With excellent vision, good quickness, and a feisty defensive approach, Wayns made a strong impression on those who saw him play live in Orlando.
"He's done nothing but helped himself, in a lot of people's eyes. Not only ours, but others," said Magic summer league coach and former NBA point guard Mark Price. "I think he's probably played himself into an opportunity to get an NBA job. I like him a lot. He has a great heart, a great motor and I wish him the best."
A McDonald's All-American and Parade All-American during his time at Roman Catholic High, Wayns had a solid three-year career at Villanova. He averaged 17.6 points, 4.6 assists, and 3.8 rebounds last season as a junior.
As the summer league progressed, the question in Orlando changed from "Is he an NBA point guard?" to "How did he not get drafted?"
The answer, to Wayns, is simple.
"I think a lot of it had to do with our season," Wayns said. "We had a lot of young guys and a lot of people probably misunderstood me as a player. I'm just trying to show them that I belong and that I was supposed to be drafted."
Villanova finished with a 13-19 record last season and Wayns developed somewhat of a reputation for not playing like a true point guard, meaning that he looked to shoot first instead of pass.
But in the summer league, Magic teammates became the beneficiaries of some nifty passes and enjoyed having him as their point guard.
"He attacks the basket well, he's a tremendous passer," said Orlando Magic first-round pick Andrew Nicholson. "I like playing with him."
Although Wayns made a name for himself in Orlando, he will not rest until he finds a permanent home on an NBA roster.
"I'm just going to do what I do and play harder than everybody," Wayns said.
