Minny reassigns Wright to development league

MINNEAPOLIS -- With an overflow at point guard, the
Minnesota Timberwolves reassigned Bracey Wright to the Florida
Flame of the NBA Development League on Tuesday.

Wright began the season with the Flame and was recalled on Jan.
10. He made his debut on Jan. 24 and averaged 3.0 points and 4.0
minutes in two appearances.
Last week's seven-player trade with the Boston Celtics brought
the Timberwolves yet another point guard in Marcus Banks, who had
an impressive debut on Monday night against his former team with 20
points and six assists.
Though Wright played shooting guard in college at Indiana, the
Wolves see him as a point guard in the NBA. But with Banks, Marko
Jaric, Troy Hudson and Anthony Carter already on the roster, there
was no room for Wright.
Coach Dwane Casey elected to send their second-round draft pick
to the NBDL to get more playing time. He has averaged 21.1 points
and 3.9 rebounds in 16 games for the Flame this season.
