WASHINGTON -- The 76ers picked up the third-year options on guard Tony Wroten and power forward Arnett Moultrie on Thursday, a league source has confirmed.

Wroten was picked 25th overall by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2012 NBA draft. The Sixers acquired him this summer in a trade. His option is for $1.2 million in the 2014-15 season.  Moultrie was selected 27th by the Miami Heat in 2012 and traded to Philadelphia.  The former Mississippi State standout will make $1.13 million next season. Moultrie is out with ankle injury and won't return until January at the earliest.

The Sixers did not offer Evan Turner a fifth-year contract extension to his rookie contract by Thursday’s deadline.  The organization has until June to make him a qualifying offer. It is unlikely that he will receive a qualifying offer.
