Grizzlies recall Keyon Dooling from D-LeaguePosted by Inside Hoops
The Memphis Grizzlies have recalled guards Keyon Dooling and Tony Wroten from the NBA Development League’s Reno Bighorns, the team announced today. Both players were assigned to Reno on April 6.
Making his first career D-League assignment, Dooling (6-3, 196) recorded six points and two steals in 26 minutes in the Bighorns’ regular season finale last night against the Canton Charge. The 32-year-old logged two minutes in his Grizzlies debut on April 3 at Portland after signing with Memphis as a free agent the same day.
The 13-year veteran owns NBA career averages of 7.0 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists on .415 shooting in 19.5 minutes in 722 games (86 starts) for the Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, New Jersey Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics and Memphis Grizzlies.
In his fourth D-League stint this season, Wroten (6-6, 208) poured in a career-high 30 points and eight assists with just one turnover in 37 minutes last night in the Bighorns’ season finale. The 19-year-old posted 17.0 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists on .415 shooting in 26.5 minutes in 11 games (three starts) with Reno this season.
Drafted by Memphis in the first round (25th overall) of the 2012 NBA Draft after one season at the University of Washington, the Seattle native has averaged 2.7 points and 1.3 assists in 8.0 minutes in 33 games for the Grizzlies during his rookie season.
Both players will join the Grizzlies tonight, as Memphis finishes its three-game West Coast road trip at 5 p.m. CT against the Sacramento Kings at Sleep Train Arena.
