Default What Should Happen to Antoine Wright?

Quote:
It can now be officially confirmed, Antoine Wright is deep in Jay Triano’s doghouse!

Even when up by 40 points in the fourth quarter against the New jersey Nets, Wright could not get minutes in Jay Triano’s rotation.

And as long as Weems continues to out hustle the opposition, Wright’s stay in the Raptors doghouse could be indefinite.

Did Colangelo and Triano over-estimate Wright's ability?

Should the Raptors be looking to trade Wright?

Either he's not 100% or everybody overestimated his impact. Looking back to this summer at this place you would have thought this guy was a defensive POY.

He's not that bad. He just doesn't know his role sometimes especially on offense. A better defender than our other wings.

wright was a piece thrown in to make the trade work
than carlisle said he's a hustler and his best defender and all that, and BC took the PR opportunity and we over-estimated him.

Not sure why, but he's playing badly, unless he turns around, he's deadweight (who'd want him except as expiring).

There is at least 4-5 guys that has me saying that. Some of these guys seem to be struggling to find consistency. Jack has been up and down, Beli has struggled after the first month when he shot 45% from 3, Wright has looked horrible taking bad shots and turning the ball over, Turkoglu has been up and down all season to say the least, Derozan has struggled most of the season (to be expected), Bargnani has been up and down all season as well.


Ultimately, alot of guys not playing up to their talent cosistently. Which explains alot.

His dubious offensive exploits overshadow his defense -which is overvalued to begin with IMO..

wright did call out triano to the media. Could this be JTs way to show a stance that he may only the coach but he has some say in the dressing room?


I doubt it but I hope so. Bout time JT tries to demand some respect

yeeee that makes sense. AW kinda talked shit/blamed things on triano in a couple of his post-game interviews.....that could be why he is not playing.

Seems kinda childish though

questioning your coaches job in the media is not a good thing. Esp a coach like triano who is way too mild mannered to be shooting players under the bus to the media.

If JT did it for that I appauld him

Yep, except for Bargnani. The new guys have been inconsistent and appear to me to be pressing, at least on offence. Our best shooters the last 2-3 weeks have all struggled to say the least.

The only problem with that argument is 2-3 other guys have also done that and they're playing.

you can't bench the whole team

Plus I'd i think Wright was the most vocal with it. Couple that with his shitty play its an easy bench.


JT has to try something to get the room back. I just think this has been the only big stance he has made with this team IMHO

I think Sonny was playing decent enough to not hurt the team and Wrght has got about three or four minor injuries all at once and they finally just figured he was so useless out there that they'd sit him until he's healed.

He may be benched cause he forces things way too much offensively, and Sonny kinda just goes with the flow of the game.....antoine wright literally can't dribble or do a basic crossover

Does he really force things that much? How many shots does he take? More than Beli? I don't think so. His biggest problem is that he nit only questioned the coach publicly, but probably has been somewhat destructive to team chemistry as well.

Seeing a guy in the doghouse is a positive sign. Triano is starting to do his job.

Wright should remain at the end of the bench. Weems is outplaying and so everybody else. Wright was brought in to be a good defender and hasn't showed us that. His offence isn't good either

fuck Wright. He disrespected the coach and now isn't playing. Triano may be a mild mannered guy, but i'm sure if you piss him off, he will do what he needs to do to.

Hopefully he straightens up because i think he can contribute.

there's always going to be 1 player in the coach's doghouse mainly due to the rotation and the number of players in each position available to the coach, Raptors have enough SG/SF types
wright was supposed to be here for his "defense", well, it turns out his D isn't good enough to lock a player down, the rest of the team can't run defensive rotations so it negates any D he attempts to play, his offensive percentage terrible and when he gets on the court for some reason he feels obligated to carry the ball and run the play instead of the PG and then he runs himself into shot clock problems and goes 1 on 5
he bashes the rest of his teammates for their lack of intensity and then comes on the court and shows nothing

in the end you have to realize that wright was kind of a throw-in in the hedo 4 team trade, he was just a bonus in that he was an extra body and had better abilities than most 10-day contract players, for the price he is good enough, but considering the talent on our roster, he really isn't that good
don't be surprised that once reggie evans comes back that he is the guy instead of Pops to go on the inactive list, especially now that weems has shown good abilities and marcus banks needs to be active because jose is out

glad he's in the doghouse, his future is most likely the D league and he was taking away minutes from derozan's development

as for trading him, who could possibly want a 6'5 SF that is shooting 30%?
