    Notes:
    2007: Selected by Golden State in 1st round (8th overall) of the NBA Draft...2011: Traded to New Jersey with Dan Gadzuric for Troy Murphy and a 2nd round pick, Feb. 23rd; Signed with Dallas to a two-year deal worth $1.9 million, Dec. 9th...2013: Re-signed with Dallas to a two-year deal worth $10 million, July 25th...2014: Traded to Boston in a five-player deal, Dec. 18th...2015: Traded to Pheonix for a first round draft pick, Jan. 9th.

    Wright is one of the top players at his position in this draft...Runs the floor extremely well for a man his size...Is very athletic and is freakishly long...Fierce defender in the paint...Impressive interior scorer and also does an excellent job rebounding the ball...Outstanding footwork and speed...Wright also has tremendous knowledge of the game and understands the finer points of the sport...Has solid hands and strong ball-handling skills...Definitely needs to add some quality weight...Lacks upper body strength...Needs to improve his jump shot...Free throw shooting is another area where Wright needs to find some consistency.
