The Dallas Mavericks acquired Delon Wright via a sign-and-trade in July 2019. He was a restricted free agent. The Mavs gave the Grizzlies two second round picks to secure his services. They immediately signed Wright to a three-year deal worth north of $28 million.
Most thought the 27-year-old would be starting for the Mavericks next to Luka Doncic in the backcourt. That has not happened, but Wright makes a massive nightly impact. He has increased his shooting efficiency and is the team’s best perimeter defender.
Wright creates havoc with his defense.
