According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Y! Sports, the Sixers have acquired point guard Tony Wroten from the Memphis Grizzlies for a future second round pick. Wroten, 20, was the 25th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft out of the University of Washington.
The 6'6" 208 lbs. guard averaged 2.6 points and 1.8 assists in 7.6 minutes per game last season with Memphis. In his only season at Washington, Wroten averaged 16.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game. He was the first ever freshman named to the All-Pac 12 First Team and was the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year.
Wroten is paired with 6'6" point guard Michael Carter-Williams to give the 76ers two of the tallest point guards in the NBA. At 20 years old, he is young and still developing which means Brett Brown could be the one to tap into his potential. I like the deal for the Sixers as there is low-risk and high-reward with it.
