Was a restricted free agent and an unlikely option up until a couple of hours ago, but with the Suns’ move to sign Bucks’ target Tyson Chandler, it seems likely that their rights to Wright were renounced.
Wright has been criminally under-appreciated for years, and in spite of generally performing very well, has found himself bounced from one team to the next in trade after trade.
A good but not necessarily dominant rebounder (8.2 per 36), what Wright offers is rim protection at 2.2 blocks per 36 through seven seasons. A career offensive rating of 125 indicates he’s far from a slouch on that end too.
