Former NBA player, Lorenzen Wright, was found dead today in a Memphis field. Reports say, Wright, flew home over a week ago to visit his six children and friends. His body was discovered in a wooded area near Hacks Cross and Winchester and he had been shot multiple times. Police say, it doesn’t appear to be a suicide.
Wright played 13 years in the NBA with five different teams: the Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings and most recently the Cleveland Cavaliers with 17 games in the 2008-09 season. Wright left the University of Memphis early for the NBA, and the Clippers made him a lottery pick with the No. 7 selection overall.
LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony both sent out their condolences via Twitter:
