Grizzlies Claim Tony Wroten Off Waivers

The Grizzlies have claimed Tony Wroten off waivers, Ian Begley of reports (Twitter link). The Knicks waived Wroten with they agreed to acquire Derrick Rose.

GM Chris Wallace drafted Wroten back in 2012 and the University of Washington product played just one season for the Grizzlies. Wallace was forced to step down as GM back in 2014 during a front office shake-up and the team waived Wroten during that time, as Chris Herrington of the Memphis Commercial Appeal tweets.

Wroten only appeared in eight games for Sixers last season before Philadelphia waived him on Christmas Eve. The Knicks later signed him to a two-year deal, minimum-salary deal that contained no guaranteed salary for the 2016/17 campaign. Memphis will pick up that contract by claiming the guard off waivers. Wroten is a career 23.1% 3-point shooter and has a career player efficiency rating of 12.6.

    I don’t really understand why the Knicks dropped him. Seems like he could be a solid pickup for the Grizzlies.

    Written was traded to PHI by MEM, not via a waiver claim.

      No he wasn’t. He was cut by the 76ers, signed by the Knicks and cut/waived by the Knicks.
