The Grizzlies claimed point guard Tony Wroten off waivers on Sunday.
The Grizz are doing their best to prepare for the possibility of Mike Conley leaving and that has to make fans really uneasy, but it is what it is. Wroten underwent surgery for a partially torn ACL earlier this year and had an ACL tear in high school, as the injury angle is a huge concern for him going forward. The Knicks opted to pass up on him and they’re in need of point guard solutions, and the league in general has passed up on Wroten a few times. His ability to learn the finer points of the game and improve his jump shot are going to determine if he can stick.
