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.
