Springfield Armor to sign Khalif Wyatt

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Khalif Wyatt, who was the Atlantic 10 Player of the Year at Temple last season, has been acquired by the Nets' D-League affiliate. Wyatt, a 6'4" guard, went undrafted last June and after a successful summer league with the Philly entry, signed with the Sixers only to be the last player cut.

D-League Digest first reported the acquisition and NetsDaily has confirmed it.

Wyatt played in the Chinese league until last month, then put his name in the D-League Player Pool, where the Armor picked him up.  All major player personnel moves for the Armor are made by the Nets' GM for minor league operations, Milton Lee.

Wyatt averaged 13.8 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in NBA Summer League, and played in four preseason games with the Sixers, averaging five points in limited action. in China, he averaged 15.0 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 4.9 assists in 27 games for the Guangdong Southern Tigers. At Temple, Wyatt had weight issues but slimmed down for Sixers training camp.

The move indicates that the Armor intend to make a run at the playoffs after a dreadful start.  With 20 games left, the Armor has a good shot of getting out of the Eastern Division. Each division winner and the five "wildcard" teams with the best records regardless of division will qualify for the playoffs. All seeding is based on regular season record only.  The combination of Wyatt and Darius Johnson-Odom should give the Armor one of the D-League's best backcourts.
