Kings' Antoine Wright arrested for DUI
The Kings, who have a home game Saturday against Memphis, issued a statement of apology from Wright. Wright's attorney, Bill Portanova, said in the team statement that his client is cooperating fully with police in nearby Rocklin.
"I'm sorry for having gotten myself into this situation," Wright said through the team. "I sincerely apologize to my teammates and coaches, the Sacramento Kings organization, the Sacramento community and fans and my family."
Kings president of basketball operations Geoff Petrie did not say whether Wright would face a suspension, but rather that the team would wait to see the legal process out.
"We are extremely disappointed in the situation Antoine has created for himself and the organization," Petrie said. "There certainly has been no shortage of education and/or resources made available to our players in regard to these types of dangerous behaviors. We will, however, respect his right of due process at this time."
Wright has appeared in two of Sacramento's five games, but hasn't scored in averaging 1.4 minutes.
Less than a month ago, George Maloof Jr. -- brother of Kings owners Joe and Gavin Maloof and owner of the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas -- spent a night in jail after being arrested near his Las Vegas home on suspicion of drunken driving.
