled for all time when Chris Paul threw DeAndre Jordan the alley-oop of all alley-oops. You’ll likely see this about 100 times on ESPN’s SportsCenter, but here it is anyway:
Gotta love the reaction from the Clippers players. Ouch.

DeAndre Jordan dunks on Brandon Knight, lays him out to rest
DeAndre Jordan, of Los Angeles Clippers fame, put an exclamation point on his season by dunking (slam dunking, to be exact) on Detroit Pistons guard, Brandon Knight.
It was the kind of situation players fear most — the posterization.
This one is instantly legendary, though.
Take a look for yourself…
Sophomore infielder Chris Paul slugs his second homer of the weekend and notched a first-inning bases-clearing double to lead the Bears to a four-game home sweep of Fresno State.

Los Angles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan completely disregarded Pistons guard Brandon Knight’s presence Sunday at the Staples Center. Brandon Knight was at the wrong place at the wrong time getting posterized by Jordan on this alley-oop from Chris Paul. Cleanup on aisle 3.

Remember when Blake Griffin posterized Pau Gasol multiple times in one game, well DeAndre Jordan might of just outdone him (and with only one dunk). During the Los Angeles Clippers home game against the Detroit Pistons DeAndre got a lob from CP3 and this was the result: I’ve watched the video at least 20 times, [...]
Personally, I've run out of words to describe some of these amazing slam dunks pulled off by the Los Angeles Clippers.To make this simple, I'm going to say this....DeAndre Jordan just dunked on Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight hard.The dunk was so impressive that it caused little kids at Staples Center to freak out:
The Los Angeles Clippers can usually count on a huge edge in bench points behind Jamal Crawford, who helped key a victory over the Detroit Pistons earlier this season.
The host Clippers are hopeful that Crawford will return from a sore ankle Sunday night when they look to defeat the Pistons for the fourth straight time.
Los Angeles (44-20) is averaging 40.8 points off the bench...
