Mavs Trade Delon Wright to Pistons in Three-Team Deal

The Dallas Mavericks, Oklahoma City Thunder and Detroit Pistons have come to terms on a trade that would send Delon Wright to Detroit, James Johnson to Dallas and Justin Jackson to OKC, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The move would give Detroit a solid young guard fresh off a relatively down year in Dallas. Before he joined the Mavs, Wright averaged 12.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game for the Memphis Grizzlies in the second half of the 2018-19 season.

The move would give Dallas an expiring contract in Johnson, while Wright’s runs through the 2021-22 campaign.

Johnson will earn $16 million in 2020-21 and has already been traded since exercising his player option. The Minnesota Timberwolves sent him to the Thunder in the Ricky Rubio trade on draft night.
