MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Memphis Grizzlies have signed guard Andrew Harrison and center Deyonta Davis to multiyear contracts and have waived guard Tony Wroten.
All three moves were announced Tuesday. Terms of the Harrison and Davis signings weren't disclosed.
The Grizzlies acquired the 19-year-old Davis on the night of the draft after the Boston Celtics selected him in the second round with the 31st selection. Davis, who is 6-foot-11, averaged 7.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 18.6 minutes in his lone season at Michigan State.
Harrison, 21, averaged 18.5 points, 4.9 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 46 games this past season for the Iowa Energy, the Grizzlies' NBA Development League affiliate.
The Grizzlies acquired Harrison the night of the 2015 draft after the Phoenix Suns selected the 6-6 guard from Kentucky in the second round with the 44th pick.
Memphis had claimed Wroten after he was waived by the New York Knicks last month. The 23-year-old has played in 145 NBA games.
