SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes guard Delon Wright has reportedly been traded to the Atlanta Hawks as a part of a three-team trade.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN, Delon Wright was a part of a three-team deal that involved the Sacramento Kings, Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks.

Wright will go to the Atlanta Hawks. Kris Dunn, Bruno Fernando and a 2023 second-round pick will go to the Boston Celtics, while the Sacramento Kings acquired Tristan Thompson from the Celtics.

Wright averaged 10.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game, in 63 games played during the 2020-21 season that was split between the Kings and Pistons.

Since Wright was drafted in 2016, he will play for his sixth NBA team. He was taken by the Toronto Raptors before being traded to Memphis during the 2018-19 season. After that season with the Grizzlies, he signed with the Dallas Mavericks for one season before being dealt to the Pistons. Then he was traded to the Kings last season.
