Wright Wasn't NBA-Ready, Thorn Admits

In an interview with Fred Kerber of the Post, Rod Thorn admits first-round pick Antoine Wright was not ready for the NBA when drafted last June. Thorn told Kerber Wright wasn't getting minutes early because "didn’t deserve to get any minutes". However, both Thorn and Lawrence Frank like what they have seen recently from Wright, praising his work ethic. Thorn calls Wright "a work in progress" while Frank says the NBA remains "a learning experience" for the No. 15 pick in the draft.
