NBA Comparison: N/A

Strengths: Wright is a strong guard at 6'1, and possesses athleticism, a quick first step and excellent footwork with and without the ball in his hands ... He changes directions very smoothly and has great speed in transition where he shows good vision and an ability to finish at the rim with either hand after contact ... Even at high speed he always seems to be under control and poised ... Shows a nice touch with his runner in the lane ... His outside game is average, not great but not terrible in terms of percentages (33% from 3) ... His clean shooting release and form bode well for gradual improvement ... When his feet are set, he looks comfortable shooting from three point range off spot up situations, as well as pulling up off the dribble inside the arch ... Always active, Wright moves well without the ball using screens to free himself up ... Defensively, his 1.5 steals per game are a result of his quickness and high activity level ... Displays high intensity on and off the ball

Weaknesses: Wright has a few question marks concerning his ability to make the transition to the next level- primarily his ability to run a team and play the point guard position for extended minutes ... He hasn't proven to be a full time playmaking point guard yet playing in a system that stresses ball movement and constant motion ... He lacks advanced ball handling moves, which limits what he can do in terms of playmaking and creating for himself ... It would be in his best interest to continue to improve his three point percentage, as his point guard skills alone won't get him to the next level ... Playing the 2 at the next level will not be a likely option at his size - 6'1...

Overall: Not much to dislike about Chris Wright's game ... Physically he's strong and athletic, shows a promising outside game and can get to the rack with a quick first step... Defensively he's quick and strong enough to guard NBA point guards... Only time will tell if he can be a true point guard at the next level but if he continues to improve his outside stroke, his overall efficiency as a player should get him plenty of looks as a second round flyer...
