Sixers Decide Against Extension For Tony Wroten

The Sixers will not give fourth-year combo guard Tony Wroten an extension prior to the midnight deadline on Monday night, a source told Derek Bodner of (Twitter link). That reiterates what Marc Stein of reported over the weekend.

Wroten, who was originally drafted by the Grizzlies, averaged 16.9 points and 5.2 assists with Philadelphia last season before a knee injury ended his season last January. He is still rehabbing the injury and isn’t expected to return until next month.

The Sixers have until June 30th to extend their qualifying offer of approximately $3.2MM to Wroten, which would make him a restricted free agent in July. He is making $2,179,353 this season. By deciding against an extension for Wroten, the Sixers still have just $24.5MM in guaranteed salary commitments for the 2016/17 season.
