Former Maverick Brandan Wright has had a nice stretch of games recently, including a 16-point, eight-rebound, seven-block effort last week. He will be a free agent this summer, but he said he hasn’t given much thought to the future. The Suns are busy trying to make a playoff push in the final weeks of the season. So would he consider a return to Dallas? “That’s been a frequently-asked question,” he said. “You can ask me that right after the season. Right now, we’re just trying to get to the playoffs.” Dallas Morning News

Wright talked with coach Brad Stevens extensively over the last few days and knew at Friday morning’s shootaround he could be gone. “I really appreciated him in the time I’ve been here, he’s a great guy,” Wright said. “A heck of a coach. He’s got this thing going in the right direction. He treated me with class the entire time I was here. I enjoyed the short stint working here with him.” Said Stevens of Wright: “He’s a great kid. I said that many times. I really like the way he plays. With the guys that they have in that [Phoenix] system, he’ll really do well. It’s another jolt to your system.” Boston Globe
