   .....Third Prize Is You're Fired
2010-10-06

If they're not doing so already, the Kings might be regretting signing Antoine Wright to a guaranteed contract. Nothing against Antoine, who's a reasonable player, but the calibre of training camp signings that the Kings have made make him largely redundant. [...]

   Chinese Basketball Association Imports, 2010/11, Again
2011-03-13

Antoine Wright - 21 games, 34.5 mpg, 21.3 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.4 spg, 0.8 bpg, 2.6 TOpg, 45% FG, 39% 3PT, 73% FT

[Ricky] Davis arrived in China stating his intentions to win the championship, the MVP, and the scoring title. He did none of the three, and was released after 9 underwhelming games. In his short time with the team, he also complained about his role on the team and his supposed lack of touches, and moaned about his team mates, as did they about him. The China Buckets Experience did not go well. [Davis has since joined French team Roanne, who were league leaders upon his arrival. He scored 11 points on debut, then went scoreless over 47 minutes in his next two games, followed by back to back 12 point performances. Roanne are now fifth.] He was replaced by Wright, the ex-Raptors and Nets wingman who started the season on a guaranteed contract with the Sacramento Kings, but who didn't make it out of November, due in no small part to a DUI arrest earlier that month. Neither Wright or Moiso are exactly noted for their consistent production; in particular, Wright has scored either above 18 or below 7 in every game. But they've been productive, and with one of the best domestic player cores in the CBA - including 6'1 guard Xue Huefeng, who leads the league in steals at 4.1 per game - Jiangsu are the best of the rest.

   Chicago's Last Resort Offseason Plan That Still Manages To Avoid Signing Joe Johnson
2010-06-14

Antoine Wright - Wright is much like Bogans, even down to the occasional delusions of offensive grandeur that the Bobcats-era Bogans often succumbed to. Wright is bigger than Bogans, but more of a forward, without the handle or jumpshot befitting of a two guard. This wouldn't be a problem if he was aware of it. But he's not.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
