Wright was waived by the Clippers on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. The veteran signed a camp deal with the Clippers last month but will not crack the final roster when the regular season begins. Wright, 30, began last season in China before joining the Heat in April, and he may have to head overseas again if he's unable to find another interested NBA team.
Wright signed a training camp contract with the Clippers on Thursday, Dan Woike of Orange County Register reports. After spending 11 years in the NBA, Wright's 2015-16 season was spent overseas with the Beikong Fly Dragons of the Chinese Basketball Association. He'll attempt a return to the Sates for the upcoming year, but considering he's on a camp deal and the Clippers already have 15 guaranteed contracts, it's highly unlikely Wright makes the regular season roster. The 30-year-old will likely have to go back overseas to find a guaranteed contract.
Wright (coach's decision) didn't play in Tuesday's 102-96 overtime win over the Raptors in Game 1 of the series. Wright signed with the Heat just one day before the regular season concluded, which hasn't provided him with much time to establish himself as a rotation member. He'll likely only see the floor in blowout games throughout the playoffs.
Wright will be available for Tuesday's game against the Pistons, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Though Wright officially joined the team only earlier in the day, he'll likely find a small role off the bench Tuesday with Justise Winslow sitting out. If the Heat opt to rest any regulars for Wednesday's regular season finale, Wright could be set for increased minutes.
Wright officially signed with the Heat on Tuesday. Wright had been awaiting clearance from FIBA after returning from China, but everything is now official and he'll join the Heat on Tuesday. Considering he hasn't had much time to practice with the team, Wright is unlikely to make much of an impact over the final two games of the regular season, but he could be a key contributor in limited minutes off the bench during the playoffs.
