Mavericks Sign Chris Wright To 10-Day Contract

12:50pm: The Mavs have officially signed Wright to a 10-day contract, according to a team release.

WEDNESDAY, 7:52am: Mavs GM Donnie Nelson tells Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he signed his portion of Wright's contract on Tuesday. Wright is expected to officially sign and finalize the deal today, says Price (Twitter links).

SUNDAY, 6:53pm: The Mavericks are set to sign guard Chris Wright to a 10-day contract this week, according to Marc Stein of (on Twitter).  Wright will take the place of the recently waived Dominique Jones on the Mavs' roster.

Wright, 23, was a standout at Georgetown but injuries slowed him down along the way with the most notable being a broken bone in his left hand during his senior year.  The 6'1" point guard would then travel overseas to Turkey before landing with the D-League's Iowa Energy this season.

Wright has been amongst the most talked about players in the D-League this year and has been connected to several teams looking for a fill-in at guard.  In 2012/13, Wright averaged 15.5 points, 7.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game for the Energy.

The Mavs' decision to waive Jones came as a surprise last week but it is believed that they cut him loose over his unwillingness to go to the D-League.  Jones has only seen time in five games for the Mavericks in this calendar year.
