Sixers acquire Tony Wroten in trade with Memphis

The 76ers acquired shooting guard Tony Wroten from Memphis Thursday night in exchange for future draft considerations.

It's believed the Sixers sent a top-50-protected,
second-round pick in the 2014 NBA draft to the Grizzlies in return for Wroten, a 20-year-old who was the 25th overall selection in the 2012 draft.

Wroten played in 35 regular-season games and logged time in six more in the playoffs with Memphis, which made the Western Conference Finals. He averaged 7.8 minutes, 2.6 points and 1.2 assists per appearance, while shooting 38 percent overall.

Most of Wroten's season was spent with Reno, of the NBA Development League.

The trade is pending the completion and passing of a physical.
