Age: 23 (Senior) Draft Range (Compilation of 6 Draft Express, ESPN, CBSSports, and NBADraftNet mock drafts):High: 22
Mock Drafts Projecting to Grizzlies: 0/6 Take him: Wright won the Bob Cousy Award for best collegiate point guard after averaging 14.5 points per game, 5.1 assists per game and 4.9 rebounds per game. Three-point shooting improved from 22% to 36% from his junior to senior year. Excellent point guard defender, and uses length to create ball pressure. Would fit alongside the smaller Mike Conley in a similar role to Nick Calathes. Can run an offense. Big enough to work defensively as two-guard.
Don't take him: Not a great shooter, and has poor pull-up jumper - a must for current NBA point guards. Much older than most players, as he went from junior college to playing to years at Utah. Grizzlies don't have a need at point guard, and Wright can't shoot well enough yet to play two-guard on offense. Notes: Wright worked out with the Grizzlies. Was on both All-Pac 12 and All-Defensive Pac-12 teams. First Utah player to make two All-Pac 12 teams. Is the younger brother of Dorrell Wright. He has braces at age 23.
