Positives

Offensively, Justin Wright-Foreman continues to look good. He might take a bad shot here and there, but overall, he gets to his spots and is smart and efficient. That end of the floor was never a concern.

Wright-Foreman averaged 17.3 points while shooting 46 percent from the field, 40 percent from three-point range and 80 percent from the free-throw line. His efficiency impressed me. It’s not easy being a smaller guard making the jump to the next, but Wright-Foreman looked like he’s been here before.

He’s a capable three-level scorer, but Wright-Foreman will do most of his work from the three-point line and around the basket. Those are the shots that NBA teams are after. He’s got a smooth lefty release and a quick first step, allowing him to slip past defenders.

Wright-Foreman has a bunch of different moves in his bag, and now must show that he can still score at will against NBA players. I see him staying in the league for a while thanks to his electric scoring. That’s what he’ll be known for.

He can still improve his floater, ability to get to the free-throw line and finish over length, but overall, his continued offensive progression is something to be excited about.
