Four-year NBA forward Julian Wright will not be among those seeking a contract abroad during the lockout.

Wright, a free agent that played for the Raptors last season, had this to say when asked about a potential move abroad:

"I'm staying put. I'm a player rep and I know how hard our staff is working, so I want to let them know I am behind them and our fight. However, I understand that a responsible man has to do what he has to do to take care of himself and his family, but I'm fine. We are aware that there are many people who are in much more dire situations than we are so we aren't asking for sympathy. We just want the info that hits the press to be true and not stretched by the owners and their committee. Hopefully it can be settled soon."
