Tony Wroten stated on Twitter on Monday that he would "love" to join the Knicks and that playing in Madison Square Garden is a "dream" of his.
While Wroten may be interested in moving to New York, the feeling doesn't appear to be mutual as a report from January 3 stated that there's "nothing really happening" between Wroten and the Knicks, and there have not been any indications that anything has changed on that front. Jan 26 - 3:59 PM

The Heat have reportedly expressed an interest in fee agent Tony Wroten.

Several teams have inquired about Wroten since the 76ers waived him back in December, but they are likely just doing their due diligence. The Heat have been devastated by injuries in their backcourt, but Wroten wouldn't have much value in Miami. Nothing is imminent and no offer was made.

There is "nothing really happening" with Tony Wroten and the Knicks, a source told the New York Post.

This is our shocked face.
Jan 3 - 2:00 PM

The Knicks are among several teams who have reportedly expressed interest in signing unrestricted free agent Tony Wroten.

Wroten was having a horrible season coming off major knee surgery, but he still can hoop, and will likely find his way onto an NBA roster one way or the other. That being said, he's not going to be a fantasy option this season and belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Tony Wroten was not claimed off waivers and is a free agent.

There's a decent chance he will remain off an NBA roster until the NBA starts using 10-day moves next month. Wroten can be dropped in just about all leagues.

The 76ers will reportedly waive Tony Wroten in order to make room for Ish Smith.

Wroten has been horrible this season, even by the 76ers standards, and this move to open up minutes for Smith really improves Smith's fantasy outlook in Philly. Ish could very well wind up as the 76ers starting point guard, so he's worth a speculative for those in need of a point guard with this news. Wroten can be cut in all formats.

Tony Wroten (scheduled rest) will not play on Wednesday night against the Bucks.

He is still not cleared for back-to-back sets. Wroten has been a disaster so far this year with his 32.0 usage rate and he has just 8.4 points per game. He is more trouble than he's worth in standard leagues. Kendall Marshall will start and should play minutes close to 20.
Wed, Dec 23, 2015 04:15:00 PM

Tony Wroten started for Kendall Marshall (rest) in Tuesday's loss and had seven points, seven assists and five rebounds on 2-of-9 shooting in 29 minutes.

He's not shooting well and is not scoring much as a result, and the bench role behind Marshall isn't doing him any favors. Wroten's averaging 10.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists over his last five games and Marshall is the choice to start for the Sixers when he's able to play. Just keep an eye on Wroten in case he wakes up.
Tue, Dec 22, 2015 09:49:00 PM

Tony Wroten will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies.

Kendall Marshall (rest) won't play tonight as the 76ers are currently on the first game of a back-to-back set, and Wroten will be rested tomorrow. Wroten is still on a strict 25-minute limit, so he's not a great play in most leagues.
Tue, Dec 22, 2015 05:27:00 PM

Tony Wroten scored 15 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and seven turnovers in 23 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

As per usual, Wroten had a 38.1 usage rate tonight and is now up to 33.6 on the season -- that's higher than any qualifier outside of DeMarcus Cousins and Russell Westbrook. Wroten's high turnovers and bad shooting numbers make him a weak target in standard leagues. Give him a look in points leagues, though.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 10:16:00 PM

Tony Wroten came off the bench to score 12 points in 16 minutes on Wednesday, hitting 4-of-10 field goals and 3-of-5 free throws in the Sixers' road loss.

He hit a 3-pointer and grabbed a few boards but did nothing else, aside from committing four turnovers. Whether he's starting or coming off the bench, Wroten isn't a viable option outside of points leagues -- and even there he should be avoided until his playing time increases.
Wed, Dec 16, 2015 11:54:00 PM

Tony Wroten and Kendall Marshall are both on 20-minute limits for Wednesday.

Marshall is going to start and it is his job to lose. Wroten will probably get a couple minutes at shooting guard, but that still means there won't be much T.J. McConnell tonight.
Wed, Dec 16, 2015 05:09:00 PM

Tony Wroten will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

The 76ers will roll out a starting lineup of Kendall Marshall, Isaiah Canaan, Robert Covington, Jerami Grant and Jahlil Okafor for tonight's game, but both Wroten and Marshall will remain on a minutes limit. T.J. McConnell will be lucky to earn minutes in the low-teens with both Wroten and Marshall active, and his days of relevancy in standard leagues are now behind him.

Tony Wroten scored a season-high 12 points with three rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes against the Bulls on Monday.

Wroten looked a little better tonight that he did in his previous three games, but he's still just not a guy who can hold value in standard leagues. He's worth a look in eight-cat or points leagues, though.
Tue, Dec 15, 2015 02:20:00 AM

Tony Wroten will start at point guard on Monday vs. the Bulls, pushing T.J. McConnell to the bench.

Additionally, Wroten will not have any playing time restrictions after sitting out the last two games for rest purposes. Even though he doesn't have any restrictions, Wroten is a risky play in DFS because we don't know if the 76ers will keep his minutes in check. If you're in a points league, it's time to think about adding Wroten.
