A 6’9″ forward, Wright spent all four years of his college career at Georgia Tech and had a huge season as a senior, averaging 17.4 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 2.3 APG, 1.6 BPG, and 1.5 SPG with a .532/.414/.658 shooting line in 25 games (35.3 MPG).
Wright was named the ACC Player of the Year and made the ACC’s All-Defensive team. After going undrafted, he represented the Pelicans in the Las Vegas Summer League last month, appearing in five games for New Orleans.
Wright’s Exhibit 10 contract could theoretically provide a path to a spot on Los Angeles’ 15-man regular season roster. However, it’s more likely he’ll end up being an affiliate player for the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario, L.A.’s G League team. He could also be in the mix for a two-way contract, though the Clips have Jay Scrubb filling one of their two-way slots and may be eyeing Amir Coffey for the other — Coffey is still a restricted free agent for the time being.
