After release Dominique Jones, the Dallas Mavericks are expected to sign PG Chris Wright to a 10-day contract. Wright was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in March of last year after losing control and falling during sprints at practice and continues to play through the disease that attacks the Central Nervous System. Wright says that since doctors caught the MS in the early stages, he is able to keep it under control with medication.
According to ESPN Dallas:
The Dallas Mavericks will fill their freshly-vacated 15th roster spot by calling up Iowa Energy point guard Chris Wright from the D-League, according to sources familiar with the decision.
Sources said Wright will receive a 10-day contract before Tuesday’s game at Milwaukee to fill the opening created by Saturday’s release of 2011 championship alumnus Dominique Jones.
