Bracey
Wright
Demir Insaat Buyukcekmece Basket (BSL) signed 33-year old American guard Bracey Wright (191-87kg-84, college: Indiana). He will still stay in Turkey where he played last season at Acibadem in the TBL. In 43 games he had very impressive stats: 19.3ppg, 4.3rpg, 4.5apg and 1.5spg. Great season as he was named to Eurobasket.com All-Turkish TBL 2nd Team.
The previous (15-16) season Wright played at Pinar Karsiyaka. In 22 BSL games he recorded 13.7ppg, 3.5rpg and 2.9apg. He helped them to make it to the cup final. Wright also played 8 games in Eurocup where he averaged remarkable 16.3ppg, 4.3rpg, 3.4apg and 1.3spg. Wright also spent pre-season at Hapoel Jerusalem (Winner League) in Israel that year.
He won Israeli Premier League championship title in 2015.
Wright is quite experienced player. He has played also professionally in Belgium (Oostende), Croatia (Cedevita), France (Paris Levallois), Greece (Aris), Russia (Krasnie Krilya) and Spain (Joventut and Zaragoza).
Wright attended Indiana University until 2005 and it will be his 13th (hopefully lucky) (!!!) season as a professional player.
He could be described: (by NBADraft.TK)
Strengths: Bracey Wright is an explosive scorer with great quickness and leaping ability. He is a phenomenal athlete who could play either the point or the shooting guard. His quickness and ball handling skills give him the ability to take almost any defender to the rim. Do not be fooled by his low shooting percentage this past year either, he can hit three pointers from downtown Indianapolis. He possesses great range on his jump shot and is a great college three-point shooter, but with his range could be a great NBA three-point shooter. His low shooting percentage last year was mainly due to the fact that Indiana was flat out terrible last year. He was their only true scorer and many times he was double or even triple teamed, but he still averaged 18.5 ppg. When he is leading the team up the court on a fast break, he has the quick explosion needed to take the ball all the way, or he can stop on a dime and nail the mid-range J. Bracey is also a decent free throw shooter and knows how to get to the free throw line. An excellent run and jump style player. Along with his offensive skills, he is also a good defender. Wright plays good on the ball defense and has shown that he can force his opponent into committing turnovers.
Weaknesses: In the NBA, Wright would be an undersized two guard, only listed at 6'3 180 lbs and at times he has shown that he lacks the heart and determination to be the general on the floor for his team. He has not shown the qualities of leadership necessary to be a point guard in the NBA. Many times in big games, Wright does not show up to play and is rendered ineffective. In big games, he needs to play with more poise and heart. If Wright does choose to convert to a point guard in the NBA, he will need to fine-tune his ball handling skills and passing abilities. Wright can be a two guard in the NBA, but because he is a very streaky shooter and takes a large quantity of shots, he must learn to shoot the rock with more consistency if he wants to be anything other than a career bench warmer. The NBA has plenty of bad shooters who think that they can shoot the three. Antoine Walker
