They could be saying hello to Brandan Wright.
ESPN.com’s Marc Stein reports that Wright tops the list of bargain-priced big men the Mavs are courting in free agency. The 6-foot-10, 210-pound Wright was the eighth overall pick in the 2007 draft, but he’s averaged only 5.4 points and 3.0 rebounds in 114 career games.
This would the epitome of taking a no-risk shot on a talented young player, much like the Mavs did years ago with Brandon Bass. Wright’s career has been derailed by injuries, but he’s an athletic shooter who could be an offensive-minded backup for Dirk Nowitzki.
