Vaughn signed a one-year contract Tuesday with Adriatic League club KK Igokea of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The 22-year-old shooting guard will head overseas for the first time in his career after failing to establish himself as an NBA-caliber player since being selected by the Bucks in the first round in the 2015 draft. Vaughn appeared in 139 games with the Bucks, Nets and Magic between 2015-16 and 2017-18 before spending the past season in the G League.
Vaughn posted 23 points (9-15 FG, 5-9 3Pt), 11 rebounds, six assists and one steal in the 121-111 loss Friday to Windy City.
Not only did Vaughn lead the team in scoring Friday, it was also just his third double-double this season. The fact the 2015 first-round pick got the start at power forward should indicate the sheer lack of numbers on the side of the Blue Coats, as eight of the nine players who took the court Friday played 20 or more minutes.
Vaughn generated 23 points (8-22 FG, 6-15 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and two assists in the loss Friday to the Red Claws.
Vaughn has quietly turned into one of the Blue Coats best players, averaging 18.8 points with the team since being acquired in the beginning of January. The former first-round pick is attempting significantly more three-pointers as opposed to his time with the Legends (7.2 compared to 5.9 threes in 21 games with Texas) which is at least partially the reason Vaughn has molded into the consistent scorer he's demonstrated with Delaware.
Vaughn tallied 27 points (10-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds and four assists in the loss Friday to the Skyforce.
Vaughn got the spot start at small forward with Haywood Highsmith, Shake Milton and Norvel Pelle all inactive and proceeded to post a season-high with his new team. In six games with the Blue Coats this season, Vaughn is averaging 16.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 0.9 steals.
Vaughn was traded from the Texas Legends to the Delaware Blue Coats.
In 21 games with the Legends this season, Vaughn averaged 13.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 24.7 minutes. The former first-round pick isn't projected to see a significant uptick in minutes with his new team.
Vaughn scored 22 points and posted six rebounds to go along with four assists in the loss Wednesday to Stockton.
Vaughn has only been averaging 26 minutes through the first six games of the G-League season, so it was a bit of a surprise to see him register 36 on Wednesday. 8-for-23 from the field isn't exactly a sterling figure, but Vaughn did score a game-high 22 points so it's difficult to argue with the results. Fantasy owners should monitor his workload against the Blue on Friday.
Vaughn was waived by the Mavericks on Thursday, Bobby Karalla of Mavs.com reports.
Vaughn lasted just a few days on the roster, but he was never actually expected to make the team. Instead, the Mavericks were likely just trying to snag Vaughn's G-League rights, so expect the guard to now join the team's affiliate to start the year.
Vaughn signed a contract with the Mavericks on Monday, Bobby Karalla of Mavs.com reports.
Vaughn has bounced around the NBA of late and spent time with Brooklyn, Milwaukee and Orlando last season. He'll now get a shot with the Mavericks, but considering how late he was added to the roster during the team's preseason schedule, it seems highly unlikely that he's able to earn a final roster spot.
Vaughn produced 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block across 25 minutes during the Heat's 110-84 loss to the Pelicans in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Saturday.
The fourth-year wing was sharp from the field while checking off all the other boxes on the stat sheet as well. Vaughn has had limited opportunity in his first three NBA seasons, topping out at 14.3 minutes per contest in his rookie 2015-16 campaign in Milwaukee. Still only 21 years of age, he'll look to parlay an impressive summer league showing into a training camp invite.
Vaughn will play for the Heat's summer league team, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Vaughn started last season with the Bucks, but was traded to the Nets in February and also made a brief stint with the Magic after being waived by Brooklyn. The 21-year-old struggled to make much of an impact no matter where he was playing, which is why he's currently without a team. In hopes of earning a training camp invite, Vaughn will join the Heat for summer league in July, though he's still got a long way to go before potentially nabbing a regular-season roster spot.
Vaughn (knee) was waived by the Magic on Wednesday, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Considering Vaughn's knee likely wasn't going to be healed before the conclusion of his second 10-day deal, the Magic have simply opted to let him go. In four appearances with the team, he averaged 1.3 points and 1.0 rebound on 33.3 percent shooting across 8.8 minutes.
Vaughn (knee) will remain out for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Vaughn, who was signed to a second 10-day contract on March 2, is set to miss a second straight game while continuing to battle back from a sore knee. It's poor timing for the third-year guard, as the Magic will have to decide whether to keep Vaughn around for the remainder of the season or cut him within the next week. Look for Vaughn to target a return for Friday's tilt with the Kings, though even if he were to be cleared, Vaughn wouldn't be a viable fantasy target.
Vaughn has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Jazz due to a sore right knee, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Vaugn signed a second 10-day contract with the Magic on Friday and played 10 minutes in the team's win over the Grizzlies, but the knee injury will now certainly take a hit to his already-bleak future with the team. Vaughn's absence, however, should not have any major impact on Orlando's rotation Monday night in Utah.
Vaughn signed a second 10-day contract with the Magic on Friday, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.
Vaughn made four appearances with the Magic during his first 10-day contract, averaging 6.3 minutes per game. His long-term viability in Orlando isn't overly optimistic, but he has another 10 days to prove otherwise.
Vaughn signed a 10-day contract with the Magic on Tuesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.
Vaughn bounced around a couple teams leading up to the trade deadline, being traded with a second-round pick to the Nets from the Bucks in exchange for Tyler Zeller. Then, he was moved from Brooklyn to New Orleans in exchange for Dante Cunningham. He was then waived by the Pelicans. The Magic, after trading away Elfrid Payton for a second-round pick and piling up losses, are looking to give Vaughn a chance to make the squad after racking up a few underwhelming campaigns for Milwaukee. He holds career averages of 3.1 points and 1.1 rebounds across 12.2 minutes per game while shooting 33.7 percent from the field and 31.2 percent from beyond the arc.
Vaughn was released by the Pelicans on Saturday, Will Guillory of NOLA.com reports.
Vaughn will be on the move once again, as the 21-year-old was traded twice earlier in the week after spending his first two and a half seasons with the Bucks. He figured to be a deep bench option for the Pelicans and was inactive for his first game with the team.
Vaughn (Coach's Decision) is inactive for Friday's tilt against the 76ers, Sean Kelley of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.
Vaughn, who is expected to be a deep bench option for New Orleans, will not make his team debut Friday. It's unclear, but unlikely, that he'll be a significant part of the team's rotation.
Vaughn was traded to the Pelicans on Thursday in exchange for Dante Cunningham, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.
Just three days after being traded from the Bucks to the Nets, Vaughn is now headed to the Pelicans, where he'll likely remain a deep bench option for a team that appears to be fairly comfortable with their backcourt depth. Don't except Vaughn to see much playing time in New Orleans with the team focusing on a rotation of Rajon Rondo, Jrue Holiday and E'Twaun Moore.
Vaughn made his Nets debut Tuesday against the Rockets, playing four minutes and going scoreless with one assist.
Vaughn's availability came down to the wire, but Monday's trade between Milwaukee and Brooklyn ultimately became official before Tuesday's tip, so both Vaughn and Tyler Zeller were in action for their new teams. Vaughn had a limited role in Milwaukee, and he could struggle to find consistent minutes in Brooklyn, as well.
Vaughn was traded to the Nets on Monday as part of a package for Tyler Zeller, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Nets will also receive a protected second-rounder from the Bucks, who will part ways with Vaughn, their first-round pick in 2015. The UNLV product never found his niche in Milwaukee and through Monday was averaging his fewest minutes per game (7.9) since entering the league. At this time, it's unclear if Vaughn is just a throw-in in the deal, or if the Nets plan to give him a cameo over the final two-and-a-half months of the season.
