Grizzlies trade 2012 first-round pick Tony Wroten to 76ers

The Memphis Grizzlies traded guard Tony Wroten, a 2012 first-round NBA draft pick, to the Philadelphia 76ers for a future second-round selection, league sources told Catfish Hughes.
Wroten, 20, was the Grizzlies’ 25th overall pick. He averaged 2.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in 7.8 minutes per game.
Philadelphia is still working to meet the minimum team salary requirement of $52.811 million as it works to construct a roster before the start of training camp in September.
Wroten, a 6-foot-5 left-hander, left Washington in 2012 after an excellent freshman season in which he was the Huskies’ second-leading scorer at 16 points per game.
