Delon Wright 2019-2020 Outlook

Mavs won the game so we can't neither criticize coach decisions
he's the best basketball player in the team behind Doncic and Porzingis
but Carlisle doesn't like him at all, so this is an easy drop
Maybe he can bounce back before the trade deadline if Mavs will land CP3
OKC should be perfect for him

I watched the game. Just an outlier. First unit was struggling, and Mavs second unit found more success offensively (albeit against mostly the Lakers' second unit). Wright's defense looked good as usual, and his offense looked better than usual. Made some really impressive, tough shots, and also uncharacteristically hit three threes. So Carlisle gave him more run than usual, and he kept playing well the rest of the game. Finney-Smith in particular lost some playing time to accommodate this. Only 21 min. But Finney-Smith's typically a consistent, solid real-life performer, so he'll probably be back to his normal 26-27 per game.

I drafted Wright and have watched almost all Mavs games since I own Doncic too. I've dropped him 3-4 times this season. Someone just picked him up and I feel a bit bummed. But when I look at the entire season so far and consider all the reasons he's unfortunately been stuck in this 22 mpg second unit role - I don't expect things to change going forward

any chance he'll be traded at some point?
he could be great in a team that let him play 35 minutes per game

 

I don't see why the Mavs would trade him, they are pretty much using him as a 3 and D guy alongside Doncic and giving him a secondary playmaking role. He's on a team friendly contract. Maybe if they try and make a move for an all-star guard like Beal or Dlo and throw him in, but i'd be surprised.

He's a good player but Mavs use him at the end of the bench 
he could easily be a nice starter in some other team
