PROFESSIONAL CAREER

Delon Wright just completed his fifth NBA season and his first with the Mavericks in 2019-20. He holds career averages of 7.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.0 steal and 19.8 minutes per game in 271 games (23 starts) with Toronto, Memphis and Dallas.

Wright (6-5, 185) was selected by Toronto with the 20th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. He spent his first three-and-a-half seasons with the Raptors before being acquired by the Grizzlies midway through the 2018-19 campaign. Wright was signed by Memphis and then traded to Dallas in exchange for two future second-round picks and the draft rights to Satnam Singh on July 8, 2019.

BEFORE NBA

The Los Angeles native was a standout at the University of Utah after transferring from the City College of San Francisco. Wright earned All-Pac-12 First Team and Pac-12 All-Defensive Team honors in each of his two seasons with the Utes (2014, 2015). He also became the first Utah player to win the Bob Cousy Award in 2015.

PERSONAL LIFE

Delon is the younger brother of Dorell Wright, who played 11 seasons in the NBA and was a member of the Heat’s 2006 NBA championship team. He attended Leuzinger High School (Lawndale, California), the same school that produced Russell Westbrook and his brother Dorell.
