As the Philadelphia 76ers rushed to get rid of nearly every veteran that could lead them to more victories just before the trade deadline (and nearly did it with the exception being forward Thaddeus Young), they became a dumping ground in the process.
They acquired one experienced veteran in forward Earl Clark and immediately released him (and he signed with the New York Knicks).
In order to help facilitate the trade of Andre Miller from the Denver Nuggets to the Washington Wizards, the Nuggets had to find a taker for Wizards’ point guard Eric Maynor and the 76ers were the spot.
After hanging to Maynor for a little less than a month, the 76ers decided to release him.
#Sixers waived PG Eric Maynor and signed James Nunnally to a 10-day contract. They acquired Maynor from Wizards on Feb. 20 in 3-team trade.

Maynor was averaging 2.6 points, 1.7 assists and 1.3 rebounds per game this season.
To replace his spot on the roster, the team has signed James Nunnally to a 10-day contract.
