Mavericks Re-Sign Forward Brandan Wright
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — The Dallas Mavericks announced on Thursday they have resigned forward Brandan Wright. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though the deal is reported to be for two years and $10 million.
In two season with the Mavericks, Wright has appeared in 113 games. The 6-foot-10 forward started 16 games during the 2012-13 season, averaging 8.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks while shooting .597 from the field.
The Mavericks owned Wright’s Early Bird Rights, meaning the team was allowed to exceed the salary cap to re-sign him.
“I’m looking forward to getting the bad taste out of our mouths from not making the playoffs last year,” Wright told DallasBasketball.com. “I’m blessed to be back!”
Wright played one season at the University of North Carolina and was named Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Year and All-ACC Second Team. He was drafted eighth overall by the Charlotte Bobcats in the 2007 NBA Draft, but was acquired by Golden State in a draft-day trade.
