NBA career 編輯
Wright has appeared in thirty-nine games for the Nets this season, averaging 1.8 points, 0.8 rebounds, 0.3 assists, and 9.5 minutes per game.
Wright started the season out in the inactive list and for most of the season he stayed there. As the season wore on he started getting minutes and was a part of the rotation. He was drafted out of college for his jumpshot but is only shooting 35% from the field.
Rod Thorn admitted that Wright was not NBA ready but also added he likes what he sees and coach Lawrence Frank has begun to trust Wright with significant game minutes as the season wore on.es:Antoine Wright Antonio Burks
