"Wright, the Texas A&M product considered the “bright spot of camp’’ by coach Rick Carlisle, has obviously earned rotation minutes. Wright, who came to Dallas in the Kidd trade, isn’t locked into the first-team job by any means; there will be a temptation for Carlisle to rely on a more “known quality’’ like Jason Terry and Jerry Stackhouse.
But. … we can hope, can’t we? Wright is 6-7, is athletic, is a finisher, has handles, can play a little defense and has been working on his shot. Stack and Jet off the bench would make that group special. And one or both of them might still be on the floor at game’s end.
But an injection of something different from years past at the 2? Worth a shot."
His line for the night?
9 points (4-4), 4 assts, 3 steals and 3 boards.
Wright is a guy I have always liked, and thought he was the bright spot in the Jason Kidd trade. I said last year that we will look back and say that Wright was a HUGE steal in that trade...
Does Dallas finnally have a legit SG?
