I really like Wright’s potential as a shooting guard in the NBA. Reminds me of a young Aaron Afflalo. Lanky, but has a great offensive skill set. Scores the ball extremely well, and plays solid defense on and off-ball. Doesn’t shoot the long ball fairly well, he must add that to his game to be able to get more minutes in any team’s rotation. I think he’ll end up in the middle of the first round but could fall into the second round if teams don’t like the risk of giving him guaranteed money.
