Magic Interested In Brandan Wright
The Orlando Magic are showing interest in Dallas Mavericks big man Brandan Wright.
“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,” writes Tim McMahon of ESPN Dallas.
Wright, 25, once labeled a bust, showed promise in Dallas last season, averaging 8.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 18.0 minutes per game. Wright show 59.7% from the field.
McMahon points out the Mavericks “Mavs own Wright’s Early Bird rights, which would allow them to exceed the salary cap to sign him to a multi-year deal worth up to 104.5 percent of the average player salary (more than $5 million per year).”
