Lee was waived by the Sixers on Thursday, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Lee was called up from the D-League less than a week ago, but with Jorge Gutierrez coming over from the Nets in a trade Thursday, the team will part ways with the UCLA product. Lee appeared in just one game this season, logging two garbage time minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday night.

Lee was called up by Philadelphia on Friday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Lee could have a hard time finding minutes on the court, although the 76ers have been known to deploy players that would normally be held off the court under other circumstances. Either way, Lee will be available for the 76ers moving forward.

Lee left Saturday's preseason game against Orlando with a sprained left ankle, the Sixers' official site reports. He will not return.

Lee had six points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 10 minutes before the injury. If he makes the final roster, he is expected to play only a minimal role for Philadelphia this season.

Lee has reached agreement on a contract with the 76ers, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Lee, a second round pick in 2011, has seen his NBA career derailed by numerous surgeries over recent years. He last played for the Timberwolves during the 2012-13 campaign, when he featured in 16 games (12 starts) and averaged 4.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in 18.1 minutes. The 24-year-old combo guard will aim to carve out a spot on Philadelphia's cluttered roster during training camp.

Malcolm Lee had right hip and right knee surgeries in January and is still rehabbing the injuries, leaving his future with the Suns in question.

His right quadriceps still has not strengthened enough for him to be cleared for full basketball contact and his quadriceps will be remeasured Friday. "I thought I'd be back by now," Lee said. "It's definitely frustrating because going into the summer, I assumed I'd be back by training camp. It just sucks that I wasn't."

Malcolm Lee (knee) believes he'll be ready for training camp.

The Suns agreed to take on Lee's fully guaranteed $884K salary this season so they could move up and draft Archie Goodwin at No. 29 overall. Lee has had two knee surgeries and a hip surgery since breaking into the league in 2011. He's a poor bet to crack the rotation this season.

Malcolm Lee was traded to the Golden State Warriors in a draft-day deal on Thursday.

He was pretty much just a throw-in player from the Wolves in this deal. When the Wolves were decimated in the backcourt, Lee started 12 games and scored 5.4 minutes. He had surgery on his knee and hip in January and is a longshot to be a contributor for the Warriors.
