Bucks bring back forward Wright on 10-day contract
The Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday signed forward Chris Wright to a 10-day contract, his second with the team this season.
Wright averaged 6.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in two games with the Bucks in March.
The University of Dayton product played 26 minutes in Milwaukee’s 124-107 blowout loss to Sacramento on March 23, scoring nine points with four rebounds and three assists.
"I like what I saw," Bucks coach Larry Drew said after the loss to the Kings. "We were just in there talking about it. Watching Chris play, he really gives us something that we don’t have."
Wright played in 24 games with Golden State in the 2011-12 season, averaging 2.9 points and 1.9 rebounds over 7.8 minutes per game. The 6-foot-9 forward only had played more than 26 minutes in an NBA game twice prior, both coming in the final two games of his season with the Warriors.
The Bucks let D.J. Stephens go after his 10-day deal expired Friday. He played in three games with Milwaukee, averaging 2.3 points and 1.7 rebounds.
Of the three players the Bucks have signed to 10-day deals, Wright is the first to be brought back.
