MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Memphis Grizzlies waived guard Tony Wroten after he played in one preseason game.

General manager Chris Wallace announced the move Friday.

The 6-foot-6, 205-pound guard played 6 minutes Thursday night in a 104-83 loss by Memphis to Atlanta.

Memphis originally drafted Wroten at No. 25 overall in 2012 after his freshman year at the University of Washington. Wroten has played in 145 games with 34 starts in four seasons in the NBA with the Grizzlies and Philadelphia.

The Grizzlies currently have 19 players on the roster.
