Dallas Mavericks guard Delon Wright took over the team’s twitter on Monday night and answered questions from fans. See the results here.

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. He could certainly be a game-changer in the playoffs. The Mavericks are on pace to qualify if the season resumes later this summer. The NBA wants to crown a champion if possible.

5 players the Mavs could have drafted over the last 10 years. Also

With the season suspended, Fox Sports Southwest has been airing games from earlier in the year. On Monday, they showed the Mavs win in Los Angeles against the Lakers from Dec. 1. In conjunction, Delon Wright took over the team’s Twitter account to answer fan’s questions. Let us take a look.

Please forgive Delon for this one. His brother Dorell Wright was teammates with Dwyane Wade for six years in Miami. That began in 2004 when Delon was 12 years old.

Fans also found out what he has been doing during the suspension.

Wright also gave Courtney Lee a shout out as the funniest Maverick and let fans know why he wears number 55.

Wright fielded other questions too, and the team posted some of his highlights from the game against the Lakers. Supporters can check it all out here.

It was a cool touch to have Delon Wright taking over the Mavericks Twitter and answering questions. Hopefully, the team explores doing this more in the future.

Next. Is Luka the NBA's best player under 25?
