The Dallas Mavericks have signed free agent guard Chris Wright to a 10-day contract. Wright was playing in the NBA Development League for Iowa, where the 6-foot-1 guard averaged 15.5 points and 7.0 assists in his 38 games. He was a D-League All-Star. He spent the 2012 training camp with the New Orleans Hornets before going to the D-League. Wright is expected to join the Mavericks in San Antonio and be available for Thursday night's game against the Spurs. About a year after he was barely able to walk due to a frightening disease, Chris Wright was running the floor with the Dallas Mavericks during Wednesday's practice. Common symptoms of MS include fatigue, numbness, loss of balance, poor coordination, blurred vision and problems with memory and focus, according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which estimates that more than 2.1 million people are affected by the disease.
