McKinley Wright - Headed to pro ranks Wright signed with the Octagon Basketball agency April 22, signaling that he'll forgo an extra year of eligibility at Colorado to enter the 2021 NBA Draft.
Impact A four-year starter for the Buffaloes, Wright likely wouldn't have been able to raise his draft stock in a significant way had he elected to return to Boulder for a fifth season in 2021-22. He turned in a productive senior season, averaging 15.2 points, 5.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 32.5 minutes per game over his 32 appearances. Incoming Western Carolina graduate transfer Mason Faulkner and incoming freshmen K.J. Simpson and Julian Hammond look like the top candidates to replace Wright as the Buffaloes' starting point guard during the upcoming season.
