Sacramento Kings get a mentor in Antoine Wright

The Kings are expected to sign Antoine Wright to a one-year deal on Friday, according to Tim Cowlishaw of the Dallas Morning News. Wright averaged 6.5 points and 2.8 rebounds in 67 games with the Raptors during the 2009-10 season.


HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: He's the ideal mentor.

Last year, Antoine Wright was a bright spot for the disappointing Toronto Raptors. He consistently defended, knocked down a few jump shots, and won Coach Jay Triano over with his toughness and work ethic.

Wright will do the same for a young, talented Sacramento squad. He'll model professionalism and contribute on-court, too.

At one year for what was the veteran's minimum, this was a smart pick-up for the Kings.
