Wright is a very experienced player. He has played also professionally in Germany (SC Rasta Vechta), Greece (Cretan Kings), Italy (Betaland Cdo), Romania (UBT Cluj Napoca), Czech Republic (BK Pardubice, NH Ostrava and Levharti Chomutov) and NBA G League (Northern Arizona Suns).
Wright attended Austin Peay State until 2008 and it will be his tenth season in pro basketball.
His game is described as: A very quick-footed PG, he's an ideal quarterback for a run and shot game based on fast breaks. Defends very well on the perimeter, can steal lots of balls and has a good scoring range and accuracy, even from behind the 3pts arch.
