The Knicks recently met with free agent guard Tony Wroten, who could replace Jimmer Fredette if the club elects not to sign Fredette to a second 10-day contract, the Daily News has learned.
Tony Wroten! We wrote about that guy waaaay back in December, if you're interested.
The 22-year-old Wroten averaged was drafted in first round (25th overall) by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2012. He averaged 16.9 points and 5.2 assists for the Sixers in 2014-15 before an ACL tear ended his season, and he played all of eight games and 144 total minutes this season before Philly cut him on Christmas Eve in perhaps the most Sam Hinkie move of all time.
The Knicks must be at least somewhat intrigued if they went through the trouble to schedule a face-to-face meeting. Jimmer has played all of 1:49 during his time in New York; would Wroten sign with a team that might not give him any minutes? He's been out of the league for two months now, so he might be that desperate.
