Wright making the right moves
Former UA basketball player Michael Wright is making some noise again back in the United States.
Playing in the States for the first time since playing in Poland, Wright is playing for the San Antonio Spurs in Shaw‚s Pro Summer League in Boston.
The 39tth pick by the New York Knicks in 2001 is getting the minutes for the Spurs and is making the most of his opportunity.
Wright and the Spurs played the Orlando Magic yesterday on ESPN.
