Tony Wroten Signs With Estonian Team

Former first-round draft pick Tony Wroten has signed a deal with the Estonian team BC Kalev/Cramo, the club announced in a press release. Kalev/Cramo is part of the Latvian–Estonian Basketball League and the VTB United League.

Wroten, 25, was drafted 25th overall by the Grizzlies in 2012 and spent parts of the ensuing four seasons in the NBA. Memphis traded Wroten to the Philadelphia after his first season, where he would see most of his NBA action. Over three seasons, Wroten played in 110 games with the Sixers, averaging 13.8 PPG and 3.8 APG.

A partially torn ACL in Wroten’s right knee in Jan. 2015 forced him to the remainder of the season. After he returned, Wroten received limited playing time and was eventually waived. The University of Washington product signed with the Knicks but did not appear in a game and was waived in the summer of 2016 after the team acquired Derrick Rose.

The Grizzlies reacquired Wroten in June 2016 after claiming him on waivers. However, he was subsequently waived, re-signed and waived again over a four-month stretch.

Wroten appeared in 35 G League games last season with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, averaging 10.8 PPG and 3.8 APG in 35 games (11 starts).
