    Delon Wright struggled in his 11 minutes on Tuesday, hitting just one of his three shots for a stat line of two points, one rebound, one assist, one steal, and one block in a 119-104 loss to the Thunder.

    Okay, the steal and block are nice for just 11 minutes. Also, it's a positive just to see him get a start after his hamstring issue. Look for the Mavs to ramp up his minutes during the preseason (no starters played in the second half in this one). Hopefully he stays quiet enough that he's available in the late rounds of fantasy drafts where he could be a huge steal.

    Delon Wright had his first full practice on Saturday after being sidelined for a bit with a hamstring ailment.

    Wright might fly under the radar in fantasy drafts but he is currently projected to start for the Mavs and one should note that he put up top-65 value over the last two months of the season for the Grizzlies last year in a 31.1 minute per game role averaging 12.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.8 triples.

    Tim Hardaway Jr was a full participant while J.J. Barea went through most of Tuesday's practice for the Mavs.

    Also notable is that Delon Wright (hamstring) was a limited participant. Hardaway and Barea are both coming off major lower-body injuries but look to be healthy as camp opened. Hardaway will have to prove he is back to form after Rick Carlisle mentioned that the starting lineup will be fluid outside of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.

    Mavericks guard Delon Wright has a minor hamstring ailment and his participation will be limited in the first 3-4 days of training camp.

    Wright is the expected starting point guard for the Mavericks. The team is taking precautions, but this does not sound serious. Wright could be a value pick in the seventh or eighth round of standard fantasy drafts.

    The Mavs have finalized the trade for Delon Wright which sends two second-round draft picks to Memphis along with the draft rights to Satnam Singh.

    Wright's value in the upcoming season is tough to nail down as he may or may not be the Mavs' starting point guard. He often played around 20 minutes per game with the Raptors where he showed promise but didn't get enough run to really matter in standard leagues. When he was shipped to the tanking Grizzlies, he played over 30 minutes per game and was worth starting for his 5.3 asssists and 1.6 steals per game. Watch the news in training camp on Wright.

    The Mavs and Grizzlies have agreed to a sign-and-trade for Delon Wright, with Memphis receiving two second-round picks per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Wright has agreed to a three-year deal worth $29 million. It's been rumored that the Mavs would submit an offer sheet but this arrangement gives them far more certainty than waiting for the Grizzlies to make a decision on matching. Wright is headed for a sizable role on a Mavs team that doesn't have a ton of guard depth, and there's a chance he can start at point guard. His length and versatility are certainly attractive and Wright is very much in play as a pick in standard-league drafts. He was able to post top-50 numbers down the stretch in Memphis and should be able to threaten top-100 value with 25 mpg or more.

    Brad Townsend of the Dallas News reports that the Mavs still intend to offer sheet Delon Wright, and that it could happen as soon as Saturday night.

    Mark Cuban said the Mavs were done in free agency unless a good opportunity presented itself, and one imagines that taking a run at Wright qualifies. Dallas could still use a point guard and Wright might be the best man still on the market. Memphis is allegedly planning to match anything "reasonable" so we'll see what happens. The Grizzlies will have 48 hours to match once an offer sheet is signed. Wright would be looking at an easy 20-plus mpg in Dallas should he end up with the Mavs.

    Brad Townsend of the Dallas News reports that the Mavs have increased their interest in Delon Wright and plan to give him an offer sheet.

    Wright would be a wonderful addition to the Dallas backcourt, giving the team added playmaking, length and defensive versatility. He may not function as the primary ball-handler but there is an outside chance that Wright could start at point guard should he end up in Dallas. Wright finished last season with a top-50 stretch and flourished in extended minutes, so fantasy owners might want to be rooting for an offer sheet to get him out from under Ja Morant in Memphis. ESPN's Tim MacMahon is hearing that the Grizzlies would match any "reasonable" offer on Wright, however, so the Mavs might need to get very aggressive.

    Darren Wolfson is reporting that the Wolves have "inquired" about Delon Wright.

    It was reported earlier today that the Mavs are interested in Wright, and it appears that his market is picking up as big fish are picked off the free agent board. Minnesota is in the market for some long-term answers at point guard and Wright would be a versatile addition if they could swing it.

    Ian Begley of SNY is reporting that the Mavs are one of the teams with strong interest in RFA Delon Wright.

    The Grizzlies have added some significant salary this offseason and drafted Ja Morant to be the point guard of the future, leading some to question how far they'll go to retain Wright. Wright closed last season with a top-50 push and has a tremendously interesting stat set for fantasy purposes, so whether or not he winds up in Memphis fantasy owners are just hoping he gets something like 25 mpg. He'd be a nice snag for any team looking to pick up a versatile guard.

    The Grizzlies will extend a qualifying offer to Delon Wright, making him a restricted free agent.

    Wright posted top-50 value over the last month of the season, and Mike Conley's departure should open up some playing time even with Ja Morant arriving. Wright is versatile enough to factor into the rotation at multiple positions and should be looking at quality minutes no matter what, even if he won't be looked at to handle the bulk of the point guard work. Assuming he does stay with Memphis, there's definite sleeper potential for a guy that figures to be overlooked because of Morant.

    Delon Wright triple-doubled in Wednesday's win over the Warriors, scoring 13 points on 3-of-7 shooting (including three treys) with 11 rebounds, 11 assists and three steals over 37 minutes in the season finale.

    Wright was high on our sleeper lists and injuries really knocked him off course early on a deeper Raptors squad. We all moved quickly during the trade deadline to add him and he paid folks off, returning top-50 value over the last month of the season. It'll be interesting to see how the Grizzlies fit him in next to Mike Conley next year.

    Delon Wright shot 4-for-10 from the field and 7-for-8 from the line for 15 points with nine boards, two assists and one steal in 37 minutes in a loss to the Pistons on Tuesday.

    Wright, who has been a top-15 player over the last week, had one of his below-average games on Tuesday, which was still pretty impressive. The Grizzlies are in full on tank mode and Wright is killing it with his opportunity. Trot him out there for the finale on Wednesday night.
