In kind of surprising news, the Bucks announced tonight that they have signed forward Chris Wright to a multi-year contract. In this instance, "multi-year" means that Wright has been signed for the remainder of this season and to a non-guaranteed deal for next season. Wright had served two separate 10-day stints, the latter which expired after last night's game in Toronto. Wright averaged 6.0 points, 2.1 rebounds, and a handful of SUPER SWEET DUNKS in just over 15 minutes a game in his brief action with the team.
Though the deal isn't totally binding, the move is an intriguing one. Wright--who likely projects to be a small forward--won't find a ton of minutes next year behind Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Carlos Delfino, who should return from his foot injury SOMETIME this offseason. It's tough to predict what this deal could turn out be for Wright, but it wouldn't be shocking if his summer included a trip to Las Vegas with the Summer League team. If that goes well, perhaps Wright will be able to stick around and find some spare minutes during the year.
Ultimately this isn't huge news, especially considering that a sale of the franchise is on the horizon in the same summer where the Bucks are poised to draft a very special talent in June. Nevertheless, a good guy by all accounts gets to stick around and live his dream out for another year. Also, DUNKS.
