Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Dallas Mavericks and the Memphis Grizzlies have agreed on a sign-and-trade for combo-guard Delon Wright. The Mavericks will send two second-round picks to the Grizzlies for Wright who will sign a three-year, $29 million contract with Dallas.
The 27-year-old was originally drafted in the 2015 NBA Draft with the 20th-overall pick by the Toronto Raptors. Wright spent three-and-a-half seasons with Toronto before being traded to Memphis, where he appeared in 26 games for them. Last season, he averaged 8.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.2 steals per a game in 75 games with the Grizzlies and Raptors.
Wright will be joining 2019 NBA Rookie of the Year Luka Doncic and All-Star Kristaps Porzingis. He will team up with Seth Curry, in the backcourt who signed a $32 million contract for four years with Dallas this offseason.
The Mavericks are led by coach Rick Carlisle and they have missed the postseason the last three seasons, compiling a 90-156 record during that span. Wright, Curry, Doncic, and Porzingis will look to restore Dallas back to their winning ways when they went to playoffs 12 years straight from 2000-12.
