Rotoworld's Steve Alexander analyzes Delon Wright's outlook and explains why he's a rebound candidate after a disappointing year with Dallas.
STEVE ALEXANDER: Delon Wright played for the Dallas Mavericks last year and was, to put it bluntly, a fantasy bust. There were expectations that were kind of high on him coming into the season, but he got stuck behind Luka Doncic, never got into a flow in Dallas, didn't really do much of anything, and really was cut from a lot of rosters after he was drafted kind of heavily before the season started.
But he is now in Detroit, and the Detroit Pistons' backcourt is wide open. Delon Wright figures to have a huge role. Derrick Rose is often injured, and there's a big hole or Delon Wright to fill in this year. Now, his preseason numbers haven't been great-- 7 points, 2.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.5 steals, and a three-pointer per game-- but he does do a little bit of everything, and he did a little bit of everything this preseason.
If his role in Detroit is as big as we think it's going to be-- the steals should be there, there should be some decent blocks from a guard, he'll hit three-pointers, he'll get assists, he'll even get some rebounds. Delon Wright is a guy that you can take at the end of your draft, and he can get you a lot of stats.
