Im so sad right now I just heard on ESPN news while play NBA Live 10 his body was found dead.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The uncle of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright says police told the family the athlete who had been missing for 10 days has been found dead.
Curtis Wright told The Associated Press that police called the player's father, Herb Wright, a couple of hours ago.
Police weren't commenting, but The Commercial Appeal cited a police source as identifying a body found in field in southeast Memphis as Wright's.
As police were at that scene, people flooded the area to watch.
The 34-year-old Wright was last seen July 18 when he was expected to fly out of town. His family filed a missing person report July 22.
Wright played 13 years in the NBA with five different teams.
Former NBA player Lorenzen Wright has reportedly been found dead in a wooded area in Southeast Memphis.
Memphis police are still investigating, but a report on myEyewitnessNews.com indicates that the body found "had been shot and it may be self inflicted." We haven't yet seen confirmation from authorities, but it appears that Wright's disappearance may have ended in the worst way imaginable. We'll continue to monitor this story for further updates.
