Mavericks' Delon Wright: Goes through full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (hamstring) went through a full practice Saturday, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

A hamstring injury was limiting Wright earlier in training camp, but it seems he's now close to 100 percent. The Mavericks have a preseason game on Tuesday, and it seems likely Wright will take the floor.

Mavericks' Delon Wright: Will be limited to start camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright is dealing with a minor hamstring injury and is expected to be limited for the first few days of training camp, Dwain Price of Mavs.com reports.

Rick Carlisle described the issue as "mild", so Wright's regular-season availability doesn't appear to be in danger, but the situation is worth monitoring over the next week. Wright, who came over from Memphis this offseason, will be competition for a starting backcourt spot next to Luka Doncic.

Mavericks' Delon Wright: Could start alongside Doncic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban suggested in a recent appearance on SiriusXM NBA Radio that he expects Wright to start at point guard in 2019-20, The Dallas Morning News reports. "Delon's a downhill guy who can defend multiple positions. We'll work with him some on his shot, but he's a great finisher, he can get to the rim, he'll make the play, he helps make his teammates better, and that's what we were looking for. Because trying to get Luka [Doncic] to guard point guards is not going to work. With Jalen Brunson, he did a great job as a rookie and he'll get better, but his strength still, he's still learning to stay in front of guys. Delon is there. Delon's a passer, a creator, but now 6-foot-5 will be our smallest guy in the starting lineup."

While the lineup decisions will ultimately be up to coach Rick Carlisle, Cuban's comments intimate that the Mavericks aren't eager to install Doncic as a full-time point guard, mainly due to his deficiencies on the defensive end. With Cuban going on to suggest that the 6-foot-2 Brunson's lack of size is also a concern, Wright looks like he'll be in the driver's seat to play the majority of the minutes at point guard. While Wright's inconsistent shooting from the field and three-point range caps his scoring potential, his skills as a playmaker and the length he offers defensively could translate to some useful fantasy production. Wright already showed some intriguing potential late in 2019-20 when he received regular run with Memphis, averaging 12.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.6 steals in 30.8 minutes per contest.

Mavericks' Delon Wright: Heads to Dallas in sign-and-trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mavericks agreed Sunday to acquire Wright in a sign-and-trade deal with the Grizzlies in exchange for two second-round picks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Wright's agent, Greg Lawrence, tells Wojnarowski that his client will sign a three-year, $29 million contract.

Since Memphis had extended Wright a qualifying offer after his rookie contract expired July 1, the team retained the right to match any offer the combo guard might have received as a restricted free agent. As a workaround to the offer sheet, the Mavericks elected to work with Memphis on a compensation package for Wright, who could challenge for a starting role at either backcourt spot in 2019-20, depending on how Dallas elects to deploy rising star Luka Doncic. With Doncic expected to work between point guard and the two wing spots, Wright is expected to compete with Jalen Brunson, Seth Curry, J.J. Barea (Achilles), Dorian Finney-Smith, Justin Jackson and Tim Hardaway (lower leg) for playing time. Wright should have a safer path to minutes than most -- if not all -- of those players, as his exceptional athleticism should make him a solid fit at either backcourt spot. In 26 games with Memphis after coming over in a trade from Toronto, Wright averaged 12.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.8 three-pointers in 30.8 minutes per contest.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Becomes restricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright had the qualifying offer extended to him by the Grizzlies, making him a restricted free agent, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Wright saw his role increase dramatically once he was traded to Memphis from Toronto. Once with the Grizzlies, he averaged 12.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.6 steals in 30.8 minutes. If he remains in Memphis, his role could be reduced by the addition of Ja Morant. However, it's possible that Wright continues to make strides, as he'll be entering his age 27 season.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Could have role impacted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright's role with the Grizzlies could be impacted by the selection of Ja Morant with the No. 2 pick in Thursday's draft.

Wright came over from the Raptors as part of the Marc Gasol trade, and he fared well in 26 games for the Grizzlies, averaging 12.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.3 assists in just over 30 minutes per game. While Wright didn't shoot the ball well from three (26% 3PT), he remains a relatively intriguing longer-term -- that is, if the Grizzlies opt to bring him back as a restricted free agent. With Morant now in the fold, Wright is certainly more expendable, though he's capable of playing off the ball, so it wouldn't be overly surprising if the Grizzlies attempt to bring him back on a new deal.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Caps season with triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright scored 13 points (3-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, 11 assists and three steals in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 132-117 win over the Warriors.

The 26-year-old gave a very intriguing glimpse of his fantasy upside next season should Mike Conley get traded, although Golden State was hardly putting its best lineup on the court on the eve of the playoffs. At worst, Wright should have a significant role as a combo guard for Memphis in 2019-20.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Nears double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright amassed 15 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and a steal in 37 minutes Tuesday against Detroit.

Although Wright failed to record a triple-double for the first time in three games, he nonetheless managed a solid line in Tuesday's loss. Since joining the Grizzlies during a mid-season trade, Wright's been providing strong production as the backup for Mike Conley when Conley's been healthy. Over 24 games, including nine starts, with Memphis, Wright's averaging 12.0 points, 5.2 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 30.3 minutes per game -- stats that indicate he could be in for a larger role next year.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Second straight triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright recorded 20 points (8-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 13 rebounds, 12 assists, and one block in 42 minutes during Sunday's 129-127 overtime loss to the Mavericks.

Wright racked up his second straight triple-double while matching his career high in rebounding, this after setting career highs in scoring and dimes in Friday's win over these same Mavericks. With Mike Conley (ankle) set to potentially miss the final two games this season, Wright is likely to continue piling up the counting stats.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: First career triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright totaled 26 points (10-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 14 assists, 10 rebounds and two steals across 39 minutes in the Grizzlies' win over the Mavericks on Friday.

Wright notched his first career triple-double in Friday's win behind some impressive counting stats. The four-year NBA vet has seen his opportunity increase after coming over to the Grizzlies mid-season from the Raptors, and he has become an important part of Memphis' rotation. Don't expect this type of production from Wright regularly as his season stats are modest at best.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Logs 11 in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright contributed 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six assists, four rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 116-89 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Wright fell back to earth a bit in his second start in place of Mike Conley, but his totals weren't surprising when you consider how short-handed the Grizzlies were entering the game. As the season winds down, we should continue to see plenty of Wright in the backcourt, as both Conley and Avery Bradley are bound to be out or limited moving forward.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Leads team in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright totaled 20 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-10 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block across 35 minutes in the Grizzlies' 113-96 loss to the Clippers on Sunday.

With Jonas Valanciunas exiting the game in the third quarter due to an ankle injury and Mike Conley (ankle) missing the contest altogether, Wright parlayed his spot start into another strong line. The 26-year-old was a consistent contributor across the stat sheet during the entirety of March, finishing the month with averages of 12.1 points, 5.0 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.0 steals. Considering Conley could sit out at least another couple of games down the stretch and that Avery Bradley (lower leg) remains sidelined as well, Wright figures in for a solid allotment of playing time for what remains of the regular season.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Productive on second unit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright registered 11 points (3-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, three assists, five steals and two blocks across 28 minutes in the Grizzlies' 120-115 win over the Suns on Saturday.

Wright was stellar on the defensive end in particular, making up for some sub-par shooting. The 26-year-old continues to thrive with extended minutes in the continued absence of Avery Bradley (lower leg), although Tyler Dorsey is currently drawing the starting assignment at two-guard and also frequently making strong contributions.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Career-high 13 assists in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright recorded 18 points (8-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 13 assists, four steals, and three rebounds in 35 minutes during Monday's 115-103 win over the Thunder.

Wright started in place of Mike Conley (thigh) and finished with a career high assist total while matching his career high in steals. He has reached double figures in scoring in three straight games while combining for 27 dimes across that same stretch. Furthermore, Wright has snagged at least two steals in six of 11 appearances thus far this month.

March 25, 2019 07:56 PM
Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Draws start vs. Oklahoma City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright is starting Monday against the Thunder.

With both Mike Conley (thigh) and Avery Bradley (lower leg) out for Monday's clash, Wright will enter the starting lineup. The former first-round pick is averaging 9.6 points, 5.6 assists and 3.6 rebounds over his previous five matchups.

March 23, 2019 11:16 PM
Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Solid line in Saturday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright recorded 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists, four rebounds, and two steals in 27 minutes during Saturday's 112-99 loss to the Timberwolves.

Wright shifted back to a reserve role with Mike Conley (rest) rejoining the starting lineup after a one-game absence. Nevertheless, Wright managed to produce another well-rounded stat line, which has become the norm for him here in the month of March. Regardless of role, Wright should be expected to keep seeing ample minutes across the final nine games of 2018-19.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Coming off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright will come off the bench Saturday against Minnesota, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports.

Tyler Dorsey played himself into the starting lineup, and he'll get the nod alongside Mike Conley. As a result, Wright will come off the bench.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright will start Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Chris Herrington of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

Wright will get the start in place of Avery Bradley, who's out for at least a week with a contusion within his right shin. During his tenure in Memphis, Wright's averaged 10.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.1 steals in 27.6 minutes per contest.

Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Ties career scoring high in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright scored 25 points (9-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding four rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block in 26 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 120-111 win over the Trail Blazers.

The performance tied his career scoring high, set last season with the Raptors. Wright has only scored in double digits four times in 10 games since heading to Memphis, however, and other than nights when Mike Conley is getting a breather, the fourth-year guard ill remain a risky fantasy option.

March 3, 2019 10:56 PM
Grizzlies' Delon Wright: Stuffs stat sheet in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright provided 17 points (6-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block across 36 minutes in the Grizzlies' 99-95 loss to the Thunder on Sunday.

Wright drew the start at point guard for Mike Conley (rest) and thrived with the opportunity, checking in second in scoring to Avery Bradley for the Grizzlies on the night. The young veteran has been offering solid rebounding and assist production in his second-unit role, and he's contributed the occasional double-digit scoring effort in that capacity as well. With Memphis devoid of postseason aspirations and Conley a valued veteran who's suffered his fair share of injuries over the years, Wright could well be in line for a solid allotment of playing time down the stretch.
