Dallas Mavericks: Delon Wright shows off his style
Dallas Mavericks guard Delon Wright is one of the best dressers on the team. To celebrate his 28th birthday, the Mavs showed off a few of his looks.
The Dallas Mavericks acquired Delon Wright in the summer of 2019 via a sign-and-trade. He was coming off a short but successful stint with the Memphis Grizzlies. The Mavs inked him to a new three-year deal.
His first season in Dallas has been hit and miss. Many expected him to start and take a lion’s share of the minutes in the backcourt next to Luka Doncic. That has not happened. Wright has only made five starts this season. He averages just 21.7 minutes per over his 65 games.
It is difficult to say Wright has been a disappointment. He is setting new career-highs in field goal and 3-point percentage. Wright also has the best per-36 minute rebound and assist numbers of his five seasons in the NBA. The Mavericks have a deep backcourt and value floor spacing over Wright’s defense next to Doncic.
Delon Wright celebrated his 28th birthday on April 26. The Mavericks sent out well wishes on Twitter.
They also shared a few photos of Wright’s pregame styles. Fans can check that out here.
More playing time?
It will be interesting to see how it plays if the season resumes this summer. Jalen Brunson had season-ending shoulder surgery. That means more playing time for Seth Curry, J.J. Barea, or Wright. Will one of the three takeover Brunson’s role or will coach Rick Carlisle split the minutes depending on the matchup?
That will be a key spot in the playoffs. The Mavs need steady production. Hopefully, someone steps up and becomes the go-to guy. Stay tuned on that.
Sending well wishes to everyone right now. Hopefully, you are staying safe. Be smart and listen to directives from public health officials, so basketball and normal life can return in short order.
