The Golden State Warriors today re-assigned rookie forward Chris Wright to the Dakota Wizards, the Warriors’ NBA D-League affiliate.  The assignment marks the 65th time an NBA player has been assigned to his NBA D-League affiliate during the 2011-12 season and is the third and final assignment for Wright this season.

Wright returns to the Wizards, having appeared in nine games for the team during his previous two assignments, averaging 18.2 points, 8.0 rebounds 1.3 blocks and 29.0 minutes.

Wright, who earned a Call-Up to the Warriors from the Maine Red Claws in December 2011, has appeared in 19 games with Golden State this season, averaging 2.1 points and 1.0 rebounds in 4.8 minutes per game.  Prior to his Call-Up, Wright played in four games for the Red Claws, averaging 17.0 points and 10.8 rebounds in 31.3 minutes per game.

Golden State fans can stay in step with Wright, who is expected to join the Wizards today and be available when the team begins their 2012 NBA D-League Championship run on Thursday, April 12 in a first-round playoff game against the Bakersfield Jam.
