Any word on what is going on with him? Do we even have a chance at retaining him? I know the big fish have to sign first but i wouldn't mind seeing him come back. Then we can look to aquiring another Big and upgrade the PG positions through trade(s) and exemptions, and not have to worry about the SG/SF positions so much. What will it take $$ wise to re-sign him in this climate?

He's gone brother.

DeMar, Sonny, Turk and Belinelli are going to be the guys at the 2 and 3.

There is no such thing as cheap free agent this summer. Wright has been a starter for two teams now and certainly wont be cheap. Im assuming he is looking for more than we gave Amir. And might even get it if he waits till all the teams withcap space become desperate.

resigning Amir was imperative, but Wright is rather optional. If you give him $$ now it may make the difference between going over lux tax or not.

But I would appreciate signing him for anything under $2.5M per

He's certainly not worth anything close to +6M ....
I wouldn't mind him staying, but he needs to come cheap or reasonable price .. $3m to $4m

I would be happy to see this guy gone, he talks way to much junk and can't back it up

he is a inconsistent shooter and a over rated defender, I would rather have sonny play over him who is calm and hits his mid ranger and doesnt force his offense plus the fact that sonny can go from guarding the 1, to the 2 and 3, quite frankly just a better player, don't want see sonny fighting for minutes against wright

I totally agree. Rather Sonny than Wright. And as I said Wright is going to want a big pay day. Im sure he wont sign for 2-3 mil.

I would resign him for around $2million or so. Bellenelli is just a liability if you ask me + should be traded if Wright does return

No i think he's gone for sure. He doesn't seem to like the team or the coach's mentality, and wants more playing time. He's attracting some interest from Boston (read somewhere a few days ago on Hoopshype)

I can really see him as a Celtic...trash talker with good D.

True, he's one those players you hate if you play against him. Perfect match for the Celtics.

A solid player, he's redundant and unnecessary on this team at this point though. Not a guy you want to carrying a significant load on a rebuilding team but he's a nice piece on a contending team.
