Former University of Dayton forward Chris Wright has survived the first round of cuts with the Golden State Warriors. Wright, an undrafted rookie free agent, signed a training camp contract with Warriors several weeks ago.
Wright is 6-foot-8 and played four seasons at Dayton. He graduated from the school this month. This past fall, he was selected by the Maine Red Claws in the first round of the NBA D-League draft.
Wright played four games with Red Claws before getting called up to the Warriors. He averaged 17 points and 10.8 rebounds in the D-League. If he fails to make the Warriors roster, he will return to Maine.
