We're counting down the most valuable assets on the Milwaukee Bucks roster. With three votes in the books, LVA O.J. Mayo and The Ghost of Carlos Delfino are now joined by Chris Wright, he of the non-guaranteed contract, and a player whose time on the roster isn't expected to last much longer.
Wright's selection would seem to indicate that Bucks fans, or at least those enlightened few who frequent our humble website, see at least some raw performance value in each of the remaining players. That is, despite the fact that even in real life Wright can be cut from the roster at no cost to the team, voters here elected to leave him unprotected in our fantasy expansion draft over more expensive players like Ersan Ilyasova and Zaza Pachulia.
Such a decision can (and likely will) be debated, but one of the premises--that Wright is likely to be less productive on the court than any of those other guys--definitely seems sound. Wright wowed Bucks fans with some ferocious dunks and flashes of athletic defense last season, but that was about it. A perimeter player mostly lacking perimeter skills, Wright's lack of outside shooting and limited ball-handling ability puts him deep on the depth chart, and even if he stuck on the roster this season, there are other players with higher priority for minutes and development attention.
It's likely we've seen the last of Chris Wright in a Bucks uniform during a regular-season game. We'll always have that awful, awful year, though. Best of luck, Chris.
