1. Delon Wright

Wright is on an $8.1 million expiring contract and may want to play for a contender. He is getting just 15 minutes per game for the rebuilding Wizards, and the 31-year-old is unlikely to remain in Washington beyond this season. He could negotiate a buyout and join any contending team looking for guard help.

Wright averaged 7.4 points, 3.9 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.8 steals in 24.4 minutes per game last season. His shooting has been inconsistent, but the 6’5 guard is a career 35.4 percent 3-point shooter capable of making plays and guarding multiple positions. He could help any team and is comfortable coming off the bench to fill his role.

The 31-year-old has 0.2 VORP this season, despite his struggles. He is a productive player with a versatile skill set. The Suns could only count him on for a maximum of 25 minutes per game, but Wright would fill their need for a backup point guard.

Will the Phoenix Suns be active in the buyout market? They cannot sign Kyle Lowry, Spencer Dinwiddie, or anyone making more than the non-taxpayer mid-level exception before being let go. There are still several options, and the Suns have two roster spots to fill. Stay tuned to see who ends up in Phoenix.
