Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia 76ers have acquired point guard Tony Wroten from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for future draft considerations.

The 6-foot-6 Wroten appeared in 35 regular season games as a rookie for the Grizzlies last season and averaged 2.6 points. The 20-year-old was the fifth youngest player in the NBA last season.

Wroten was originally the 25th overall pick by Memphis in the 2012 NBA Draft following his freshman season at the University of Washington.
