According to multiple sources, the Sixers have acquired 20 year old point guard Tony Wroten from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for a future second-round pick.

This is a great move by Hinkie, definitely better than a Chris Duhon signing. Wroten is almost a clone of our new PG, Michael Carter-Williams. Neither have a reliable jump shot. But Wroten has amazing athleticism  and still a ton of potential at only 20 years old.

Wroten will not help the Sixers win games, which is key. He still has to develop, much like the rest of the Sixers current roster. Plus, acquiring a young athletic point guard for only a second-round pick is a steal. Hinkie acquired enough draft picks this past draft anyways. It will be interesting to see if Wroten is brought in to start or just a backup point guard, what do you guys think?

The Tankadelphia train is gearing up to go! It’s Wroten in stone! HA!
