2007 Pre-Draft Scouting Report by Matthew Maurer

Assets
Extremely mobile for his size, Wright runs the court with great fluidity … Excellent help defender thanks to his long arms and lateral quickness … Does a great job of getting his body wide and establishing position in the low post … Emerging as a very good post passer … Possesses great shooting touch around the basket, he converts on hook shots and short jumpers with a soft touch … Great rebounder who uses his athleticism and long arms to obtain rebounds … Foot speed and footwork is incredibly advanced for his age … Because of this he can face the basket and get past his defender on the baseline … Recognizes double teams extremely well … He has yet to scratch the surface of his potential … Offensively Wright is an efficient player who plays to his strengths and rarely operates outside his comfort area … Moves well without the ball and is a threat to score on the quick lob pass … For a freshman, Wright’s understanding of the game is exceptional … Possesses great hands and shows no problem catching passes thrown to him into the post.

Liabilities
Must gain more upper body strength to withstand the physical play at the next level … Lacks the upper body strength to consistently finish after contact occurs … Could stand to expand his perimeter shooting, currently shows the touch needed but hasn’t developed the confidence or consistency to make shots from mid-range … Shooting mechanics could stand to be tweaked … Free throw shooting remains a work in progress, shows improvement but has yet to convert with regularity. Should focus on less motion before his release … Can get disrupted and pushed away from the basket as he doesn’t have the body strength to hold position … Back to the basket skills are still in need of refinement …
