Cuban on Chris Wright: 'Fact he has MS is irrelevant'

SAN ANTONIO – Chris Wright was being modest when he called himself a “good story.”

Wright’s fight to make the NBA despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a year ago is a great story. That story, however, has nothing to do with the Mavericks’ decision to sign Wright to a 10-day deal.

“Chris obviously is mentally tough,” owner Mark Cuban wrote in an email. “But more importantly he is a good PG. We think he has a shot to be good in the NBA, so we wanted to give him a shot. The fact that he has MS is irrelevant. He can play.”
