PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eric Maynor era was a short one for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Maynor, acquired in a trade at the NBA trade deadline, along with two second round picks, was waived by the Sixers, the team announced today.
Maynor has a player-option for the 2014-15 season of over $2 million, that the Sixers will be on the hook for.
Maynor appeared in eight games for the Sixers, scoring 3.8 points per game on 37.9% shooting. He averaged 1.5 assists and 1.5 turnovers per game.
Taking his spot on the roster is forward James Nunnally, who signed a 10-day contract with the team.
Nunnally, 23 years old, is an undrafted rookie free agent out of UCSB. He appeared in four games for the Atlanta Hawks this season, scoring 4.5 points per game. He’s scored 18 points per game in 35 NBA D-League games this season.
