MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Memphis Grizzlies have signed guard Andrew Harrison and center Deyonta Davis to multiyear contracts, waived guard Tony Wroten and announced the acquisition of guard Troy Daniels.

All four moves were announced Tuesday. Terms of the Harrison and Davis signings weren’t disclosed.

The Grizzlies acquired the 24-year-old Daniels from Charlotte for cash considerations as part of a sign-and-trade deal. The Hornets received a trade exception that will be available for one year.

Daniels and his representatives had tweeted over the weekend that he been acquired by Memphis, but the Grizzlies and Hornets announced the deal Tuesday afternoon. Priority Sports, which represents Daniels, tweeted that he had received a three-year contract.
