Grizzlies waive G Tony Wroten.
He only played six minutes in the preseason and never really had much of a chance. Wroten did score 16.9 points per game back in 2014-15, but an injury to his knee may have derailed him. He might have to head overseas this year. Fri, Oct 7, 2016 04:32:00 PM

Grizzlies sign G Tony Wroten.

Memphis had been a rumored landing spot for Wroten after being waived by the team last month and he'll now rejoin the team on what is likely a camp deal. While Wroten could make the Grizzlies final roster, he won't have much fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.

The Grizzlies are reportedly still a possible landing spot for free agent Tony Wroten.

Memphis waived Wroten last week after a short stint and it's unclear why they'd bring him back so soon after cutting him loose. He's likely to earn a training camp invite, with Memphis or another team, but fantasy owners should look elsewhere for late-round guards.

The Grizzlies have waived G Tony Wroten.

Wroten will have spent a total of 11 days with the Memphis franchise, and with such a short tenure, it's unclear exactly why the Grizzlies elected to claim him off waivers. He'll likely earn a camp invite somewhere, but it's tough to see him landing in a situation that will give him a shot at fantasy value.

The Knicks reportedly waived Tony Wroten last week for disciplinary reasons.

It's unclear what exactly Wroten did to be jettisoned by the Knicks, but a few days later he was claimed off waivers by the Grizzlies. New York has no depth at point guard behind Derrick Rose, and even if they retain Langston Galloway they're likely to add another backup PG in free agency.

The Grizzlies have claimed G Tony Wroten off waivers.

Wroten will be returning to the team that drafted him, and things have reportedly been going well in his recovery from a partially torn ACL. It's unlikely that Wroten can establish himself as a standard league asset during the 2016-17 season. The Wroten signing could spell the end of Xavier Munford's time in Memphis.

Knicks waive G Tony Wroten.

Wroten is extremely athletic and is a very highly-used player, but the turnovers and bad shots are tough for him to overcome. He'll likely get a camp invite somewhere, but he's no lock to make an NBA roster next year.

Tony Wroten's (knee) rehab has been going well, and he's reportedly got his "explosiveness" back, according to his longtime mentor Will Conroy.

"He’s got his explosiveness back,’’ Conroy said. "He’s a top-20 talent." The top-20 upside may be a bit of a reach, but it's good to know that Wroten is progressing well in his rehab from a second ACL surgery. Wroten suffered his first ACL tear as a junior in high school, and when the 76ers evaluated his knee, they reportedly determined that the first procedure was "rushed" and done "improperly" which is why they decided to do the entire ACL again during his second procedure. Wroten is reportedly "fired up" to suit up for the Knicks' Summer League squad this offseason.

Tony Wroten believes that he will be the starting point guard for the Knicks next season.

"Without a doubt, without a doubt,’’ Wroten said. "I’m working hard. That’s what I want to be. That’s my mindset from here on out." The Knicks signed Wroten to get a good look at him during the summer league, and several reports have indicated that Phil Jackson is a fan. Wroten admitted that he wasn't 100 percent when he returned from his knee injury with Philly earlier in the season which would explain his poor play, so maybe he can redeem himself next season.

Kurt Rambis said Tony Wroten has "deficiencies in his injured leg."

The Knicks have already made it clear that Wroten won't play this season, but it's not exactly clear what the point guard is dealing with as he attempts to rehab and get back into playing shape. We'll keep you updated, but Wroten is obviously not fantasy relevant at this time.

Tony Wroten (knee) won't play for the Knicks during the 2015-16 season, according to head coach Kurt Rambis.

The Knicks made their signing of Wroten official on Wednesday, but Rambis said he won't play or practice with the team this season. Wroten can be ignored by fantasy owners as Summer League will be his first action as a member of the Knicks organization.

Knicks sign G Tony Wroten.

He might not be playing at all and Phil Jackson said Wroten needs a lot of medical attention. Leave him on the wire in almost all leagues.

Phil Jackson said that Tony Wroten (knee) "needs a lot of medical attention" and likely won’t play this season.

"He’s a big point guard, a tall kid that can do things," Jackson said. "Our process is going on, it’s a little underground, a little beneath the surface but this is one of our desires, that we have to have a penetrator and we have to have somebody that can handle those roles." The Knicks' plan is to evaluate Wroten during the summer league, so they're simply taking the cautious approach here. On the other hand, this is good news for the outlook of Jerian Grant and Langston Galloway for the remainder of the season.

The Knicks are unsure if Tony Wroten (knee) will play this season.

The Knicks are in the process of finalizing a two-year contract with Wroten, but don't want to rush him back as he recovers from a partially-torn ACL. While Wroten's deal isn't guaranteed for next season, the Knicks are hoping to get a good look at him in order to evaluate how he'll fit in their system. "If he’s not healthy to play, we can evaluate him over summer," interim coach Kurt Rambis said. "We see potential in him. Now we have his rights." While Wroten has upside, he isn't worth stash in any fantasy league as long as his status is so uncertain.

The Knicks and free agent guard Tony Wroten are finalizing a contract, sources told The Vertical.

It's being reported as a three-year deal, but there is some discrepancy on the length of the contract and it is likely to wind up as a two-year pact instead. Regardless, Wroten isn't a stash candidate in fantasy leagues as it's not even certain his health will allow him to play this season. He's not expected to join New York's upcoming five-game road trip.
