2012 NBA Draft Results: Tony Wroten Selected By Grizzlies With No. 25 Pick

With the No. 25 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Memphis Grizzlies selected Tony Wroten from Washington. Wroten is the second Husky to go in the first round as the Raptors picked up Terrence Ross at No. 8.

Wroten is a promising combo guard who came into college as one of the most touted prospects in the country. He figures to at least audition at back-up point guard by Mike Conley at point guard, and could make O.J. Mayo, a restricted free agent, expendable. That said, he's young and could need time to get up to speed. (He has no problem actually playing with speed.)

Memphis was rumored to be interested in John Jenkins, who went No. 23 to Atlanta.
