Brandan Wright Tweets On Vince Carters' Departure

The Dallas Mavericks bench has been one of the best in the league over the last couple of seasons. A big reason for the great production was because of the duo of Brandan Wright and Vince Carter, who have a few things in common.

Both joined the team during the lockout shortened 2011-2012 season, both came out of the University of North Carolina, and both made a living finishing above the rim. During their three seasons together, they’ve been able to become a great pick-n-roll duo off of the Mavs bench.

In an unsuspected move, the Memphis Grizzlies were able to pry Vince Carter away from the Dallas Mavericks, signing him to a 3-year, $12 million deal.

Not too long after the deal was announced, Wright took to Twitter to express his feelings.

We can assume this has to do with the news of Carter’s departure to Memphis.

While Wright is losing his pick-n-roll partner, the team as a whole is losing one of its better players and leaders.
