Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Philadelphia 76ers exercised the third-year team options on forward Arnett Moultrie and guard Tony Wroten on Friday.

Moultrie, who is currently sidelined with an ankle injury that required surgery, appeared in 47 games last season, his rookie year, averaging 3.7 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. He is expected to be out until at least January.

Wroten was selected by Memphis with the 25th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft and acquired by the Sixers via trade in August. The 20-year-old averaged 11 points for the Sixers this preseason after scoring 10-plus points once as a rookie for the Grizzlies in 2012-13.
