Delon Wright    G  Raptors

 

 

Delon Wright "is ready to step in behind" Kyle Lowry according to Josh Lewenberg of TSN. The Raptors traded away Cory Joseph to the Pacers in exchange for C.J. Miles on Sunday, an indication that they are confident in Wright as the backup. The Raptors use a lot of two-PG lineups and Wright can play off the ball beside Lowry, so he could potentially be looking at minutes in the 20s. He averaged 5.6 points, 2.1 assists, 1.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.4 treys in 16.5 minutes per game last season, so he could have some sneaky value in a larger role.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said he went with Fred VanVleet behind Cory Joseph instead of Delon Wright in Game 4 vs. Cleveland because he was looking for more shooting. "Well, I thought we needed shooting and, no disrespect to Delon — he’s going to be an excellent player in this league — but I thought we needed the threat and the possibility of a three-point shot they way they were double-teaming DeMar [DeRozan]," Casey said. Wright was a nice surprise for the Raptors in 2016-17 after returning from shoulder surgery in February, but he only played 16.5 minutes per game with averages of 5.6 points, 2.1 assists, 1.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.4 treys. He should be ready to take on a larger role next season, and he could be very relevant in fantasy leagues if Kyle Lowry leaves the Raptors in free agency.

Delon Wright didn't attempt any shots in 11 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one turnover. The opportunity is there for Wright with Cory Joseph really struggling and the Raptors going with more small-ball fours. Wright is just not being aggressive as a scorer, so it'll be tough to use him in fantasy until he shows some confidence. Maybe that happens on Monday.

Delon Wright scored eight points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday. That will work as the Raptors went smaller to help offset not having DeMarre Carroll (back) out there today. Wright does appear to be trending up, but he's still only worth a look in very deep leagues.

Delon Wright mentioned Norman Powell on Fred's post and said "next up"......unless he's talking about me then that's cancelled.
@waellomo Delon Wright will likely start off as the favourite to be the backup PG, but I could see that changing at some point.
