76ers Recall Tony Wroten, Kendall Marshall From D-League

The Philadelphia 76ers have recalled point guards Tony Wroten and Kendall Marshall from the D-League, the team announced Friday morning. To make room for them, the Sixers have waived point guard Phil Pressey.

Wroten and Marshall haven’t yet played this season due to recovery from ACL injuries. Wroten and Marshall tore their ACLs several days apart in January. Philadelphia added Marshall as a free agent this past summer.

Wroten is expected to make his return to the court this weekend, and Marshall is hoping to be back soon:

The Sixers are hoping the return of Wroten (and eventually Marshall) will help spark a moribund offense that ranks last in the league in offensive efficiency by a wide margin. Wroten led Philadelphia in scoring in 2014-15 at 16.9 points per game before getting injured, although he shot just 40.3 percent overall and 26.1 percent from three.

Marshall didn’t play much with the Milwaukee Bucks last season, but he was effective with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2013-14. He averaged 8.0 points and 8.8 assists while shooting 39.9 percent from three in 54 games.

The Sixers have been using T.J. McConnell and Isaiah Canaan as the primary point guards this season. Pressey also had a spot in the rotation, and he averaged 3.9 points and 3.3 assists in 12.1 minutes per game before getting waived.
