I will be pulling out of Orlando summer league w/ #Nets.. Got a strained tendon in my leg. Should be 90-100% in a week tho.— Julian Wright (@HebrewJEWright) July 8, 2012
Julian Wright, the 6'9" combo forward who some thought had a good chance of getting a training camp invite, will not accompany the Nets summer league team to Orlando. He tweeted Saturday that a strained tendon will keep him out. Avery Johnson had signaled the issue after Saturday's practice, when for the third straight day Wright couldn't take the court. Johnson said Al Thornton, once a lottery pick for the Clippers, has played well in Wright's place. Rookie Toko Shengelia is also likely to get more minutes.
