Darrun Hilliard, who just signed a three-year contract with the Detroit Pistons, wasn't the only Villanovan participating in the NBA Summer League; point guard Maalik Wayns and big-man Maurice Sutton also got some run in the second Summer League session in Las Vegas.

Wayns, joined the Dallas Mavericks squad and came off the bench for their five games in Vegas. The 6'1" point guard provided a scoring threat from the point averaging 11.8 points per game in only 17 minutes per game. He led the squad in their final game with 22 points as he shot 45% from the floor and 36% from 3FG.

He told Dwain Price, the Mavs beat writer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, "I’m just trying to wait for my time and keep working and hopefully I’ll get a shot."

Sutton played with the NBA D-League Select team in the Las Vegas Summer League. In four games he averaged 5 points and 3.2 boards. His best outing came against the Washington Wizards when he tallied 4 points, 5 boards, and 3 blocks in 11 minutes (and also 5 fouls).
