Jimmer To Be Replaced By Tony Wroten
The New York Daily News is reporting that, the New York Knicks have interview guard Tony Wroten to replace Jimmer Fredette after his 10-day contract is up on Thursday.
Wroten is a 6'6 guard that is coming off a season ending knee surgery from last January. The Philadelphia 76ers waived him on Dec. 24th. He was originally selected 25th overall by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2012 NBA draft. He is a very physical defender, and can is a big body guard that can create for himself of the dribble. This is something the Knicks thought they were getting from Jerian Grant, but the rookie hasn't been able to consistently carve out minutes for himself.
Jimmer has only played two minutes since being brought up to the Knicks from Westchester.
