Raptors Raptors interested in Brandan Wright?

Quote:
The Mavericks would like to bring Brandan Wright back to Dallas, but there are several teams interested in the high-flying, high-efficiency backup big man’s services.

According to a source, the Mavs, Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, Detroit Pistons, Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks all expressed interest in Wright during the opening hours of free agency.

Wright, like Brandon Bass and Ian Mahinmi in recent years, was a minimum-salary reclamation project whose value increased significantly during his two-year stint in Dallas. Wright, the eighth overall pick of the 2007 draft, had the league’s 20th best player efficiency rating (21.03) in a limited role last season. The 25-year-old fell out of the rotation for a stretch in the middle of the season, but he finished on a high note, averaging 11.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 24 minutes per game to help the Mavs got 15-8 down the stretch.

If it's for a vet min for sure. Raps have little room to be wasting exceptions, etc. Gray has a Player Option which he inevitably already opted in a while ago.

He had a decent season, he'll be getting way more than vet min.

Wright would be a nice pickup. Young, long, and pretty good instincts on both sides of the ball. I liked what I saw from him (in limited action) last season.

Rather not waste money considering Gray's PO, JLIII not with the team anymore and the money saved from the Bargs deal. Little wiggle room and if he commands a multi-year contract he can get that somewhere else.

That's great and all but once again - how much is all of that going to cost. He's looking for a payday. Raps don't do well in FA and have little wiggle room atm.

He finishes well around the rim and is a good pick and roll defender, but his rebounding and inside defence are not good. He's still young though, so I wouldnt mind this if its a short term deal, say 2 years, 6-8 million with the 2nd year being a team option.

Would not be an upgrade over Amir. Seems pointless.

I'd rather get Dejuan Blair or Andray Blatche if he doesn't want to stay with Brooklyn.

The team probably doesn't even have enough capspace to offer him that much.

I agree,I prefer Dejuan Blair but either over Gray. I have a Blair deal in the trade thread,check it out and give your insight whether it's fair or possible.
